Leadership Speaker Reggie Love: How to Lead When No One Wants to Follow
One thing Love talked to us about was the concept of leading when no one wants to follow, which is a situation that Obama, and any president, really, finds himself in daily. The fact is: it’s easy to lead when times are great, or even good. But leadership in its purest form more often only shows itself during tougher times. It’s an important distinction that Love, a kind, amiable, and whip smart speaker, drew out with ease. It’s easy to misjudge leadership was his main point. Is a team great because of actions put into effect by its leader, or is the leader simply in the right place at the right time? These are questions worth investigating, and puzzling over, Love reminded us, because leadership—especially today—is not something to be taken lightly.
