What is your favorite over-the-top, cheese-ball, make-you-want-to-vomit speech from a movie?
Mine is Bill Pullman’s speech from Independence Day.
You know – the one where he is the President, everyone is getting ready to hop into a fighter jet, and he’s got to motivate them to go and shoot a giant alien spaceship out of the sky.
Leaders, this is the model for inspiring your people to action.
Such willingness to read a terribly written script with purpose and conviction.
“We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive. Today we celebrate our independence day!”
…That’s the good stuff right there.
