How good are you at being a follower?

Via this posting by Tyge Mortensen, I came across this 3 minute video. Watching the video, I learned, for example, that being a first follower is an underappreciated form of leadership. In fact, there is no movement without the first follower. The role of the first follower is a crucial role. He or she has the courage to stand up and join a lone nut who is doing something great. The first follower publicly shows everyone else how to follow - and transforms the lone nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the first follower is the spark that really makes the fire.
