Best-practices leadership: Show enthusiasm

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers,Management Training

The best way to cultivate passion in your employees is to exude it yourself. If you love what you’re doing and express your enthusiasm, others will follow your lead.

“The secret of success is to stay in love,” says U.S. Army Major Gen. John H. Stanford, a highly decorated veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars who is now a public school administrator.

“Staying in love gives you the fire to ignite other people … to have greater desire to get things done than other people,” Stanford says.

Let your team see your excitement about the goals you set for them and for yourself. They will appreciate your commitment and feel more responsible for their contribution.
