Leadership Essentials: Inspiring
Inspirational leaders energise, engage and motivate their teams to deliver higher performance by offering a compelling vision of the future. They create a shared sense of purpose, provide clarity around goals and objectives, and support, encourage and empower individuals to develop and take personal responsibility for their own success.
‘Leadership Essentials: Inspiring’ provides an overview of why inspirational leadership is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how inspirational leadership can help you become a better leader.
The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at inspirational leadership in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:
- Motivation and Engagement
- Role modelling
"All of us would do well to understand more about role modelling and to develop ourselves as role models: it encourages behaviours which lead to a more effective organisation and helps us to be more aware of ourselves”
Steve Macaulay (2010)
"A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success."

"When our respondents reported feeling happy with their jobs, they most frequently described factors related to their tasks, to events that indicated to them that they were successful in the performance of their work, and to the possibility of professional growth."
