Personal Power vs. Positional Power
Power is the ability of a leader to command the respect, attention and desired actions of those who follow.
Positional Power stems from a leader’s title or rank compared to that of the followers under them.
Personal Power is the combination of positive traits and characteristics a person possesses that makes them naturally appealing to others.
Be mindful of these two types of power as you proceed in your career – no matter your rank or title! In other words, think about who you are when your business card goes away.
