In this Training Unleashed podcast, host Evan Hackel interviewed Tony Martignetti, Chief Inspiration Officer at Inspired Purpose Coaching, trusted advisor and leadership coach. They discussed the critical role that inspiration plays in helping companies succeed.
Why We Need to Be Not Just Motivated, But Inspired
Inspiration is the tool that keeps leaders motivated. It is the fuel that helps us center on what Tony calls “Our soul’s purpose.”
How do we identify that fuel? Tony says it is as simple as identifying what “lights us up” in our lives and our companies.
How to Inspire Everyone in Our Organizations
Tony says one key is to identify what is inspiring the people we lead.
The clues to where that organization lies can often be found in the stories that people tell about achievements that make them proud. Those stories have a plotline that contains what Tony calls “flashpoints” – those moments that taught them lessons that they then brought back into the real world and used to create change.
The challenge, he states is to find meaning in those flashpoints and to use that meaning to inspire and move forward.
Why Everyone in an Organization Should be Inspired
It is important for the leader to be inspired. But that is not enough. Real change and growth will only occur when everyone in the organization becomes inspired. Getting that to happen is the leader’s greatest challenge.
“It starts by really connecting with people and understanding what’s driving them,” Tony explained to Evan. Getting that to happen begins when you consider what brought those people to your company.
“Everyone has their own things that they’re driven by,” Tony states. “But you have to start by painting them a picture and giving them a scene that shows why you are all there.”
