When it comes to starting a business or anything in general that requires multiple people to contribute to the same cause, then organically there will be a leader of that group of people. There are many ways to be a good leader, and if you want your business to thrive, then it is very important that you work on becoming the best leader you can be. To be a leader is not to be able to tell people what to do, but rather inspire others to take action through self-motivation. The greatest leaders turn followers into leaders by inspiring action, because action leads to progress which leads to change.
Here at WorkL Lush, we are huge fans of TED Talks, because they feature some great people we can all learn from. Well this particular video is a flashback from 2010, featuring Simon Sinek. He talks about How great leaders inspire action with examples of two of the greatest leaders we know today Martin Luther King Jr. and Steve Jobs. They extremely different types of leaders I extremely polar situations, but thing they had in common is the fact that they inspired the masses which lead to great change and progress as a society, now if that’s not leader, then I don’t what is.
The audio is a little rough at first, but pay attention and you may learn a thing are two about being a leader. Enjoy!
