“To inspire is ‘to breathe life into’.” — Dictionary definition
“The awe-inspired person does not want to get hold of or to possess what he reveres … He seeks only to get himself into the frame of mind appropriate to the revered object – one which renders him open to its summons and makes his vision clear for its beckonings.” — Medard Boss
“It was an American statesman who inspired me and taught me how to use every note of the human voice like an organ.” — Winston Churchill
“You have to find a way of working that makes it dead easy to take full advantage of your inspired moments. They never hit at an convenient time nor do they last long.” — Hugh McLeod, How to Be Creative
How many times have you died a death by PowerPoint or spreadsheet, in front of a corporate audience? Your intention may have been to inform and call to action, get people to work together or lead people into the future. And it fell flat. Next time, perhaps you decided to hire a professional – a motivational speaker of sorts – to deliver your message.
You are missing the powerful language of leadership. The ability to first engage your audience, and then, transport them to another place and time, another frame of mind. Now is the time to awaken your own ability to ignite the human spirit of the individual and inspire the organization as a whole.
