Leadership Lessons from Tiananmen Square
While students were on February Break, after helping host a series of alumni events in Florida, I went to Baltimore to attend the annual conference of the National Association of Independent Schools. While there, I saw a video that I thought would speak to many in our school community. The video, "Leadership Lessons from a Dancing Guy", was the last part of a session run by futurist and curricular innovator Charles Fadel. Fadel didn't create the video; he simply used it to make a point about leadership and followership. In the video, which you can find by simply googling the title above, a shirtless dancing guy is grooving to the music at an outdoor concert (I'm told the band is Disco Biscuit). After a minute or so, this animated artiste is joined by another guy—the first follower—who joins in and invites his friends to come. One friend does, and then another, and a movement is born. By the time the three-minute video ends, dozens of people—I think it might even be over 100—have joined in.
