Given the turbulence of the world we now live in, clear and effective leadership has never been more important. But equally, there has never been greater pressure on leaders to perform and to provide inspirational leadership for their teams and organizations. If people are to step up into challenging leadership roles and succeed in inspiring others, their first priority must be to find ways in which to discover that inspiration for themselves. The Inspired Leader will help them to do just that. Based on both commercial practice and research conducted with Henley Business School, Andy Bird shows the ways in which inspiration is actually experienced by people in leadership roles. The book also explores how a variety of leaders, in a range of business environments, have reached these states of inspiration in practice and how they maintain them over time, despite the many obstacles and challenges they go on to face. Divided into three key sections, the book addresses the following questions: * How is inspiration experienced? * How can inspiration be achieved? * How can inspiration be sustained? The result is a compelling collection of stories and breakthrough insights, which are accompanied by a practical set of personal development tools and exercises. Together, The Inspired Leader provides unrivalled support for those in any kind of leadership role to discover their own path to a more inspired life as a leader.
