Inspirational Leadership

Inspirational Leadership

"Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow."

As a leader, you will have a vision, and you will probably have charted a strategic plan to achieve that vision. Inspirational leadership is about inspiring others with that vision, and inspiring them to follow you in to achieve that vision. The problem is that people are not led by plans and analysis. Martin Luther King did not say "I have a strategic plan". He said “I have a dream” which creates inspiration, self-respect and a sense of excitement in what he had to say.

The ability to inspire people to reach great heights of performance and success is a skill that leaders need. Passion, purpose, listening and meaning help make a leader inspirational. Inspirational leadership is the ability to communicate that passion, purpose and meaning to others helps establish the inspirational culture of your organisation.
