Who are your First Followers?

This week I wish to share a video that calls us to consider some of the most courageous people in a change movement: the first followers.

The video shows how the most courageous person in any change process or movement is the first follower, not necessarily the person leading it. The first follower places themselves in a space of vulnerability initially, until the tipping point is made and the majority of people join the movement. 

Leaders need to awhi their first followers – without them, they don’t have a movement.

Enjoy the video here.

Need a speaker?

There are plenty of speakers to choose from. I am not the norm. You won’t be bored to tears by the same ole’ approach and dribble. How about bringing Mary-Anne for the conference or all-staff day.

Give me a stage and I’ll own it. Give me a room and I’ll energise it. Give me your people and I’ll inform and inspire them. 

Need virtual delivery – no sweat! I have facilitated virtual full and half-day workshops, virtual keynote speaking at online conferences, and might I say, you still get the Mary-Anne goodness you deserve!
