Motivating Others: Leadership and Inspiration


  Motivating Others: Leadership and Inspiration

If you want to be a leader, you have to learn how to motivate those around you and inspire them in order to achieve your goals. You may think that this can only be done with money or power, but there are many other ways — such as charisma or even a compassionate heart. Put the energy of leadership into what matters most, and discover how easy it is to lead others without being bossy!

This post will teach you about interesting (and unusual!) ways that leaders use their abilities for influence — without resorting to bribery or manipulation. We'll take a look at ten strategies from all corners of the globe and see which ones resonate with you most; then go deeper into each and see how they work. Let’s get started!

1. Show Your Passion and It Will Spread Like Wildfire

Leaders have passion, or else they are not leaders. People naturally want to follow a person who is excited about an idea and enthusiastic. They admire those who believe in the product they are making or the service they offer. In fact, people are drawn to those who are passionate about their work because it inspires them as well, and it makes them excited to do what you do. People don’t want a cold, emotionless leader who only cares about money — they want to know that you care, too, and that you have their best interests in mind.

2. Show Your Values, Be Ethical and Inspire Trust

People want a leader who is consistent in their actions and who proves to be reliable. They see how you treat others in your organization, and they want to work for someone with integrity. When you show your values through the way you behave, people will follow your lead. They will respect you because they know that what you say is true, that when you make a promise, it will always be kept…and most of all that they can trust you.

3. Bring Out Their Inner Child With “How To” Stories

Everyone loves stories about other people who have done something great or wonderful. It’s easy to give people permission to be great because they can envision themselves doing what they’re reading about. This is a great way to motivate others, especially when you can reach them with a story that will make them feel good about what they are doing and inspire them.

4. Give Them Your Glory-Bearing Spotlight

“I am …” People love this eye-catchy phrase, or the one that says “I encourage you!” It makes people want to follow your lead and it will make them eager to achieve their goals.
