From The Archives: “Dancing Guy: Why teachers should ignore his advice”

| 1 Comment

I’ve recently re-started an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

One piece I wrote that received a fair mount of negative feedback was Dancing Guy: Why teachers should ignore his advice, which appeared in The Washington post.

Here’s an excerpt. Let me know what you think:

  1. I think the point of this TED talk is that leaders to be brave enough to take the first steps. The first follower is also a leader, because at that point you still need courage to be different from the crowd. But any leader would do well to remember that people are much more likely to follow someone with whom they have a trusted relationship. They will only overcome their reluctance to join if trust has been established. I like to know my leaders are willing to do the same that they expect me to do. Show, don’t tell.
