It was just hours before we kicked off our first-ever leadership event. Approximately 100 people were driving or flying in for two and a half days of inspiring goodness.
This pre-meeting was all about making sure I was prepared and ready with my opening and closing speeches. I admit, I had a bit of a reputation for “winging things.”
One of the women from the consulting team asked if I was planning to show the video they suggested. You might have seen it; it’s called “First Follower: Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy.” For some reason, this video has gone viral.
And look, I get it. There is some fun metaphorical stuff going on. The basic premise is that everyone is at a concert and no one is dancing. And then this one crazy guy starts dancing. And then the first follower. They overlay all kinds of leadership lessons while you painfully watch the shirtless “leader” dance with everyone.
