Last week, we asked: Where do you most frequently turn for leadership inspiration?
- Books about leadership: 38%
- Business leaders/executives from other companies: 27%
- Leaders in my organization: 19%
- Public figures (sports, politics, academia): 8%
- My team: 8%
More than two-thirds of you are looking outside your company for leadership inspiration. Authors or prominent executives can help you find inspiration and teach leadership techniques. You must realize your team might look outside for inspiration as well. Think about what you can do as its leader to serve as inspiration within your organization.
