The leaders that inspire are those who use a personal combination of strengths to motivate individuals and teams to take on bold missions and to hold them accountable for results.
And they unlock higher performance through empowerment, not thorough command and control.
MORE IDEAS FROM How to Be an Inspiring Leader
Just as leaders who deliver only performance may do so at a cost that the organization is unwilling to bear, those who focus only on inspiration may find that they motivate the masses but are undermined by ordinary results.
Inspiring others comes more from how you act in your day to day life than from some extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Think about your daily habits, and how those contribute to feelings of inspiration.
Mindsets drive what leaders do and why they do it.
Two different leaders might face the same situation but respond to it very differently. One leader might see the case as threatening, whereas the other leader might see it as an opportunity.
Being charismatic helps in a small way, for some people in some circumstances, to be perceived as inspiring and motivating.
But there are countless leaders who are identified by their colleagues as highly inspiring who are definitely not charismatic.
