Make a first follower

사람에 대하여

멀리 함께 가고싶어하는 사람들을 자꾸 만들어내는 게 리더의 자질
나와 비슷한 사람들이 아니라 내가 없는 것을 채워줄 사람들로 하나하나씩
 

능력에 대하여

평가되는 간격과 기준이 다르기 때문에 뛰어난 실무자와 뛰어난 리더는 교집합이 적다
Generalist, 말 그대로 조직 전체를 지휘하고 전반적인 판단을 내릴 수 있는 해당 조직의 전문가
 

행동에 대하여

융통성과 원칙 사이의 어딘가이지만 기본적으로 원칙주의자여야 한다
리더는 원칙을 지키는 사람이어야 하고 융통성을 만드는 건 따르는 사람이어야
하지만 과한 간섭과 질책은 잦은 실수를 만든다
 
 
팀원들을 이타적으로 만들고 그렇게 하는 팀 문화가 팀을 계산된 승률보다 높게 만든다
무엇을 해도 안전한 상태로 - 큰 실패가 있어도 평소와 같이 정상상태로 팀이 되도록
그럼에도 거짓 말고 진실만을 말하고 감정적으로 아끼는 것
 
 
 
First Follower: Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy
Official transcript at https://sivers.org/ff --- If you've learned a lot about leadership and making a movement, then let's watch a movement happen, start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and dissect some lessons: A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous. But what he's doing is so simple, it's almost instructional. This is key. You must be easy to follow! Now comes the first follower with a crucial role: he publicly shows everyone how to follow. Notice the leader embraces him as an equal, so it's not about the leader anymore - it's about them, plural. Notice he's calling to his friends to join in. It takes guts to be a first follower! You stand out and brave ridicule, yourself. Being a first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the first follower is the spark that makes the fire. The 2nd follower is a turning point: it's proof the first has done well. Now it's not a lone nut, and it's not two nuts. Three is a crowd and a crowd is news. A movement must be public. Make sure outsiders see more than just the leader. Everyone needs to see the followers, because new followers emulate followers - not the leader. Now here come 2 more, then 3 more. Now we've got momentum. This is the tipping point! Now we've got a movement! As more people jump in, it's no longer risky. If they were on the fence before, there's no reason not to join now. They won't be ridiculed, they won't stand out, and they will be part of the in-crowd, if they hurry. Over the next minute you'll see the rest who prefer to be part of the crowd, because eventually they'd be ridiculed for not joining. And ladies and gentlemen that is how a movement is made! Let's recap what we learned: If you are a version of the shirtless dancing guy, all alone, remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals, making everything clearly about the movement, not you. Be public. Be easy to follow! But the biggest lesson here - did you catch it? Leadership is over-glorified. Yes it started with the shirtless guy, and he'll get all the credit, but you saw what really happened: It was the first follower that transformed a lone nut into a leader. There is no movement without the first follower. We're told we all need to be leaders, but that would be really ineffective. The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow. When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first person to stand up and join in. --- Original video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA8z7f7a2Pk
