#008-Lead from the Bottom Part 1

A few weeks ago, I got a question from a Work on the Edge Listener. On today’s show, I’ll take a crack at answering the question in true Work on the Edge fashion.

The question I got was this: How do you become authoritative without authority?

This is an excellent question, and one that many people would probably like an answer to. But in that question I sensed that there was actually a different question that the person wanted to ask but didn’t.

In the episode, you’ll learn:

  • What question I think this person was really asking
  • Why this person asked a different question that the one they really wanted answered
  • Why there’s a stigma against telling someone you want to be a leader
  • The REAL job that most Americans won’t do
  • Why even people at the top actually lead from the bottom
  • How you actually serve more people than you realize
  • Why new members of a team often have additional “tasks”
  • Why deciding to help someone is nothing special
  • The simple way to make hard decisions easier
  • Why it doesn’t matter if people like you
  • About my attempt to become the 2nd best thing to being a Navy SEAL
  • And much more
