What leadership lessons can we learn from a shirtless dancing guy? Derek Sivers pulls some leadership insight out of the video below to show us what it takes to begin a movement. You can see his 3 minute Ted Talk here. As Sivers points out, a movement needs a leader who is willing to stand alone. But you don’t have a movement until you have followers. Without followers, you’re just a shirtless dancing guy. Check out this video and let me know your thoughts below.
I love what Sivers has to say about the first follower: “It was the first follower that transformed a lone nut into a leader. There is no movement without the first follower…The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow.”
