Yesterday i attended TEDxBeirutSalon @ LAU, Beirut
TED “is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading — through TED.com, our annual conferences, the annual TED Prize and local TEDx events.” and that’s exactly what it is ..
the event was basically a screening of a few TED talks to bring in the spirit of TED to the local community in Beirut..
one talk that really stood out, caused controversy (yes it did!!) and brought home a very important point is a talk by Derek Sivers, titled: “How to start a movement”
transcript available in his blog as well: Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy (for those that suffer from #Ontornet)
Lesson: “Leadership is over-glorified.” .. “nurturing” the first follower is what makes a movement.
maybe only a true leader can appreciate the truth in this fact…
Just some food for thought.
