How do you inspire someone? I’m not sure there’s a perfect answer but here are my thoughts:
- Don’t dictate: suggest a path for them to follow.
- Don’t offer false praise: recognize and reward them when deserved.
- Don’t duck tough talks: help them course-correct and improve.
- Don’t micro-manage: give latitude within boundaries and let them own their work.
- Don’t take credit: let everyone know who deserves credit when they succeed.
