My friend Stuart recently shared Derek Sivers’ video Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy

In less than 3 minutes Derek narrates the quick and pivotal pieces to being a leader with a key focus being The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader and therefore the courage required to be this first follower.

A perspective shift for many would be my guess, which speaks to the importance of all of us to be courageous.

I ask you to watch the video and record your answers to these two questions:

What would it take for you to be the first follower?

Describe the last time you were that courageous. (What did it feel like? What was the outcome? How frequently do you think of that moment?)

What’s here for you to learn from, as you step into you day?

And to quote Derek: Leadership is over glorified, it’s about courageously following

Courageous is where it’s at – Own it in your soul!
