Do you remember a time when someone believed in you so much that you were almost fearless in participating in an activity?
Coming from someone whom you respect and trust, that belief can do wonders. Every time I got trusted to do a project or take on a challenge, I got that extra motivation to deliver and not disappoint. The fact that someone trusts you to take on a project or work is a feat in itself. Leaders know that words and behavior have to go hand in hand to motivate and inspire the team. Do you trust your teammates when the game is on the line or would you rather take that shot yourself?
It’s only right that as a leader, you should use your judgement to inspire your team and believe in them to do what is needed. Be ready to be amazed when you have done that.
