Team - Inspiring Others to Follow

We seldom achieve success without help along the way.  Our challenge is influencing others to see our vision and inspiring them to take the journey with us.  Understanding how to communicate so that others trust you and are willing to enthusiastically walk side by side to get to the ultimate destination as a unified team is the goal of any good leader. 

 A great leader inspires and pushes others to reach their full potential.  This will only happen when there is respect and trust.   Just like at the Base Peak, before you can lead others, you must first learn to follow.  In the military, soldiers don’t automatically become Generals.  They must first spend years starting with boot camp and deploying to war zones to practice what they learned.  In their case it’s a matter of life and death.  In the business world, depending upon the type of business you are in, it could be a matter of physical life and death, or the very survival of the business.

“Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine..” – Chris Hadfield
