When I saw this article appear in my Facebook feed, I was initially cautious. Although I am a fan of Bear Grylls and enjoy watching his exploits, I knew he had a military background and was anxious that his leadership lessons would all revolve around highly structured, top-down, command-and-control systems. I should not have worried. This short article demonstrates through a powerful, personal story the benefits of being seen as part of a team as opposed to just leading a team. Leading by example and going out of your way to help others are both strong themes within the article, as is the need to accept the inevitability of failure and the ability to learn from this. If you are looking for inspiration on how to develop as a motivational leader, then check this article out!
