Question 4 : In their book Individu, groupe et organisation, Côté et al. (1986), the authors speak of Bennis: « A climate of trust is essential to any organization to operate healthily. To build confidence, the leader must demonstrate trust, reliability and determination. Bennis reminds us that people prefer to follow a person on whom they can rely on even if they disagree with him, rather than follow someone with whom they agree but that frequently change my mind. Thus, the leader inspires confidence not by seeking consensus, but by being clear and stable in his or her major orientations. Mrs Thatcher, Prime Minister of Great Britain, brilliantly adopted this style of leadership. According to Bennis, this characteristic is of crucial importance for the leader. »
