Here is on of my all-time favorite TED(x) talks. I usually paraphrase this (loosely) for the third year med students during there first “clerkship school” during the medicine block. This message hit home on how and why great leaders inspire great things.
Whether individuals or organisations, we follow those who lead not because we have to, but because we want to. We follow those who lead not for them, but for ourselves. -Simon Sinek
