Carrot And Stick Approach Does Not Work

If you want to become a motivating and inspiring leader, you must first realize that this status is earned in relation to others and cannot be decreed overnight by force.

Autonomy

The first thing to understand is that the people you lead do not necessarily tend to avoid making efforts and not working hard. In fact, work is just as natural as rest or play.

Mastery

Once your employees have been given autonomy, you will have to allow them to reach a maximum level of control. First of all, you must keep in mind that really mastering what you are doing requires a lot of work and effort.

Purpose

Finally, there is one last key principle to becoming a motivating and inspiring leader. You must be able to bring out the purpose of what you are trying to accomplish on a daily basis for your employees. Indeed, there is nothing worse than working without goals.

Conclusion

No one is born a leader. Becoming a leader is something that is worked on a daily basis and requires a lot of effort. The starting point is to know the 3 key principles of autonomy, control and purpose. Once identified, you will have to put them into practice so that your teams can develop and give meaning to their daily efforts. This is how you can gradually emerge as a motivating and inspiring leader for your employees.
