How do you inspire people to take action toward a shared goal? To answer that question, we welcome back Terry Pearce, author of Leading Out Loud: A Guide for Engaging Others in Creating the Future. This is the bestselling guide to authentic leadership communication, and the newest edition of this book hit bookstores earlier this year. Terry had many years of experience at IBM and Charles Schwab, he’s taught leadership communication courses at Berkley and the London Business School, and for the last couple of decades has been coaching and consulting with CEOs and elected leaders.
Jesse and Terry discuss ways in which you as a leader can inspire and engage the people around you to work towards goals that you have set for the future.
One specific tool they discuss is a written Personal Leadership Communication Guide, which help you lead a change effort with greater clarity and passion. The basic components of a Personal Leadership Communication Guide are:
- Building Trustworthiness
- Creating Shared Context
- Describing the Future
- Committing to Action.
