My passion is helping leaders find their purpose. It is helping them to identify what it is that provides the motivation to move their teams from good to great. When working with leaders who wish to inspire action within their organization, I like to share Simon Sinek’s TED talk titled “How Great Leaders Inspire Action.” This talk inspires a leader to “Find Your Why.” It can help you to understand not only your own motivation but also to effectively communicate to your teams the organization’s purpose. As Sinek states in his presentation, “We follow leaders not because we have to, but because we WANT to.” Those inspirational leaders share WHY they do things first rather than simply WHAT needs to be done.
What motivates you? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please post your comments below.
