To drive change, leaders inspire those they lead to invest extra time and energy in making a difference for themselves and their organization.

They realize that mastering inspiration requires the synchronization of 3 factors:

  1. Their people trust that the leader has their back – that he or she understands what motivates and concerns them, is focused on them, and has high, but realistic, expectations of them.
  2. The leader is perceived as genuine and credible, consistently demonstrating conviction, while being positive, transparent and open to feedback.
  3. People feel respected and appreciated for their contributions, driven by the leader’s confidence in them and gratitude for their commitment.
How strong is your mastery of inspiration?
Which of these 3 factors require more of your attention?
