Inspire and Influence

Build awareness

In this course we start from the following definition: leadership is consciously directing the behavior and inspiring others to jointly achieve the set goal.

This means, pay attention to:

  • Communication
  • Flexibility (letting go of paradigms and being open to new perspectives)
  • Listening (what is really listening?)
  • Inspire and motivate
  • Taking responsibility for everything you do
  • Self-awareness (what does it mean?)

In order to be a good leader it is necessary to know yourself, your own motives and qualities. 

To support you in your search, we have a video about a number of world’s leaders. Find below the inspirational video.

A lot of research has been done on leadership, the diversity of perspectives and theory is enormous. Still, there are a number of aspects that keep recurring. It’s all about behavior and attitude of the leader. Its impact on others.

  • What’s Leadership to you now? Who inspires you?
  • Who do you want to follow? Or who don’t you want to follow? Why?
  • What do other leaders and/or professionals/followers say about Leadership? Go on research, find current sources.
