For those who don’t know Simon Sinek, he is a business visionary and Management Theorist. Whilst this video was posted up on Ted back in March 2014, it has a timeless message. Best part for me is about 10 minutes in, and I quote:
“Leadership is a choice. It is not a rank. I know many people at the senior most levels of organizations who are absolutely not leaders. They are authorities, and we do what they say because they have authority over us, but we would not follow them. And I know many people who are at the bottoms of organizations who have no authority and they are absolutely leaders, and this is because they have chosen to look after the person to the left of them, and they have chosen to look after the person to the right of them. This is what a leader is.”
Here is the video. Enjoy!
