Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy: The First Follower and more...

Lesson created by Amanda Bjorn using

Video from Derek Sivers YouTube Channel

Let’s Begin…

Today, we are going to be learning some lessons about leadership from a shirtless dancing guy. We will watch dancing guy create a movement, from start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and during this, we will hear from Derek Sivers as he dissects some fascinating lessons about leadership.

Create and share a new lesson based on this one.

The shirtless dancing guy used many personal, social and environmental sources of motivation and influence to create this movement.  You can learn more about how to use multiple sources of influence to impact behaviour using the Influencer Model by VitalSmarts.  To learn more about The Influencer Model, click here. Page 4 of the document linked above shows the 6 strategies that can increase our influence on human behaviour.  Discuss as a group (if you are doing this learning with others) or record as an individual (if you are doing this learning alone) the Influencer Model strategies that dancing guy and the first follower used to influence the crowd and create their movement.
