A call to action that is priceless.

One trait that effective leaders possess is knowing when and how to call people to action. Regardless of what a leader is “calling people to act on” they must understand when and how to build widespread support. They also must be able to seamlessly engage simultaneously at the individual (micro), organization (meso) and community (macro) levels of society.

Like many competencies of effective leaders, this competency rarely manifests itself early in a leader’s life experience. In fact, it is usually the trait of an experienced, successful and more senior leader. Engaging the average person, building consensus across organizations, and taking the time to understand the wide diversity of perspectives which people hold is no easy task. And, the value of using this competency to act and make change  . . . priceless!
