A top business consultant and speaker lights the path to a positive, productive work environment What do the best leaders do to achieve greatness in the modern workplace that is muddled by fear, pressure for productivity, overwork? Inspire! offers business leaders a clear vision of what a positive, productive, inspiring organization looks like in these challenging and chaotic times, and how to get there. The key to extraordinary long--term performance lies in a transformational commitment to inspiring people rather than motivating them. Lance Secretan's Higher Ground Leadership concepts have been widely used to increase profits and quality, slash staff turnover, and achieve record organizational and personal performance. Inspire! describes Lance's breakthrough thinking, often in the words of the pace--setting leaders who are implementing them and building legacies. Countless examples, stories, and case studies demonstrate the magic of these brilliant ideas.

Six essential values form the foundation of positive, productive, and profitable organizations and a meaningful and fulfilling life--courage to begin the transformation; authenticity that lets people contribute all of themselves and excel; service that fosters a spirit of cooperation; truth--telling that builds trust and loyalty; love for others that leads to inspired results; and effectiveness, the attainment of results. Inspire! shows leaders in any organization how to foster these essential values that lead to personal and organizational greatness. Lance Secretan (Alton, Ontario, Canada) is one of the world's foremost thinkers on self--improvement and leadership. He is an author, award--winning columnist, philosopher, corporate coach, and a renowned public speaker and business consultant. He served as chairman of the Advisory Board of the 1997 Special Olympics World Winter Games and is also a former ambassador to the United Nations Environment Program.


We all yearn to be inspired. Yet today, many people are drifting in organizations, teams, and families that operate from a place of fear. Within the hearts of people everywhere, there is a yearning for something different. We are looking inward and outward, and we are asking questions. Some of the answers are timeless-the world's greatest leaders have known them all along.
From Mahatma Gandhi and Thomas Jefferson to Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and other great contemporary leaders-one attribute has been shared: they aimed not to motivate, but to inspire. What are the unique qualities found in these leaders? And how can you apply their style of leadership to your business? Inspire! has the answers.
Inspire! is a book about how to inspire others and ourselves, the requisite for personal and organizational transformation. Based on a lifetime of research, Lance Secretan takes us on a compelling journey to discover what all great, inspiring leaders have known: their Destiny (Why I am here on Earth), their Cause (How I will be while I am here and what I will stand for), and their Calling (What I will do and how I will use my talents and gifts to serve). He shows us clearly, using concrete examples of successful leaders he has worked with, how we can do it, too.
Inspire! introduces a breakthrough leadership practice that leaps past conventional theory by defining a deeper, more enriching kind of leadership that is precisely relevant to our times. Secretan reveals seven essentials of authentic, truthful leadership that inspire everyone and lead to extraordinary personal and organizational effectiveness.
The central idea of contemporary leadership theory is that manipulating, exploiting, and controlling the behavior of others is both useful and acceptable. But this is leadership based on fear and motivation. Higher Ground Leadership suggests we can inspire people by appealing to their hearts and souls. By engaging people on a new level-by honoring, exciting, and nourishing their souls-we can give them more than a reason to work; we can give them a passion for work.
Secretan shows that we can create more productive, fulfilling workplaces that encourage engagement and contribution from employees. We can build workplaces, governments, and countries based on shared best interest and selflessness, rather than self-interest and cynicism. This is the way forward for leaders in every situation who seek to inspire others. Inspire! offers a proven framework for putting passion and meaning back into work-and therefore the world.
Inspire! will stir you to ask brave and important questions. It will transform and inspire you, and therefore others.

HASH(0x956bb36c) von 5 Sternen What leadership is all about 6. September 2008
Von Monty Rainey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is the first thing I have ever read by this author, but INSPIRE: WHAT GREAT LEADERS DO by Lance Secretan will not be the last. This is leadership for the 21st century.

I learned some new terminology here, such as "higher ground leadership" (leading by serving) and "old story leaders" (Jack Welch types who rule with an iron fist and focus solely on the bottom line).

Much of the focus here is on expanding the mission statement. By that I mean, Secretan teaches creating 3 separate statements; destiny, cause and calling. Call it what you want, but the truth is, we all need something to guide us and maintain our focus. As Yogi Berra said, "If you don't know where you're going, you'll end up someplace else."

I particularly liked the content here about how convoluted and unproductive (and uninspiring) corporate mission statements tend to be. They are all pretty much the same; main focus being a few patronizing remarks to attract shareholders, a quick statement about teamwork, and just for good measure, something about how important our customers are. There's just not a lot there to inspire anyone. I have long maintained, if your corporate mission focuses on building customer loyalty, your employees will perform better, your NOI will go up and your shareholders will be happy. Use your financial statements and analytical tools to attract shareholders, not your mission statement.

Anyone would benefit and learn from this magnificent work, but CEO's in particular. Unfortunately, the smattering of existential eastern philosophy will turn off many CEO's. Let that be their loss, not yours. Read this book.

HASH(0x957ada68) von 5 Sternen Great Coaching Resource 17. August 2004
Von LaVonne Boyd, Business Coach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought the book several weeks ago after coming across your web site and boy is it powerful. I am a business coach and am beginning to use your book as a reference for my clients. I particularly like it because I take people through a process that leads them to their purpose and now of course we talk about not only their values but what they stand for(their principles) and how they "are" their purpose, and then what they will do. They love your web site and book. So thank you very much.

HASH(0x957af9cc) von 5 Sternen Secretan inspires! 7. Mai 2004
Von Mike Carter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Understanding the difference between "motivation" and "inspiration" can lead to a dramatic breakthrough for anyone in any kind of leadership role. After reading Secretan's beautiful, yet practical book on the subject, I know I'll never be the same. Despite all the training, seminars, mentoring, and observation of great leaders, I didn't know the difference and I suspect most CEO's don't either.
It turns out motivation is usually based on fear and is self centred. Inspiration is other centred and based on love.
I read the book on the suggestion of a very successful CEO I work with and immediately began to notice the impact Secretan has had on his leadership style, and effectiveness.
I'm now looking forward to similar results.
If you are in any kind of leadership role, or aspire to be, read this book.

Von Jim Hornickel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Within 5 pages of beginning my reading of "Inspire...", I was enthralled. Lance writes so eloquently and powerfully of a way of being in corporate life (and life in general) and how each of us can impact positive change as leaders in our individualized way. Want to make a greater difference in your life's circle? Read, read, read this book!

HASH(0x957bb324) von 5 Sternen The Body as a Corporatopn 19. Juli 2004
Von Lynne McCarthy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Tremendous book, I was overwhelmed ( in a wonderful way) by the way the words spoke so directly to my heart and soul. The frequency relationship was direct. I have read the book three times and still feel an energetic response when I think of the applicability to everything that I do. Although Lance is referring to the business or corporate entity, I see the human being as its own grand corporation, with departments/divisions in the respiratory, circulatory, endocrine, skeletal etc. departments. The human being as the microcosm, actually the atom within every cell of the body being the microcosm to the human body, with the family unit, however it is defined to the next step outward. The family unit is the microcosm to the extended family and friends community, this community is the microcosm to the geographic community. The ultimate macrocosm being the universe. All of these aspects of the corporation ( the body) need higher ground leadership. Each cell in our body has a destiny, cause and calling, each grouping of cells, say for example the muscular system has a destiny, cause and calling. All these need to be in alignment with the grander destiny, cause and calling of the person. This is how we actually align and achieve happiness, health and grace in life.
The second and third reading were much more self analytical and I was so inspired by Lance's ability to articulate the meaning and purpose of life. I could go on and on here, I feel this in every cell of my body.
