Be a Leader or the First Follower - Both Require Courage!

Please watch this You Tube Video (3 minutes) first!

It's another take on leadership...

"Being a first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the first follower is the spark that makes the fire."

Not everyone is born to be a leader, but all leaders need people to believe in what they are doing and to follow.  The first follower needs courage to step away from the crowd and join in.

"Remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals, making everything clearly about the movement, not you.  Be public. Be easy to follow!"

Support your followers...encourage your followers...they may be the next leaders...that you may, in turn, follow!
