The Inspirational Leader: Leading So People Will Follow

A lot of employees are really, really unhappy.

So unhappy, that a survey by Mercer Consulting reported that 32% were seriously considering leaving their organization and another 20% viewed their employers unfavorably. Ouch.

Of course, many factors can contribute to an employee’s happiness, but one thing is certain.

No organization (no matter who it is) can win over unhappy and disengaged employees who aren’t energized and who don’t truly believe in their work.

And the secret to inspired employees?

Inspired leaders.

You, as the leader, can play a very important role in keeping employees engaged, in building their loyalty and igniting their passion – all resulting in bigger and better results for your organization.

Whether you run a team, a department or an entire organization, you can become the type of leader employees trust, believe in and willingly follow.
