7 Secrets Of Inspiring Leaders

  1. 1. 7<br />The Secrets Of<br />Inspiring Leaders<br />
  2. 2. “Great leaders lead by ideas” <br /> – Rudolph W. Giuliani<br />
  3. 3. Great leaders lead through ideas, not through positional power and authority.<br />A leader’s ideas guide their actions, a leader’s ideas aligns their team and a leader’s ideas inspire their organization towards a common goal.<br />
  4. 4.  Ideas engage people’s minds and help them see new possibilities and new opportunities. <br />As leaders, our ideas are important. Leaders need clear ideas and philosophies about how to win in the marketplace, how their organization should operate and how to develop their people.<br />
  5. 5. A Leadership Philosophy = A Network of Ideas<br />A leadership philosophy is an inter-connected network of ideas that constitute an internal model of leadership. A personal philosophy is about knowing what you believe and why you believe it, involving a personal learning process, deliberate and continuous. In this sense ideas form the basis of a personal leader philosophy.<br />
  6. 6. Great leaders are also students of life.<br />Great leaders spend time in introspection gaining an understanding of their strengths and weakness. They know what they want and why they want it, having invested time in reflecting on their approach to leadership. In this sense these leaders are self-made, rather than a product of their genetic make-up or their social environments.<br />“Leadership and learning are <br /> indispensable to each other”<br />
  7. 7. Carmine Gallo writes in Business Week, “The Seven Secrets of Inspiring Leaders” discussing research by Maritz Research which found that only 10% of employees look forward to going to work. The main reason? A lack of leadership. Here are seven secrets the inspiring leaders use to result in inspirational communication:<br />
  8. 8. Secret # 1 : Demonstrate enthusiasm—constantly.<br />“Inspiring leaders have an abundance of passion for what they do. You cannot inspire unless you’re inspired yourself. Period. Passion is something I can’t teach. You either have passion for your message or you don’t. Once you discover your passion, make sure it’s apparent to everyone within your professional circle.”<br />
  9. 9. Secret # 2 : Articulate a compelling course of action. <br />“Inspiring leaders craft and deliver a specific, consistent, and memorable vision. A goal such as "we intend to double our sales by this time next year," is not inspiring. A vision is a short (usually 10 words or less), vivid description of what the world will look like if your product or service succeeds.”<br />
  10. 10. Secret # 3 : Sell the benefit. <br />“Always remember, it’s not about you, it’s about them. That’s the same thing you need to ask yourself constantly throughout a presentation, meeting, pitch, or any situation where persuasion takes place. Your listeners are asking themselves, what’s in this for me? Answer it. Don’t make them guess.”<br />
  11. 11. Secret # 4 : Tell more stories.<br />“Inspiring leaders tell memorable stories. Few business leaders appreciate the power of stories to connect with their audiences… No amount of data can replace that story<br />Stories connect with people on an emotional level. Tell more of them.”<br />
  12. 12. Secret # 5 : Invite participation.<br />“Inspiring leaders bring employees, customers, and colleagues into the process of building the company or service. Instead, today’s managers solicit input, listen for feedback, and actively incorporate what they hear. Employees want more than a paycheck. They want to know that their work is adding up to something meaningful.”<br />
  13. 13. Secret # 6 : Reinforce an optimistic outlook.<br />“Inspiring leaders speak of a better future… Colin Powell said that optimism was the secret behind Ronald Reagan’s charisma. Powell also said that optimism is a force multiplier, meaning it has a ripple effect throughout an organization. Speak in positive, optimistic language. Be a beacon of hope.”<br />
  14. 14. Secret # 7 : Encourage potential. <br />“Inspiring leaders praise people and invest in them emotionally. Richard Branson has said that when you praise people they flourish; criticize them and they shrivel up. Praise is the easiest way to connect with people. When people receive genuine praise, their doubt diminishes and their spirits soar. Encourage people and they’ll walk through walls for you.”<br />
  15. 15. No leader accomplishes a vision alone. Inspiration is critical to rally people to make the journey and to commit the time and energy required to bring a vision to pass. These seven techniques present some great ways to inspire and motivate people to greatness.<br />
  16. 16. Leadership is art AND science, the science of leadership can easily be learned in a classroom, but the art of leadership requires the translation of ideas into action!<br />Thank You Very Much<br />SompongYusoontorn<br />
