Best 3 minute video I've seen recently - on leadership

Kara Powell | May 23, 2011

In his blog last week, my friend Rudy Carrasco pointed to this great 3 minute video from the 2010 TED Conference. It is SO worth watching, especially if you care about leadership.

My favorite quote from the video: “The first follower is what transforms the lone nut into a leader.”

Indeed, there is great power in finding, or being that first follower.

What are you wanting to do to lead out but are afraid to?

Who could be some of your first followers?

What would the movement look like?

Seriously, this video is worth watching and thinking about.
