Great talk but I want to add one thing for something he said in the end. Leadership isn't a gift but a skill. Some people are better at it like some are better at basketball. But we all can train it and be the leaders of tommorow.
So humble and very much clearly presentation . Your words sir , moves a mountain . You don't need to stand up ,your word enough is powerful and I salute and please share more mentor me. By your words. - thank you
By far one of the BEST I've heard. The calm demeanor, the different examples / short stories, tone of voice, and lastly I was able to visualize what was taking place as he told the stories.
Thank you ! I needed this today.
Seems that to be a good leader you should expect nothing in return. You lead because you've failed a lot and have learned. Hence show not force. You inspire and help others achieve greatness and success before ones self. During this process you are already achieving your own greatness and success. Just what I got from it. Not here for arguments.
Great speech, I would be A Just* leader, due to my lacking of needs.. Such as materials.. And power.. I have yet to find my destination.. I was born to be a free world leader. To guide the world to it greatest potentials. Yet I lack the potential to see where to start.
"Humility is the Seed for Humanity" ~WhiteStone~
Doing is not always empowering.. I think everyone has some ideas on leadership, but like diets.. most of them only work in certain situations. Learned leadership is taking empathetic skills with experience and empowering those beneath you to succeed in their goals, hopefully lifting you to yours.. it's not easy it's not a simple talk.. it's an ability to recognize what works,and the ability to adapt when it stops working.
Every human was born with leadership qualities. leadership is about choices and how you conduct your behaviors. Leadership is about disciplining your personality and putting other people first with joy and love. I say we all have it but some of us humans have a issue with discipline part and that is very important for anyone who want's to lead anything and anybody. Love and peace to you.
In the world I live in, leading without expliciting the hierarchy is the same as being eaten alive. You're obviously protected from your employees by a core of polite and sophisticated people.
Since you were in France during this talk, you should have looked better around you. I don't know how it is elsewhere, but here, the employee is the actual boss. If you don't show status, he will have you work for him in no time.
The dictionary definition of Leadership is: The position or function of a leader, a person who guides or directs a group.
However, what may be worth considering is this; is the person who “directs the group” always the one with the title leader?
If so, is that person the one who is best suited to lead? I would suggest that is often not the case.
Even in the best of times, leadership quite naturally comes with its own set of challenges. Those challenges are always intensified during challenging times. We are seeing this today, where we are at the opening to arguably one of the most challenging times in recent history.
Here at the brink, there is and will continue to be a unique set of stressors facing organizations, corporations, nations of the world and more importantly you and I. I say more importantly “you and I” because it seems to me that leadership in its present form is failing. As a result many who never desired a leadership position are being required to step up.
Many years I thought that leadership is a skill you can learn like to drive a car or anything else.
Now after I have studied the scientific insights of neurobiological foundations of human behavior I have to change my point of view over night.
It seems to be a fact that some, a small count of people, are born as leaders and others don't.
And all who are "born" as leaders have to realize that they possess a rare, marvelous and powerful gift.
But there is a big difference
The difference between great leaders and a bad leaders.
And the difference is only the size and direction of his or her ego.
A great leader sublime his ego for a goal far beyond his own ego. Great leaders have realized that the principle of "seed and harvest" is one of the ultimate laws of the universe. The translation of "cause and effect" to their own human behavior.
A bad leader is only driven by his selfish ego. Bad leaders want to drive in the harvest before they seed. They are exploiters in fact. Ruthless opportunists! Let the devil take the hindmost is their credo in life.
This is a genetic fact as scientists checked out in a lot of very serious and impressive studies.
So it is like Bob Davids said it in the end.
Leadership is a really gift. And if you possess it you only can develop and hone it.
I was and be a leader for over 30 years. And the credit and power people give to me will be given back to them from me.
And I created incredible results with all my teams with that manner.
But in the beginning I followed the wrong turn like the described bad leaders above. I was an Asshole!
I was only driven by power and selfish goals like to make lots of money and carrier. Because all did the same around me.
But I began to suffer from inner doubt. I got the insight to follow the wrong values and patterns.
So I began to study people, psychology and psycho therapy as an absolute beginner.
And as one of the results I have learned that you can never change someones mind, habits or attitude if he never will!!!
So don't spend to much time with those who are intelligent and able but even never will!
Spend your precious time to people who have the will to outperform something great together!
Search for meaning! Search for values! If you have to make the decision to count in a new member for your team.
Skills can be learned, but the "right attitude" has to be on board from start!
I wish all of you and your families a healthy, successful and peaceful life
One of the best I ever listen to. Thanks
I've worked in the field all my life, always hated when Mangment would come around n bark.But always loved it when that one like you came around an would offer a hand are a new way of doing things to make it easier or just a pat on the back by saying good job n thank You
It made my day n made you feel appreciate. Your 💯 % right
This is a cool video, thanks so much for making it. I also thought management and leadership were the same, but management is pushing and leadership is pulling. And you don't have to have a giant ego to be a leader which is a good thing.
Aykay I. Only if they are willing to. If you are willing to be a leader, then you were born to be. You learn and grow to be a leader, just need guidelines. I know there are people who dont have self awareness of this area - and they are not gonna change.
One of the best TedEx talks that I've listened to till date. Thank you Sir, for your precious time and for sharing your kind thoughts. Sure does give me a vision and understanding of the leader i wish to be. God bless you!

+Taylored fas It's NOT ignorance of history. It's. Use. Of. A. Direct. METAPHOR.
AKA solely relies on the fact that what you're comparing via metaphor are completely different.
In fact, since no one thing is even ever the same, you can say the saying "A fridge is like a fridge" is ignorance of properties of matter....
You're playing semantics, my friend.
+Taylored fas The only capability/tool our language has, or ever has, or ever will have, is direct metaphor.
Get off the high-horse. (Ha, see, another metaphor.)
He's not trained in the meta model, give him some credit.
i understand the message clearly, and i believe a tedtalk audience would be quite educated, and not to mention all of his references were prominent figures. And simplification to ease comprehension is a virtue really, but compromising with hypocrisy will con-volute the message, or in some cases, the value of the message.
I think this guy is wrong when he said about leadership "you either have it or you don't." Is he suggesting that you cannot learn leadership skills and acquire the traits? I don't know about this talk. Not encouraging.
What I heard: your organization either has leaders, or it doesn't (managers)...I'm afraid managers are the norm - least path of resistance...In nearly 30 years working for a huge Fortune 500, I can think of 1, maybe 2 people who were leaders.
leadership skills can be learned, but leaders are born that way. my brother is successful but he is a manager and admits to it, i on the other hand am a leader. he looks to me in our business to lead our people. combined we make a great successful team but seperate he would never get anyone to follow his orders after a short while, and i dont have the "killer instinct" for business. so sorry to say this but your wrong, unless you have those leadership traits and skills hidden that you havent discovered yet
I think he was basically saying you have to be the kind of person who won't take advantage of power and actually care about those in your team. You have to not see yourself as better, but more of someone there encouraging others to be successful. Most people are too selfish to be a leader.
You can learn leadership but that doesn't mean you have it. You have leadership when you use it, you learn leadership when you know it. The difference between knowing and using is different for all, some smaller, others larger and few have no difference at all.
Well I think he's right. You CAN learn to act like a leader, but the kind of leadership he's talking about is something very few people ever have. We are not Ghandi or Martin Luther King Jr. or Reagan, or FDR, or Churchill, or any of those people. The qualities that those people possessed were given to them at birth and honed by years of experience.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
