Inspiring Leaders: Start Your Next Meeting With This Question

Inspiring Leaders: Start Your Next Meeting With This Question

Inspiring leaders all start with this question

“We become the stories we tell,” Elie Wiesel. Inspiring leaders starts by telling a story.

What are the stories you’re telling in your workplace over and over again?
Are the stories inspiring people?
Are the stories positive and optimistic with a 5:1 ratio (positive to negative)?

Inspiring leaders take the time to assess themselves and learn as much as they possibly can.

One of the greatest service hotel chains that has ever existed, The Ritz-Carlton has a
noble purpose.

The Ritz-Carlton’s brand is about…

“ladies and gentlemen, serving ladies and gentlemen”

This big idea is an inspiring calling for their people and their customers.

For the people who work for The Ritz-Carlton, their roles have a higher purpose that
goes beyond the task.

In the spirit of keeping this story core to their day-to-day, inspiring leaders begin every meeting with a powerful question that inspires people on every shift, every day to see the higher
purpose in their work.

Inspire your people to see the higher purpose of their work.

Start your meetings with this question =>”In the last 24 hours, how did we make a difference in the last 24 hours?”

In this video, I talk about the importance of inspiring you people to see the difference
they can make.

I’d like to hear from you, what inspiring questions do you ask in your meetings to bring
people back to the higher purpose of their work? What do you look for in inspiring leaders?
