The article is another great example of the "growing body of work" that is compatible with quiet leadership as described on this blog.
Greg's list also reminds me of my learning and new insights gained over the past two months. Please allow my to reminisce. Here is the list of myths with my links to previous posts.
Myth 1 - Leadership is a rare ability only given to a few.
Agree. Anyone can be a leader. It's a choice.
Myth 2 - Leaders are charismatic.
Agree. There is no inherent relationship between charisma and leadership. Unless you call it care-isma.
Myth 3 - The person with the title, most rank or the highest position is the leader.
Agree. No Title Required. Big L leadership isn't required.
Myth 4 - Effective leadership is based on control, coercion, and manipulation
Agree. Macho Management, No Thanks.
Myth 5 - Good leaders have more education than other people.
Agree. Education is great but not necessarily related to leadership. To me, its really all about learning.
Thanks for reading and reminiscing. Please lead quietly.
