What makes a leader inspirational?
When we evaluate what it takes to be a leader, we look at their contributions. But to be inspirational, we look at the depth of experience they bring to the table and how those experiences influence their decisions.
Inspirational leaders have been shaped by learnings throughout their career with influences from various jobs, mentors, and personal lessons that can sometimes go undisclosed. We hear grand stories of rising from failure, seeking the guidance of mentors, and the general motivations behind a leader’s ambition and drive.
