7 Facets of Inspiring Leadership

I believe that people can achieve astounding results, in both life and business, when they are inspired. When someone is inspired, they hold the power to inspire many more and that is how leaders are born. My definition of Inspiring Leadership:the ability to create passion, purpose, and belief that lead to the achievement of astounding results.

There are 7 Facets that make up Inspiring Leadership:

1. Ignite the Passion

When people are passionate they will go the extra mile, they will work harder and longer in order to achieve the goal and as Inspiring Leaders we need to ignite that passion. Passion is contagious and the first thing we need to do is to find our own passion and look to transfer that to our teams.

2. Nurture Belief

People become inspired when they have the belief that they will be successful, and we need to nurture that belief. We all have greatness within us and as leaders we need to help our teams release their greatness. We need to build their confidence within their own abilities.

When we have belief that we will be successful it can become a self fulfilling prophesy.

3. Show What’s Possible

People have greater belief when they have a plan or an approach which shows them how to be successful. So we need to show them what needs to be done and the way to be achieve the goals. This then leaves them with the task of just following the plan and knowing that if they do that successfully then they will be successful.

4. Provide Purpose

People are much more inspired when they are trying to achieve things which are important,it gives them a sense of purpose, and a stronger desire to be successful.

We need to find the purpose and create the desire within our teams.

5. Invite Participation

It’s impossible to force a team to be inspired, so we need to invite them to participate, give them an opportunity to achieve something special, something astounding. I have found as a leader I always get better results when I ask rather than tell people what they need to do.

When people accept the invitation then they also accept partial accountability for achieving success, and when people accept accountability the probability of success increases.

6.RecognizeAchievement

We need to create some early wins, some quick successes and then recognise achievement, the more achievement we recognise the more inspired the teams will become as they start to see themselves progressing towards the goal. What we recognise gets repeated and we want toencourage ourteams to continue achieve success.

7. Empower Our Teams

The more empowered our teams are, the more ownership they take.The best way to empower our teams is to hold them accountable for outcomes. When you hold the teams accountable for outcomes, you allow them to take control of what needs to be done and if they see that the approach is not achieving the desired results then they can change it.

Inspiring leaders Ignite the passion, Nurture the belief, Show whats possible, Provide purpose, Invite participate, Recognise achievement and Empower their teams to be successful.

We can all be inspiring leaders, even you, why not be the spark that ignites inspiration, the world is waiting for you to lead the way.
