How the Best Leaders Inspire People Every Day

Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - August 10, 2017 - 35:15

What is life without inspiration? To me it sounds a bit boring. Of course inspiration can come from anywhere, but because we spend the bulk of our time in the workplace, it is a natural setting to seek it out. Conversely, if you’re the boss, don’t you want to be seen as somebody who inspires? It’s easier said than done, but thanks to our guest this week, executive coach Kristi Hedges, there are everyday actions that any leader can take to be an inspiring and motivating force. In her latest book, The Inspiration Code: How the Best Leaders Energize People Every Day, Kristi shows how to become a leader who builds commitment and fosters greatness in others. Having spent years studying exactly what inspiring leaders do differently, Kristi likes to think of inspirational people as the four Ps:PRESENT: investing their full attention and letting conversations flowPERSONAL: speaking genuinely, listening generously, and acknowledging the potential of those around themPASSIONATE: exhibiting sincere emotion and exuding energy attuned to the situationPURPOSEFUL: helping others find meaning and see their place in the bigger pictureIf you think your boss might be missing one of the Ps, maybe it’s time to pull him or her aside and have a friendly chat...
