The Brink of Chaos

Nature of Leading and Following

Nature of Leading and Following

Concrete and concise stories of leadership are hard to come by, but the video below provides exactly that.  It creates a visual picture of the relationship between leaders and followers.

I originally saw this video on Seth Godin’s blog in the middle of last year. Seth mentioned that we need more “Guy #3″s.  Since then, I’ve often come back to reflecting on this video when I think about leadership and the nature of crowds.  It’s proven to be a valuable mental picture when thinking about how movements spread.

So when I saw that this video was used in a TED talk by Derek Sivers, and that he made some additional excellent observations, I wanted to share it with others. Plus, he received a standing ovation at TED, and it’s easy to see why.

Below is his version. Enjoy:
