Leaders and trolls
Creating shifts and changing the culture begin with people like you and I. On the axis of authority and responsibility, some take different approaches.
Creating shifts and changing the culture of business, remote work, education, racism, and even politics begin with people like you and I.
On the axis of authority and responsibility, some take different approaches.
On one end, we have amazing people willing to put their lives and energy into a cause and take responsibility for matters they believe in. They step up and put in the work. We see them as brave and often call them leaders.
They lead by example and influence using creativity and empathy. They share their message, and they take responsibility without demanding authority. Their authority is represented by the impact they make and the people who support them.
At the opposite end of the axis, we have people that create disruptions, perhaps with the intent to stir trouble and cause a ruckus. We call them trolls on the internet.
They have different intentions; they might be looking to elevate their status, feel important or get famous. They are relentless, offer critics, and use tactics to fuel the negative without fully understanding or caring about the matters at stake or the change at hand.
They cry out for attention, demanding authority without taking any responsibility or being willing to do the hard work.
We don’t need to demand authority to make an impact; we just need to be willing to show up with intent and take responsibility for something we believe in. The rest will follow.
Who are the leaders you follow, and why?
