As the Chief Excitement Officer of DisruptHR, I’m often asked to share how DisruptHR got it’s start. Were we planning to start a movement? Did we have plans for it to grown into what it’s become today? The easy answer to both of those questions is “No.” 🙂
You may already be familiar with DisruptHR. But I’m sure there are some who’ve never heard of it, or they have, but they’re not quite sure what it is, and if it’s something they should get involved with.
So I decided to share the origin story in an episode of the Impact Makers podcast. And whether you’re a huge fan of DisruptHR or not, I think you’ll get some great takeaways!
DisruptHR has grown from an idea shared over lunch, to a global community that has helped thousands of people around the world to get their ideas heard, and to connect with like-minded people. It was created out of a desire to encourage leaders to take risks, to stir the pot and to “disrupt” in order to succeed.
My hope is that by listening to this episode, you’re encouraged to go out there, find a place where you can start dancing, get somebody else to dance with you, bring on even more people, and create the change you want to see in the world!

“The First Follower transforms a lone nut into a leader. If the leader is the flint, the First Follower is the spark that sets the fire.”
“The Second Follower is a turning point: it’s proof the First has done well. Now, it’s not a lone nut, and it’s not two nuts. Three is a crowd, and a crowd is news.”
