It’s not just up to leaders to inspire 

The role of a leader is to inspire; right?

Yes absolutely, it’s imperative. My belief is that this is only a part truth.

The reality is that leaders, managers and everyone in the team needs to inspire other humans beings to do, be or think in a variety of ways. 

The person serving coffee has the role of inspiring you to:

  • Want to drink another coffee 
  • Drink again from their establishment
  • Ideally want you to want them to be the one serving you. 

Without inspiration we or those we come into contact with, live life in inertia.

We are all inspirational…

We are all inspirational we just don’t always recognise it or utilise it.

Our children want to be like us, our friends want to have a beer with us and our loved ones, wives, husbands and partners have devoted their lives to being with us. You don’t get that without the ability to inspire others. 

Reflect on:

  1. Who were you when you met these people?
  2. What were you doing?
  3. What have you done for them?
  4. How did you do it?
  5. What were you thinking and feeling when you were doing what you did
  6. What would need to be in place for you to be like that more of the time.

The role of a leader…

The role of a leader is to recognise the brilliance in others and help us to technique how much and when we shine.

When we shine we make other people’s days and in turn this leads to greater levels of satisfaction. 

Go shine…
