I listened to a podcast today, entitled Disruptive Leadership. It's a mashup, if you will, of pieces and parts of five TED Talks on the topic of leadership and the change agents that disrupt the status quo.
Although I resonated with each of the TED Talks, I want to highlight Drew Dudley's talk specifically today. In his talk, he discusses the notion that leadership is often seen as something immense and unattainable by most. His theory is that if we make leadership this significant thing, then we act as if it's not for us, when in fact, we're all leaders every single day. He believe we all have "lollipop moments" wherein we impact others and don't even know it.
I encourage you to listen to this very brief TED Talk snippet (a whopping 5:30 in length) to learn what Drew means by "lollipop moments" and how you may be a leader and not even know it.
Be open to what comes.
