The idea of Reel Leadership began stirring in my mind years ago. But we need to go back in time before this idea began to ruminate in my mind.
I want to take you back to the beginning of my personal development journey. I was a young, excited man that was just starting out in the world. I was recently married to my beautiful wife (almost 17 years later and she is still as beautiful as the day I married her. Maybe even more so).
The journey started at the local Family Christian Bookstore that I worked at. On my lunch breaks, I would grab a book from the bookshelf, head into the breakroom, and begin to read. One of those books was 48 Days To The Work You Love by Dan Miller. This book literally changed my life.
It kickstarted the desire to read and grow. It showed me there were more possibilities in what I could do. This helped me launch the blog you’re reading right now.
As I continued to consume leadership and personal development content, a strange thing began to happen. I saw how many leaders talked negatively about movies and entertainment. They threw serious shade on entertainment.
I bought it hook, line, and sinker.
Then, there was a change. I began to miss watching the movies I loved. The next time I watched one, I saw things that I hadn’t seen before. There were leadership lessons to be found in the movies.
From this point on, I began to digest movies once again.
However, it was different than before. I enjoyed the movies but I also enjoyed finding leadership lessons in movies. That was the difference.
It’s the reason Reel Leadership was born. It’s the reason I wrote the book on leadership lessons from the movies. It’s why I want you to pre-order Reel Leadership. I want you to begin to understand how powerful movies are and the change they can make in your life.
What Is Reel Leadership?
Reel Leadership is a way to examine movies with a new way of thinking. Reel Leadership journeys with other leaders such as John Ramstead, Jon Harrison, Marty Himmel, Kary Oberbrunner, and others as they recount the leadership lessons they’ve seen in the movies.
Their stories combine with mine to bring about new ways to think about entertainment. It is a funny, introspective look at the ways movies are actually mondern-day, motion fables. They all have a purpose behind them. We only have to look.
