S2 E26: How to Grow by Being a Follower First with Enrique Acosta Gonzalez

Season #2

We usually hear about how being a follower is a bad thing, but in this episode Enrique Acosta Gonzalez argues that being a follower first is exactly how you become a great leader. 

Drawing from his experience with 20 years in the Navy, Enrique shares in this episode that our power as a leader comes from truly being of service first with a "service mentality and service heart". 

You will learn: 

  • What differentiates a good leader from a bad leader
  • Why you should never stop being a follower and a student
  • How to stop the comparison of your life/path to others
  • The power of now and staying still for leaders
  • Why you are on the right path if someone has told you "you're a breath of fresh air"
  • What differentiates a follower from a leader who executes (big difference!)
