Perhaps the greatest gift that an outlier can give to those who inspire to follow is to grant a tour behind the scenes. Only once you get into the day-to-day operations of an enterprise do you get a sense of the work and commitment to purpose that it takes to maximize one’s talents. Oprah Behind the Scenes is a great example of a master revealing her decision-making process and deliberations. You get a sense of the alignment it takes to prepare for a show and the challenging decisions that need to be made in the compressed format of an hour television program.
Which enterprise would you most like to visit behind the scenes? Who could you invite to your cause that would inspire?
