The article focuses on tipping-point leadership as the key to high performance in organizations. Tipping-point leadership is a kind of leadership that overcomes problems brought about by market forces and reaches the tipping point. The tipping point is based on the theory that once the beliefs and energies of a critical mass of people are engaged, conversion to a new idea will spread, bringing about a quick fundamental change. A four-step approach to reaching the tipping point is also presented.
