Have you ever met someone or watched a certain TED Talk and instantly felt inspired? Some people are born leaders while some acquire traits over time. Inspirational leadership is a style of leadership where a leader not only motivates you to do better but also inspires you to become a better version of yourself. They push you to think out-of-the-box and embrace change. Read on to know more about the powerful characteristics of inspirational leaders.
What are the core competencies of inspirational leaders?
A truly inspirational leader is someone who has a crystal-clear vision. He/she knows how to handle a situation and is always prepared for contingencies.
We all need leaders who teach by example. A good inspirational leader is someone who urges us to take a plunge. He/she guides their team members to make their own decisions, achieve their personal goals and learn along the way.
Wouldn’t we look up to someone who is well aware of their own strengths and weaknesses? An inspirational leader is self-aware and conscious of their own limits. But that doesn’t stop them from pushing their boundaries to achieve their objectives.
One of the strongest traits of an inspirational leader is authenticity. It important for a leader to be unique and different in order for them to stand out. A leader who connects well with their audience is the one who builds a relationship with them. Be it by sharing their journey or life experiences, authenticity helps a leader build trust.
Not every leader is inspiring, right? They may be interesting to listen to but not always thought-provoking or moving. Strong communication skills and good body language help leaders gauge their audience and have their undivided attention. Inspirational leaders are great at sensing the emotion of the room to connect better with their audience.
