How To Lead By Being Yourself

 How To Lead By Being Yourself

One of my favorite things to do, when I’m at a conference or event, is to observe the people who are presenting. Sometimes they are referred to as “thought leaders” or “keynote speakers” or “esteemed guests”. Sometimes they are famous… or infamous. When this person is introduced - they are hyped up by the person who is hosting. There is a long list of credits, accolades, and other intimidating factors. All of this build up raises my expectations to extreme heights and I assume their presentation will knock me to the floor.  This is an expert, they will inspire. Ultimately I’ll leave not only learning something new from them, but learning something new about myself.
