Powerful Leaders vs. Forceful Leaders

We tend to confuse power with force.

Force makes things happen or makes people do what we want. Force generates and must constantly counter resistance. Force drains.

Power is clarity about and alignment of our purposes. With power, the right things get done with ease. There is no force in power. Power sustains.

We want to be powerful leaders, not forceful ones.
