The first thing that an aspiring leader must realize is that they must be inspiring!
That is, they must be capable of, and willing to inspire people on to greater things than if the leader were not in their lives.
So, is this too grandiose an ideal for the average local business owner? Absolutely not. The people who work at your business, school or organization need to be inspired by you on a regular basis. It is what keeps them from giving up.
Remind those you lead of the big picture.
They are not just serving food, they are helping families spend time together, so make it enjoyable.
They are not just changing oil, they are making sure a woman and her children don’t break down on the side of the road at night.
They are not just teaching, they are opening young minds to the mysteries of the world.
They are not just selling gifts, they are helping people show their appreciation to others in a tangible way.
So, my challenge to you is go INSPIRE!
Until next time,
