Leaders must achieve a peculiar balance in the way they manage their team. On the one hand, they must motivate/drive them to achieve an objective – timing, deadlines, the “external push” can be important. On the other hand, they must motivate/empathize with them to achieve an objective – gratitude, recognition, the “internal pull” can be most important. These two movements can be difficult to balance. The external push, unless accompanied by the internal pull, never generates sufficient sustainable force.
