A Reel Leadership Article

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

The hit Netflix show Strangers Things is back for the final two episodes and boy were they good. So good, in fact, that viewers crashed the Netflix servers and people couldn’t stream anything on the service for a while. And the show even revitalized the 1985 Kate Bush song Running Up That Hill to the number one spot on the Billboard charts.

Instead of looking at movie leadership lessons, I’m giving my readers a double-header of Stranger Things goodness.

Today, there will be two articles. The first, this one, will look at Season 4’s Chapter 8 (the second article of leadership lessons from Stranger Things can be found here). These last two episodes are feature film length. Chapter 8’s runtime is 1 hour 25 minutes. Both of the episodes are worth the watch.

10 Leadership Traits Positive Leaders Focus On

The most positive leaders are also humble leaders. They know that they did not get where they are by themselves.

Instead, these positive leaders had help from others. Because of this, they understand that they will need to help others.

How to become humble: Look inside. See where you’ve come from. Look for the people who have helped you along the way. Remembering the people who have helped you will help you understand it wasn’t all you.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Elvis The Movie

A Reel Leadership Article

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Many people think they know the story of Elvis Presley (portrayed by the great Austin Butler). A great musician who rose to prominence. Then, losing it all due to a battle with drugs and obesity.

The new Elvis movie introduces us to another villain in the life of Elvis. That villain? His manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks).

In one of the most cinematic, visually stimulating, musically diverse films in recent memories, Elvis will be a hit movie.

We see the multiple stages of Elvis’ life, including scenes of him as a young boy (Chaydon Jay) wearing the symbol of the superhero Captain Marvel/Shazam. The progression is entertaining yet sad. It’s like watching a trainwreck, not because the movie is terrible but because of what you know will happen.
