TITLE: One Problem I Need Not Worry About AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: February 18, 2007 4:31 PM DESC: ----- BODY:
Indeed, for those of you with a strong, charismatic personality, it is worthwhile to consider the idea that charisma can be as much a liability as an asset. Your strength of personality can sow the seeds of problems, when people filter the brutal facts from you. You can overcome the liabilities of having charisma, but it does require conscious attention.

-- James Collins, Good to Great, page 73
I may have to worry about folks not telling me the brutal facts, but it won't be due to the force of my charisma. Good to Great offers folks like me other assurances as well. Helping a group to transform itself from good to great is usually more a matter of working with the right people, listening to the facts, and discipline than it does with charisma or vision. -----
