How to create a movement

I’m currently on a 3 1/2 day course for work. I won’t go into what it’s about, apart from that it involves Project Office methodologies and that I should end up accredited! And in consideration of that, I do have an exam in the morning and I really shouldn’t be on the internet (especially because I have a head cold and I should be resting!).

Anyway, half way through day 1 the Facilitator, in an effort to pep up her ailing students, played the following You Tube video for us. I had actually already seen it but I had forgotten how good it was. I also hadn’t thought about using it within the context of what I do as a career (which I only realised 2 months ago that what I am doing now can actually be a real career!).

I hope you enjoy it – it made me smile, and it made me think again about what my perception of leadership was, and about how important ‘followers’ actually are in creating any kind of change!

  1. Fantastic video. Full of good things. Especially noted, “First follower transforms a lone nut into a leader” and “Have the guts to be the first person to join in.” What also struck me were the me-too followers who joined in to follow the pack or out of fear of ridicule. Made me think what am I? A first follower definitely, but also a hold out who won’t join just because everyone else is.
