“The first follower is actually an underestimated form of leadership in itself. … The first follower is what transforms a lone nut into a leader.
Repeated psychology tests have proven that telling someone your goal makes it less likely to happen.
If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow.
And when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in.”
This 3′ video demonstrates the assessment very clearly : Derek Sivers: Comment démarrer un mouvement? | Video on TED.com.
