Would You Dance?

Posted on 12. Jan, 2011 by in Blog, Leadership and Development, Servant Leadership

Perhaps Kenny’s leadership approach of  “give them candy”  works for 10 year olds;

O.K.,  us older ones as well.  But let’s take another look at how leadership – happens,

as demonstrated in the following clip by Derek Silvers.

This clip illustrates a key principle of Servant Leadership.

As a leader, from the very beginning –

It’s not about you.

Also, a great reminder that leadership takes courage, simplicity, and a willingness to be authentic.

If you were captured dancing in this video, where would you be?

The first follower?                 The leader?               Later in the pack?

    The first follower is certainly a hard position to find oneself in. It’s a tough to jump out on a ledge with the leader and hope he isn’t some random nut. More scrutiny from the crowd; still standing alone, in effect.
    This is a great example of the difference and the value of one.
    Thanks for posting!

    Hard to to be the first follower. I think I’ve jumped out before when perhaps I should have waited, and held back when I should have jumped out! Ahh.. the power of discernment! 🙂
