The Charisma of Competence is the second documentary film by The Dakota Institute. It is the story of one of the most important governors in North Dakota history, a man who determined to change North Dakota from and essentially agrarian place to a modern state with a diversified economy. He championed in-state coal fired electrical generation plants, sparked the dormant State Bank of North Dakota back into life, and helped create a vibrant sugar beet processing industry in North Dakota.

Bill Guy was elected Governor of North Dakota four times. He was not a spellbinding public speaker or a flamboyant political leader, but he had white historian Larry Remele has called “the charisma of competence.”
