Openness, Cohesion and Heart are Key to Being Inspirational

By Torri Myler

When analysts take a closer look at the reasons behind the success of some companies and failure or mediocrity of others, their attention often focuses on issues having to do with leadership and inspiration. Whenever there are people at the top of organizations or its departments who can propel their teams into pursuing a goal, they go much further than those who lack encouragement from above. It is sometimes a result of a series of orchestrated efforts that gradually contribute to developing a company culture, but more often it has to do with individuals or groups of individuals working closely together that have mastered the ability to guide others. Importantly, becoming a beacon for the entire organization is not something reserved only to incredible talents or business prodigies, but seems to be within reach of most people. It might not be within easy reach since it involves hard work and a set of qualities that often need to be honed for years. Three of them – openness, personal cohesion and bold heart – are central to this effort.

In organizations and elsewhere, inspiration is in biggest demand when some sort of change is in order and employees or structures have to be urgently roused into activity. This means, in turn, that whoever does the inspiration job has to be an early adapter, staying abreast with the latest trends and tolerant of all sorts of transformations, evolutions and rearrangements. There is nothing more stimulating than movement since it is capable of bringing the best out in people and generating fantastic new solutions. Staying put, banking on inaction, dragging your feet are all counterproductive when it comes to moving forward, so anyone who aspires to the role of a source of guidance and inspiration has to appreciate progress and be able to make a case for it to draw others.

Personal cohesion is a must for a person with an inspirational agenda. Nobody in their right might is likely to accept a leader without thoroughly honest credentials and a code of conduct that is characterized by integrity. Except for those under some sort of extortion, contemporary employees requires its trendsetters, especially in professional contexts, to be paragons that can be looked up to. Whenever there is a serious and long-lasting mismatch between how they talk and how they walk, their credibility gets undermined and their claim to be a beacon might go down the drain.

Truly inspirational leaders are bold enough to go for things others dread to think of. Their role is to think outside the box and take decisions which are not light, not obvious and not easily accepted by the team or by the environment. However, their strength, stamina and conviction need to be at levels that handle even this kind of adversities with calm. Of course, this is not to say that it is their responsibility to make every difficult move alone, falling back on corporate training , corporate training programs or other support being part of what courage is about.
