Most advice I see about leadership most misses this vital point.
Leading people is about getting people to buy into what you are doing – however crazy it may seem.
You could spend all day talking about the qualities of a leader OR you could watch this short film that shows you, very clearly, what leadership is – in 3 minutes!
It’s quite amazing the way that this commentator nails something that usually takes psychologists and game theorists hours to explain.
Here’s the points made in bullet form.
- Stand Out
- Make yourself easy to follow
- Embrace your early followers as equals and involve them
- Make what you are doing public
- Risk of ridicule reduces with numbers so publicise your numbers!
Remember it’s as important to follow what you consider important as it is to be the leader.
