Leadership and the Dancing Guy

April 1, 2010

A friend of mine sent this to me in an email – it’s a brilliant lesson about leadership and followership.  While we spend a lot of time thinking about becoming leaders, the best leaders are almost always the best followers as well.

It may be counter-intuitive, but I’ve watched too many people think that “leadership” is about telling everyone what to do.  More often, true leaders are the most effective “first followers” – they may not be the lone nut that comes up with an idea, but they’re the champion of that idea.
