7 Keys to Truly Inspiring Leadership

What’s the secret to truly inspiring leadership — the kind that delivers the motivation employees need to break through walls and accomplish the incredible?

Sales expert Geoffrey James has interviewed thousands of executives, and in this post for Inc.he reveals the seven traits that the most inspiring leaders call on to push their employees and colleagues to achieve more than they ever thought possible. He also provides examples of how ineffective leaders tend to have the opposite beliefs, motivations, and characteristics. “Inspiring leaders believe that success serves a higher purpose,” James writes. “When you ask what motivates them, they talk about making other people successful. Uninspiring leaders believe that success is their higher purpose. When you ask what motivates them, they talk about what makes them personally satisfied.”
