My thesis:

  • For the first time ever, everyone in an organization not just the boss is expected to lead.

  • The very structure of today's workplace means that it's easier than ever to change things and that individuals have more leverage than ever before.

  • The marketplace is rewarding organizations and individuals who change things and create remarkable products and services.  >>>

  • It's engaging, thrilling, profitable, and fun.

  • Most of all, there is a tribe of fellow employees or customers or investors or believers or hobbyists or readers just waiting for you to connect them to one another and lead them where they want to go.

Leadership isn't difficult, but you've been trained for years to avoid it.
