This is the 19th installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can access the other episodes HERE.
Being a control freak can be detrimental to your activism efforts. I know this from experience. I have a tendency to want to try to handle everything on my own. This is not an effective leadership strategy.
In this installment of the Activism 101 podcast, I talk about the importance of delegating tasks and responsibilities to other people, and explain how my own unwillingness to let some things go has hindered our work.
