How do you lead? (SEA)

Here in this glorious world of November Project, we operate on a simple hierarchy.  You have your leaders and your tribe.  Simple as that, right?  Tribes have two (some have three) individuals that address the group, draw up the workouts, snap their fingers, and boom! November Project.  It’s really a pretty simple dynamic if you put it that way.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a sprinkle of truth in any of the preceding statements.  Anyone who has experienced a November Project workout knows it’s a collective effort that gets this beautiful motherfucker off the ground.  There are a number moving parts that imperfectly synchronize to create an inexplicable phenomenon.

One of these many parts are leaders.  No, not the leaders we all know and love who are leading the bounce and giving out the Positivity Award.  The leaders who are there every week, giving out high-fives and hugs, speaking words of encouragement, showing newer members how exercises are meant to be done, and above all else, the ones who bring passion and love for November Project with them when they show up.  These individuals are necessary and they are just one of the many critical parts that make November Project what it is.

So, I ask you.  How do you lead?  Are you the first off the line when the starting gun goes off?  Are you there every week when the weather turns wet and cold?  When you see someone from your tribe outside of a workout, do you give them a hug?  Do you recruit?  Are you busting your ass to the finish line?  Do you attend the social gatherings that your tribe members organize?  Have you received the Positivity Award?  Do aspire to?

The list is endless as to how you can lead your tribe.  Remember, it’s important.  It’s important to your tribe, to your co-leaders, to your community and most of all, to yourself.  Before your next workout, think about how you’ll lead.
