Often when I talk about leadership, I like to say that everyone can be a leader, and at some point in every person's life they've had a chance to be a leader, and have either taken that opportunity or let it go.

Sometimes, the option is to either be heroic or be a victim. Sometimes, just surviving is being heroic. Other times, helping someone else survive is both heroic and showing great leadership.

This is a relatively short post because I want to show this video that came my way via an email a friend in Australia sent to me. It focuses on something I didn't even know was a part of September 11th, 2001, and it shows that, when the chips are down, sometimes the most unlikely options come to the fore, and the most unlikely people become heroes in their own right. And in my opinion, those heroes are the types of leaders we all need to learn how to be. Because leadership doesn't mean you always have to be "on"; you just have to be there when needed.

Enjoy the video and let me know if you agree with me:
