Inspiring Leadership: An Individualized Approach to Leadership Development

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.”

John Quincy Adams

Inspiring Leadership: An Individualized Approach to Strategic Leadership Development

Leadership is an influence relationship among leaders and collaborators who intend real changes that reflect their mutual purposes.

Dr. Joseph C. Rost, Ph.D.

Our Inspiring Leadership approach to strategic leadership development is a uniquely individualized program. We accommodate the demands of busy leaders and entrepreneurs. Inspiring Leadership uses the Science of Motivation® and the Reiss Motivation Profile® to equip you with the knowledge and skills to inspire each individual you lead.

Most strategic leaders fail to recognize their natural tendency to lead others the way they personally need to be led.  Inspiring leaders adopt an individualized leadership approach, that strategically adapts, to be the leader each individual they lead, needs the leader to be. A strategic leader’s goal is to be a positive influence and force for growth and change. Effective strategic leadership encourages a person to choose to be willing to follow the leader’s direction.  Inspiring leaders fully understand human motivation.  They know why we do what we do and effectively speak to the hearts and minds of those who they seek to have follow their lead. Inspiring leaders know how to strategically link what needs accomplished, to the individual needs/desires/values of the person, who is responsible for the accomplishment.  Inspiring leaders believe they are not leading an organization or team, but are leading individuals, who form organizations and teams.  Inspirational Leadership is a highly effective, proven 1-on-1 approach, that achieves and sustains excellent performance from individuals, teams and organizations.

“Organizations are built on trust. Trust does not mean everyone likes each other. It means people can trust each other. And this pre-supposes that people understand one another. Taking relationship responsibility is, therefore, an absolute necessity. It’s a duty.”

Dr. Peter Drucker, Ph.D.
