Leadership in the Form of a Shirtless Dancer

Ashley sent me this video.  It sums up the entirety of all the activism work I did in college.  It really captures the essence of leadership and what it takes to make it work.

    We watched that in my Engineering Leadership course a couple semesters back. Our professor – a guy who really knew his stuff – pointed out that the one who is really the “leader” is not the first guy dancing. One guy dancing is just some dude being goofy. It’s the second guy who gets up there and joins him who turns it from one man’s endeavor into a group movement.
