Inspirational Leadership

Inspirational leaders create an inspiring culture within their organization.

Inspirational Leader: 10 Roles

People are not led by plans and evaluations. If you want to move and get the best from your people, don't say "I have a strategic plan". You must create inspiration, self-respect, a sense of ownership and excitement.

Inspirational leaders breathe life, confidence and creativity into the organization. They supply a shared vision and inspire people to achieve more than they may ever have dreamed possible. People change when they are emotionally engaged and committed.

Inspirational leaders create 'can-do' attitude and make business fun. They unlock inner power of their people and sustain their commitment. They inspire, energize and move people. They build corporate communities in which people feel valued, capable, confident and strong. They inspire team members to believe in the extraordinary work they can do together.

People do what they have to do for a manager, they do their best for an inspirational leader... More

Innovation-Adept Culture


Establishing the culture of innovation requires a broad and sustained effort. Though changing a company's culture is never easy, with the right leadership, cultures can be reshaped and amazing results can accrue. Establishing an attitude of relentless growth is what enables an organization and its people to achieve their goals. The spirit of relentless growth keeps fresh ideas flowing and reinvigorates your company. Thus, "the primary challenge facing market leaders is to institutionalize an environment where every decision and direction can be constantly and safely reassessed."2... More

Sense of Ownership

Employees who have a sense of ownership are more motivated than those who feel that they just work here. Individual employees and teams thrive when they have a sense of ownership. The more empowered and engaged people are, the more committed they are to the company and try to do their best.

Using Strategic Intent to Motivate Idea Generation

The Fun Factor

Do you really want to learn innovation and know what is deep inside, at the core of successful innovation ecosystems like Silicon Valley? "The truth is ... it's a ball! Hard work combined with hard play - at every level, from executive down and back up again."1 

People don't only work hard, but also have a lot of fun at the same time. And they are not just having fun, but planning it and making it part of their culture. This is the spirit that truly enables relentless innovation and creates innovation-adept culture...More

Freedom To Fail

Making mistakes is essential to innovation and organizational growth, as long as systems are developed to avoid making the same mistake twice.

Freedom to fail means a freedom to explore, venture, experiment and succeed in uncharted territory.... More

Lessons from Peter Drucker

Leadership is not rank, it is responsibility. It is the lifting of a subordinate’s vision to higher sights – the raising of a subordinate’s performance to a higher standard. It is the building of a subordinate’s personality beyond its normal limitations. A leader must set strict principles of conduct and responsibility, high standards of performance, and respect for the individual and his work... More

Harnessing the Power Diversity

Diversity of thought, perception, background and experience enhance the creativity and innovation.

It was by taking a different view of a traditional business that major innovations were achieved. To find a better creative solution to the current practice, force yourself to reframe the problem, to break down its components and assemble them in a different way... More
