Summary
Transcript

Seth Godin, best-selling author, blogger, speaker, and marketing expert, is all about being direct. His communication style is straight to the point. His blog entries are often short and sweet, and they are packed with memorable lessons and valuable insights because there’s nothing extraneous in there. In this video, Seth explains why being direct requires bravery. He tells a story about his friend Nathan Winograd, who led the charge to create the first no-kill animal shelters across the United States. Nathan didn’t have a leadership “title;” he didn’t know if his idea would work; he didn’t know how to make it happen. But he knew what his end goal was, and he was direct in asking people around him to get on board with his clear vision. “The bravery of being willing to stand up and say something -- even if you’re not sure -- that bravery can run as deep as we want it to,” says Seth. What changes are you willing to stand up for?
