One of my frequently asked questions as a coach is “By whom are you inspired?” Mostly the responses I get are “What do you mean?” or “Do you mean like a historical person or a management guru?” Others are really clear and name their favorite authors. My next question is “Who is inspired by you?”
Silence. Shyness. Stuttering.
I would love this to be the exception and not the rule. Wouldn’t it be great if we consciously shared our passion, contribution and key messages to the people we know listen to us? And to stretch it a bit further…Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we now and then learnt that we inspired someone to do something new that we didn’t even know about, just because we were able to get our message across in a way that appealed to these people?
- How can we stretch ourselves and become even more influential to stand out more?
- How can we get our ambition, expertise and message across to become the person in demand to a larger extent?
- How can use our own story and our own presentation to network effectively and create the lasting impression we want?
Most of us do not wake up in the morning, asking ourselves, “Whom do I want to inspire today?” Perhaps we should. Learn more from our great inspirational contributors during the Virtual Leadership Conference.
