One-Buttock Leadership

Watch this engaging video of Benjamin Zander at TED. (HT: Rex Miller).

What are the implications for leadership?

  • Leaders must stay focused on the vision.
  • If everything is important, nothing is important.
  • The leader must stop thinking about every note and concentrate on "the line from B to E."
  • While the details are necessary, they should not be given too much focus.
  • A mechanical approach to anything is rarely engaging.
  • A leader has power only as he or she helps others powerful.
  • A leader can tell if he or she is awaking possibility in other people if their eyes are shiny.
  • A leader's success is measured by the number of shiny eyes.

A missional leader will stay focused on God's grand story and be surrounded by shiny eyes.
