Who Is Your Professional Idol?

I finally dished out $10 (well, $24 if you count my popcorn, candy and soda!) to see This Is It, and while it was fascinating to see Michael Jackson's backstage persona on the job, I was particularly struck by the awe his backup dancers had for him. The documentary opens with an emotional scene of the crew sharing their audition tales — shot before MJ's death — and throughout the film we see the chosen few standing stage left grooving to Michael's sound checks. It's clear from their tears, stories, and smiles that the dancers worship his professional history. Do you look up to any one person in your work life for their talent, career, or success in your field?

I work in marketing and my hero is Seth Godin-he has the most original way of thinking about things and doesn't talk down to anyone.
