5 Leadership Lessons From a Crazy Dancing Guy
Entrepreneur Derek Sivers popularized this dancing guy 8 years ago with his observations about leadership. I think there’s more to learn.
Everyone is a leader…we’re almost always in a dual role of being a follower & leader.
Followers don’t just copy. In this video, we see followers modify & the leader incorporates dance movements to make something even more complex and interesting.
Leaders and followers, as equals, learn from each other in a feedback loop.
“Being a first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader.” – Derek
But here’s the tricky part.
Leadership can be for good or bad.
Following a nut can be dangerous if the nut is destructive.
Being able to discriminate between good and bad, between worthy and unworthy, between positive creativity and negative destructiveness, is a vital aspect of being a leader with noble character.
1. Leadership takes courage
2. We are both a leader and follower
3. The leader-follower dynamic loop leads to innovation
4. Nurture your followers, because followers emulate other followers
5. We must thoughtfully choose who, what, and how to follow & then call others to join.
