If you’re looking to grow as a leader, I challenge you to find a place where you can be a Leader of Leaders.
I’ve found that leading leaders is challenging, inspirational, and can lead to amazing trajectories in life. For me, some of my roles that have been most rewarding are taking on the role of moderator in my EO forum, then later joining the EO Atlanta Board, and now being involved in the Atlanta Tech Village.
In each of these experiences, working side by side with entrepreneurs who have already accomplished amazing feats in life, are extremely well connected, and are the most dynamic humans walking the planet has led me to be better in so many ways.
- You learn from other leaders things that you can’t learn in a group of “ordinary.”
- When a team is made up of all extraordinary humans, the team itself accomplishes things that “ordinary” teams cannot fathom.
- Group dynamics in leaders are extreme. Managing strong personalities, deeply engrained opinions and passionate expression of those opinions is challenging and will push you to the limits of your patience and tolerance. It will make dealing with “ordinary” people seem easy.
This is one of the reasons the Atlanta Tech Village is emitting such an attractive energy to the community. It is the brightest and best the South has to offer all gathering in one small corner of Buckhead. The enthusiasm, optimism, geeky smarts, ambition, and inspirational accomplishments are amazing.
