Use Your Creative Energy To Energize Others

Don't follow the market, lead it. Use your creative energy to energize others.

"Creative energy whispers 'edge energy', the next collective movement and direction. No one can touch the true country and white light of inspiration for a false goal. You can't dive into the deep-down, belly place of pure creativity while peeking over your shoulder to monitor the preferences of strangers," advises Tama J. Kieves, a carrier coach and the author of This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love.




Effective Leadership as a Source of Competitive Business Advantage

Leadership is imperative for molding a group of people into a team, shaping them into a force that serves as a competitive business advantage.

Leaders also know how to balance the individual team member's quest with the goal of producing synergy an outcome that exceeds the sum of individual inputs. Leaders require that their team members forego the quest for personal best in concert with the team effort.

Super-leaders help each of their follower to develop into an effective self-leader by providing them with the behavioral and cognitive skills necessary to exercise self-leadership. Super-leaders establish values, model, encourage, reward, and in many other ways foster self-leadership in individuals, teams, and wider organizational cultures.

Creating an Inspiring Vision

A vision has two functions: directional and motivational. The main task of a leader is creating a clear and exciting vision for the future and communicating it in such a way that other eventually see the vision belonging to them and join the crusade.  

Take the time to think through and develop a clear picture of where you want the organization to be in the future, then communicate your vision in an inspiring and enduring way. Verbal communication is not enough however. You should live your vision and be seen living it.

Motivating through Communicating Your Strategic Focus

Motivation depends on having clear objectives. Since motivation is personal, aim to align staff's individual drives with the company's purposes in general and your unit's in particular.

"Most companies are filled with people who have no clue of the big picture what the organization is really trying to accomplish and because they don't feel that they or their contributions are important, they do their job... and nothing more, say Jason Jennings and Laurence Haughton. To unleash the power of your organization and achieve exceptional results, you must empower employees and motivate them to follow through on your strategic focus. Your business will be able to bring new products/services to the market much faster if "everyone within the organization had their heart and soul wrapped up in taking aim and shooting at the same target".
