First and foremost, Happy Friday!
I don’t know about you, I read a lot of material on Leadership and business style……ran across this video that has a few great take-aways. This reminds me to stand out and do it my own way!
–Sometimes a leader needs the guts to stand-alone and look ridiculous (most of the people who have made medical breakthroughs were ridiculed at one point).
–Being a ‘first follower’ is actually an under appreciated kind of leadership. Without these early adopters, a movement would never gain traction. So….
–If you are a leader, make sure you nurture your ‘first followers’ as equals, making everything about the movement and not you.
–Finally, when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the courage to be the first one to stand up and join in. You just might start a movement!
Question for Conversation or Reflection: Where might you lead by being a ‘first follower?’ Leave your thoughts in the comment box below:)
