Inspirational Leadership

Back to Blog

Inspirational leadership is what this book is all about.  I have found another favorite author. Lance Secretan is a leadership maven and a heart guy. He dismantles the thought that leadership is only about financial metrics, making tough decisions and getting people to do stuff.

Instead, Lance proposes that leaders have heart, passion, values and are inspirational.  In fact, he would go so far as to say that leaders need to inspire others regularly.

Here are a few highlights from the book “The Spark, The Flame, The Torch”:

  • The greatest gift a leader can give his/her followers is to inspire them
  • People need to be developed and they are counting on you to do it
  • People will leave you if you do not take time to help them get to where they want to go
A couple of my favorite quotes:
“Success is not the key to happiness.  Happiness is the key to success.  If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” Albert Schweitzer
“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being” Carl Jung
“We are leaving what Time magazine called “The Decade from Hell,” and there is a yearning for a new beginning, an opportunity to create and enjoy a brighter future- A Decade of Meaning and Fulfillment”
It is time to create the decade of meaning and fulfillment for others.  America is counting on it.
