Can We Stop Equating Stage Charisma to Leadership Competency?

I recently listened to the Podcast “The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill.”

Have you heard it?

There is a LOT to take away, but toward the end of the second episode, one moment stopped me in my tracks.

You can read this NEW POST for the details, but in summary, it reminded me that we too easily equate stage charisma with leadership competency.

We need to stop this, like now.

Hear me out: I love my friends that are great on stage. Some of them are equally great leaders. Some aren’t. Some don’t even want to be. But because they are charismatic in front of people, we assume they’ll be competent at leading with people.

In this article, I discuss this difference and provide a simple solution.

Thanks, friends!
