Diane Dileo gave me a copy of Seth Godin’s Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us” to read. His thesis is that since we are not limited by geography anymore, being a leader is easier than ever as your tribe awaits you. His idea that we are all leaders and that leadership is a behavior that we develop is very motivationally delivered by Godin. Love it.
Here is a poem taken from the end of the book:
People don’t believe what you tell them.
They rarely believe what you show them.
They often believe what their friends tell them.
They always believe what they tell themselves.
What leaders do: they give people stories that they can tell themselves. Stories about the future and about change.”
