Do you ever catch yourself thinking how can you inspire your team?
You are supportive, creative, full of energy and ideas and your team sees you as a leader.
You probably have many thoughts and doubts running through your head.
The biggest headache for many is the uncomfortable thought “do I inspire my team?"
Let us review what is needed to be a true inspiration.
What do you need to be?
What do you need to have?
What do you need to do?
To inspire other people, you have to be inspired first.
You have to want something; have a vision, a dream that would inspire you and become your goal.
Goal that scares you first and makes your mind works faster and more efficient.
Goal that lets you see opportunities around you just by shifting your way of thinking and something what seemed impossible yesterday, become more and more reachable today.
Once you are inspired by your goal and you believe in it, you need a plan; an inspiring plan to work towards your goal.
Now you have to take action and execute your plan. Be consistent with your goal and your actions, no matter what.
Share the goal and the plan with your team. Tell them an interesting story how their life would change when you all achieve the goal together, how would it demonstrate, what can they achieve and gain for themselves. Let them see themselves as an important part of that journey. Involve them in planning small steps to achieve the goal.
They need to see advantages of your professional goal in their lives. They need to feel as an essential part of the team on the way to fulfil your & their vision. Eventually your vision must become the goal they want for themselves.
To keep them inspired all way long, your vision and your behaviour must be consistent; you have to become your goal.
Every journey to success has its ups and downs. Be prepared, do not give up and stay focused. Fight for your goal and the future of your team. It would not be difficult if you are inspired by your goal.

It is end of November. It was and still is a crazy unpredicted year for most of us. That is why it is even more important to start planning for 2021.
So, what do you want for yourself and your team? What is your professional goal for 2021?
One action to take:
Do you have your professional goal for 2021? If so, congratulations! I hope you have it in writing and every day you take actions to reach your goal.
If you do not have your goal yet, think about something that could inspire you to jump off your bed every morning and make you work towards it. Make a list of all your wants and choose the one that scares you most (yep, I'm not joking). I am not joking; the biggest challenge will be the best tool to shift your thinking.
Building a Dream Team could be an inspiring goal as well. Just pick one, have it in writing and prepare your action plan.
