Looking for inspiration: 7 simple ways to find inspiration at work
Most leaders waste a lot of time trying to inspire and motivate their employees. The ability to encourage and increase motivation is a very important skill that is especially needed at the modern pace of life.
But how much time do we, as leaders, give to finding the inspiration, which we also often need? If we are not able to activate our own inner strength and enthusiasm that fuels our creative potential, how can we help others in this?
We have considered the experience of leaders from different areas of activity and highlighted main ideas. There are many ways in which we can find inspiration at work. And here are 7 to get you started:
1. Analyze yourself
The first thing to do is to find the time to think about yourself and your role as a leader. It sounds simple, but often we are overwhelmed with meetings, problems, and to-do lists. Spending time on yourself may seem like a selfish act, but this action is very important if you want to be a successful leader. It will also give you the opportunity to think about the challenges ahead.

If you manage to concentrate on the things that you like best, your own spirit will not keep you waiting for a long time with the reaction.
