Habitual vs. Situational Leaders

Leadership Moment asserts that there are two types of leaders: Habitual leaders and Situational leaders.

Habitual leaders are the natural ones, who tend to be good at leading whatever group they are in. They feel natural taking charge and running point on just about any project. They lead out of habit.

Situational leaders are those people who make up the majority of the population. Most of them don’t even feel like leaders—until they find the right situation that fits their passions and their strengths. Once in the area of their strength, they come alive and become the right one to lead in that particular situation.

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom or a business executive, you can exercise influence and leadership in your life. Experts believe the most introverted of people will influence 10,000 others in an average lifetime. In others words, every one of us, even the shy ones, are influencing people around them. If you became intentional about the way you influence others, imagine the impact you could have!

Remember, leadership is influence -- nothing more, nothing less!
