This video on what makes a leader sounds compelling.
My key take aways from Simon’s talk include:
1. People don’t buy what you do, but why you do it
2. The why question stimulates me to think about my belief.
3. The laws of diffusion of innovation lies with addressing the why, how and what inside out
4. The success stories of truly inspiring leaders is that they inspire so you do what you will do, because you know why you do it. They inspire people to say and resonate: “I have a dream, not I have a plan” because they are there to serve, not to be served.
So why would you believe these quotes in leadership?
Why is Belief the hallmark of success?
Do you believe in your dreams becoming true? Why would you believe?
Why do we need educators? Aren’t they the ones who inspire you to fulfill your dreams? They should be the one who help and support you, like your parents, when you grow up.
Why is why the most important question in this world? Is it the one that would transform you? Why? How? What?
Why we need shared leadership? So how about shared leadership in PLENK Networks and Community?
I believe I can fly
May I share Stephen’s ideas about leaders here? Good food for thoughts.
The person whose voice is most respected in any group is not the person who leads, or is smartest, or is even right. It is the person perceived by the rest to have the least self-interest, the person who is there to help rather than the person who is there to pursue an agenda or toot their own horn.
