The Inspirational Leadership
We used to believe that some leaders are naturally more inspiring than others.
Then, just as research was starting to prove that inspirational leadership is teachable, public opinion turned against “the myth of the charismatic leader”, blaming it for everything from Enron to the Financial Crisis.
Yes, charisma can be
a powerful weapon
in the hands of
the wrong leader.
But choosing not to develop it when you are a decent person is like refusing sailing lessons from fear that they might turn you into a pirate.
Another common misconception about inspirational leadership is that it is something that bigger-than-life leaders beam down on their followers from a stage. Ask any organizational employee whether they would prefer a boss who inspires them (and then, for a quick reality check, ask them if they have such a boss). The answers will tell you everything about why you owe inspirational leadership to your team.
