S:1114 Quote: Inspire

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“If you want to build a ship,
don’t drum up people to collect wood
and don’t assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 

Coaching Point: Teaching is good.

Lecturing has its place.

Requiring is called for sometimes.

Ah, but inspiring discovers places and resources in people which even they don’t know they have.

To be an inspirer of others is a worthy endeavor, a secret strength of great and effective leaders.

Where do you look for inspiration for yourself?
