It has become much easier over the past few years to watch TED talks. Even easier to access stuff from a few years ago. I recently re-watched and was captivated by the very simple talk given by Derk Silvers. The dynamics of creating a movement simplified.
- Leaders: The importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals, so it is clearly about the movement, not you.
- Leadership is over glorified. The first follower transforms the lone nut, into a leader. Don't be afraid to join someone.
- Have the courage to follow a lone nut. If you find someone doing something great don't be afraid to follow them and start a movement.
