vulnerable. Be willing to share your failures as well as your
successes. Others will relate to you. They'll understand that
they're not the only ones with challenges.
7. Tell stories. Facts tell and stories sell. They inspire,
too. We learn best from parables and we all need to develop
our own inspiring stories.
8. Be a good communicator. Increasing your ability to
communicate effectively is a critical element for you to
inspire others. Watch how you speak and what you say.
in your communication skills.
9. Challenge people. Many of us have had teachers who at times
seemed more like tormentors than mentors. They challenged us
to do our best, and we were better for it. Practice "carefrontation"--the
careful and caring confrontation of others.
10. Read. It may not follow that all readers are leaders, but
certainly all leaders are readers. Stay informed. Share what
you read with others. Tell people about books that have
inspired you. Share the knowledge.
