Leadership lessons: Are YOU an Underdog??

See also

It’s not always what it seems. Take this amazing TED Talk by Malcolm Gladwell. He pushes us (very gently) to explore the stories and myths handed from generation to generation. He asks us to question everything, especially what we think is most obvious.

Leaders take heed. Ask questions and then ask again. Dig deeper.

Take David of David and Goliath fame. Was he really the underdog? Hmmm, it is not always what it seems on first blush.

Gladwell is a gadfly. "Ya gotta" love him.
