Yet, as a leader, you are remembered because you were able to move an agenda. Leaders are remembered for their accomplishments, not their promises.
Which is, you go onto a stage. There is an orchestra sitting. They are all, you know, warming up and doing stuff. And I go on the podium. You know, this little office of the conductor. Or rather a cubicle, an open-space cubicle, with a lot of space. And in front of all that noise, you do a very small gesture.
Something like this, not very pomp, not very sophisticated, this. And suddenly, out of the chaos, order. And this is fantastic. And it's so tempting to think that it's all about me. Laughter All those great people here, virtuosos, they make noise, they need me to do that.

You know, Arthur Rubinstein, the pianist, used to say that, "Anywhere in the world, people that have the flu, they go to the doctor. In Tel Aviv they come to my concerts. But Viennese audiences do not do that.T'S EASY TO THINK that you need a title to be a leader.
So much of what we talk about when we talk about leadership is in the context of a title. According to Wujec, the solution to any business problem starts with a piece of bread.
In his talk, Wujec says that drawing out the process of making toast is a simple but useful example of how. If you want to get to the top in any field, whether it’s business, science, or even construction, you have to have some pretty solid leadership skills.
Dan Ariely is a behavioral economist who has gained a deeper understanding of human motivation than most economists could ever hope for. He even designed experiments that would help solve the mystery of motivation, which is what this video is all about.
