Too often, part of our job is to motivate others to be their best, and this is much easier to do when we are a living example and have already figured out to draw the best out of ourselves. We then know what it takes.
In this practical, fascinating and inspiring talk, Nick shares his over 30-year experience of working with leaders and Self-leadership to help you understand how you draw the best put out of yourself, your strengths and gifts and talents. He then shares how you can use your best to draw the best of our others.
What you will learn from Nick’s presentation:
• How to learn to inspire, liberate and draw the best out of ourselves
• How to deal with the inevitable fear and resistance we will inevitably encounter
• How to understand the power and value of vulnerability in yourself
• How to then inspire the best in others
• The differences between inspiration and motivation and when to use both
• How to recognize and handle other people’s resistance
• How to encourage and celebrate talent rather than use control
• The amazing things that can happen as a result of drawing out the best in yourself and others
Since Nick left his corporate job to follow his calling, he has immersed himself in the world of ‘thought leadership’ initially in the areas of personal and spiritual growth, creative expression and inspired business and leadership. Through his involvement with Alternatives at Saint James’s in Piccadilly where he got to meet and host many of the leading voices on the planet. He then began to find his own voice and his own thought leadership through his own speaking, coaching and ultimately writing.
All his own ‘thought leadership’ has been born out of personal experience, struggles and triumphs about how he liberated his own best gifts and talents. He has pioneered in offering thought leadership in the key areas of work, success, power, inspiration, creativity, entrepreneurship, fear and now leadership, he has written about what he’s found has worked and not worked.
Each of his 14 books has been offering his contribution to thought leadership in these areas.
Nick has given hundreds of talks around the world, in seventeen countries, to varied and diverse groups including corporate and entrepreneurial, spiritual and inspiring audiences. His messages speak to the universal desire we each have to discover what we are on earth for, to lead ourselves to what we were born to do, who we were born to be and to fulfil our potential and then act as an inspiration to others. He speaks about self-leadership and the leadership of others.
Leading with inspiration is not just about having a position of power, you don’t need to be voted for, anointed or appointed to lead. It is the choice to show up, to not give in to our fears, to be generous, to be creative, to share what is meaningful to us. We can all lead with inspiration in any and every moment we choose to.
