Title Personal leadership: the difficult balance between individual, organization and society Summary This article shows the potential conflict among two forces: one is the organizational and social dynamic that push the individual throughout expected homogeneous behaviours; the other is the trend of this individual towards his personal development based on his own personal values. Stanley Milgram´s findings and experiments about obedience are the main argument developed alongside this article. Personal leadership, as the individual capacity to govern his own life according with his own personal values, turn to be crucial in solving this potential conflict. Keywords Leadership, personal development, organizations, humanism, individual compromise
