Inspiration: A Key to Change

If your actions inspire others


Leaders must inspire! When we are inspired we dream. When we are inspired we create. When we are inspired we achieve.

Inspiration is even more essential when we are asking people to change. Here is a truth that bears repeating again and again. People want to be part of something that is bigger than them, part of a mission that bonds them with others who feel the same way and part of something that will make a difference.  They want to be inspired.

16 points on how to inspire

  • Provide the why behind what you are asking
  • Lead by example and share in the hard work
  • Have high expectations for people - challenge them to excel
  • Be honest and sincere: deliver on promises
  • Invite people to the table and allow them real input and power
  • Be there for them-provide  the needed resources and guidance
  • Show gratitude: Celebrate daily achievement
  • Share the credit
  • Provide hope especially during trying times—encourage them
  • Protect and advocate for your team
  • Listen
  • Inspire others by taking a stand for what you believe in. 
  • Care about others
  • Be open to be inspired yourself
  • Share your experiences
  • Model Learning

This list isn't definitive. Reflect. Identify strategies that work for you. Share what you have learned. Inspire others to think and grow. 


In a prior post, we said that trust is the glue that holds people together.  I read somewhere that “inspiration is the oil that greases the work; without it, the engine burns out and the whole enterprise comes to a sudden stop.”

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Adams
