Day #733:TED Talk- Redefining Everyday Leadership

Drew Dudley was the catalyst for changing a woman’s life by merely giving her a lollipop at freshman university orientation. The funny thing is that he doesn’t remember the incident at all – which sparks the main crux of his TED talk about what it means to be an everyday leader. Dudley, a leadership educator, contends that the word leadership has expanded to encompass a definition of super human feats, making daily acts of leadership unrecognizable or falling to the wayside.

This inspiring and quick-paced TED Talk  packs in a lot of mind-expanding concepts in only six minutes, ending with one of the most beautiful definitions of leadership and what it truly means to change the world:

“ …We’ve made leadership about changing the world, and there is no world. There’s only six billion understandings of it, and if you change one person’s understanding of it, one person’s understanding of what they’re capable of, one person’s understanding of how much people care about them, one person’s understanding of how powerful an agent for change they can be in this world, you’ve changed the whole thing.”
