This Inc.com article highlights “3 Things Leadership is Not” written by Les McKeown who has recently written a book titled “Do Lead.”
1) Leadership isn’t about charisma – Charisma can be a great tool for a leader to wield – but it’s not a prerequisite. Nor is it necessary to be a wonderful communicator or motivator.
2) Leadership isn’t about genius – There are very many exceptionally clever people who could never be though of as effective leaders – most likely your old college professors included.
3) Leadership isn’t about position – Leadership has almost nothing to do with an org chart. Many people who never rise to prominence in an organization consistently act as leaders.
