As a business owner, employer, mother, father – whatever your leadership role is, you have the capability of inspiring people in your daily life.
As a leader you can help people to believe in themselves and what they do, so they can achieve their goals. Studies show that inspiration assists in progressing towards goals. So people who were generally more inspired in their daily lives also tended to set inspired goals, which were then more likely to be successfully attained.
Give credit and reward successes. If they are struggling, then be a good listener, address issues with proactive coaching and motivate them to get ahead. Provide opportunities for personal development and growth.
Make yourself a trusted person who is open, honest and delivers results. The inspirational leader connects with others in meaningful and unique ways. Show that you care about the people in your life, and not just their performance.
Rather than looking at the person as your employee, your daughter, your business partner – get to know the person underneath that “title”. Express that you are interested in who they really are and what makes them tick.
Good leaders remain intellectually curious and committed to learning. They’re inquisitive and always looking for new ideas, insights and information. The best leaders understand that innovation and new approaches can come from many places and are always on the lookout for knowledge or people who might inform them and give them an advantage.
