Leaders are expected to make smart decisions and take action under pressure. Many try to do what seems rational. They take motivated action–doing whatever they need to do to achieve deadlines and achieve their goals.
But sometimes leaders need to get out of their heads and listen to their own intuition.
It takes inspired action.
Gayle Lantz talks about inspired action and why it is important for leaders to practice.
She argues inspired action aligns more with who you are and what you care about.
It allows you to plant seeds for new ideas to grow. The experience can be fun and energizing.
Leaders who take inspired action open new possibilities that would otherwise be more limited if applying logic alone.
Taking inspired action requires listening more to your own voice, trusting your instincts and paying more attention to inklings–even when they may not seem logical.
It enables the leader to leverage more of their full capabilities, imagination and expand their potential.
