Compelling Leaders in an organization are the strategic difference between exceptional achievement and mediocrity
Ben Garber

Nothing can fully take the place of the indespensable work of leadership
Theodore Roosevelt

It happens all the time in all kinds of organizations. Someone is placed in a position of leadership, but they lack the skills to engender loyalty, attract followers and use risk as a technique to grow and learn. These are the positional leaders that can bring organizational growth and employee achievement to a halt. What kinds of leaders are there at all levels of your organization? And . . .

Are They Compelling Leaders or Positional Leaders?

Compelling Leaders . . .
Positional Leaders . . .

Lead by the power of their competence

Lead by the power of their position

Are leaders from any position

Only lead when they are the “top” player

Understand what they know and don't know

Think what they don't know is unimportant

Take action

Manage the actions of others

Are always actively learning

Use only their current knowledge

Take risks

Would rather play it safe, taking minimal risks

Learn from risks that fail or succeed

Blame others for failure

Are followed

Are obeyed – or are they?

The first powerful reality is that positional leaders can learn the principles and practices they need to become Compelling Leaders. The second powerful reality is that people at all levels of an organization can use the principles and practices of Compelling Leadership.
