A David I greatly esteem asked me:
What do leaders need?
I instinctively answered ‘followers’ where, of course, my prefrontal cortex should have held me back. A leader doesn’t need followers. A leader needs leaders.
My followers are, to me, if anything else, leaders. And I need leaders to lead what I follow more than I need followers to follow what I lead.
So, dear mister Weiner, can you please adjust my profile as specified below? I promise you, the gratitude of the followers you would instantly promote to leaders might bring you fulfilment vaster than you currently deem existable.
