I love this video. "Leadership from a Dancing Guy" shows the simplicity of a widely research topic of organizational change. The tipping point for innovations typically happens around 18%. This means that any new product or innovation is striving for that critical 18% mark before the Market rewards the company or they tip towards critical mass. They key is not the early adopters, or the trailblazers.. it is the followers.
There have been times in my life where I have regrettably sat in the grass without the courage to get up and dance. Typically I regret my decision. This regret is what continues to drive my decision to consciously choose to Be the Dancing Guy.. or Support the Dancing Guy for the causes, initiatives and passions that I believe in.
Chip and Dan Heath, in their book Decisive outline one approach to analyze your decision to stand up. They call it the 10/10/10 Rule. Will your regret your decision in 10 minutes? 10 Months? 10 Years? This helps put perspective on your decision to get up and dance.
The question is if you have the courage to dance if you want to? The answer is so simply outlined in this video. There have been many folks that have been the shirtless dancing fellow in the front, there have even been followers, but has there been the follower of followers? This fun video shows the importance of thinking beyond your own self-consciousness and getting up to dance.
