You don’t have to be a CEO to be a leader – Alex Budak – TEDxKI
In this talk, author and educator Alex Budak challenges conventional notions of what it means to be a leader today, and who gets to call themselves one. He introduces us to a concept he calls Microleadership, which has helped people from all walks of life realize their own leadership potential. He shows how leadership starts not with a title or formal authority, but with small steps that anyone can do, and how tiny acts of leadership can catalyze big impact.
Alex Budak is a faculty member at UC Berkeley, co-founder of StartSomeGood, and the author of Becoming a Changemaker. He teaches, speaks and writes to make leadership more attainable, change more positive, and impact more inclusive. At UC Berkeley, Budak created and teaches his transformational changemaker curriculum to undergraduates, graduates and executives, and directs the Berkeley Haas Global Access Program. A social entrepreneur at heart, he co-founded StartSomeGood, which has helped more than 1,200 changemakers in 50 countries raise millions of dollars to launch and scale new change initiatives. His book, Becoming a Changemaker, has been endorsed by Nobel Prize winners, Olympic athletes, and most meaningfully of all – by his former students who are using these ideas to change the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
