Swing Analogies: A Good Lead is Like Shouting in a Library

August 10, 2010

A good lead is like shouting in a library…

This analogy came out of a private lesson we gave recently where I explained that we, as leaders, want to make sure our basic default movements are all relaxed and efficient, with no extraneous “noise” or tension coming from any part of our bodies.

Thus, when a “lead” does happen, our follower feels an obvious change, and the lead is loud and clear, as if it were shouted in a library.

I think if we’re not careful, our leads can easily be “shouted in a World Cup audience.” All of the extra noise and tension they carry makes it hard to determine the difference when leads do come.
