Followers of the Lone NUT

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!' - Goethe

We have had a chance to discuss different types of leaderships. Leadership types are characterized by different set of situations. Few of our collective brain storming outputs include,

Behavioral Leadership

Situational Leadership

Charismatic Leadership

Action Leadership

Thought Leadership,

Democratic Leadership

AND Accidental Leadership - Thanks to Rizwan Ahmad to coin it :)

But then again Followers play an important role in leadership and defining a leader. As Derek Sivers say, first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader. As they say, picture is worth a thousand words, so is movie worth a million words. I would like to connect to a movie and the article by Derek Sivers where he shows a video of a dancing guy who spark up the followers.
