How Do You Individually Package Inspiration? (Market To Your Audience)

Individually Wrapped Inspiration

We have determined that Eye Cubed companies have folks with many different strengths, qualities and talents.  What has to happen to maximize your team’s capabilities is to create and sustain a culture with an open forum where your team members have an opportunity to:

  1.  Think, Speak and Be Heard

Since you’ve hired Eye-Cubed TALENT, you have to be ready to deal with the range of output, ideas and energy that goes along with them.  The output will vary greatly primarily due to the individuals on your team who come with their own personal history coupled with an individualized inspirational trigger-point.  Let us explore how to package the inspiration needed in each case:

Self-Motivated Inspiration.

We have those leaders who self-inspire and need very little outside influence.  Their personal development has been fostered living in households where parents had high expectations for their success.   They were forced to forge their own paths and in so doing they became independent and creative problem solvers.   They will anticipate problems and come up with solutions.   Leaders who are self-motivated need an opportunity to be heard on a solo platform.  To get the most out of their innate ability, they have to feel appreciated and need recognition.  Their inspiration is global.

Group Oriented Inspiration.

Here is where you find your Eye-Cubed team member who manages the highest performing teams.   There is no need for you to individually recognize them as they are satisfied when their team or group succeeds.  They are used to working through family challenges as a team made up of supportive members with common goals.   To get the most out of their inspirational ideas, they require time to meet and work together.   They need a clear expression of the problem and then an opportunity to develop solutions together.   They do not mind allowing other leader to take the spotlight.  They are most satisfied when their team exceeds expectations.  Their inspiration is goal oriented.

Role Model Driven Inspiration. 

Every day many of your team members will be working on their own self-development.  They reach for personal fulfillment based on the success and achievement modeled by others.   These are independent workers who are given a task and run with the ball to the finish line.   They follow their role models and are, in turn, inspired to accomplish individual greatness.   These leaders need strong mentors and a culture where personal growth is encouraged.   At home they were inspired by powerful role models.  Their inspiration comes from personal achievement and is self oriented.

Your task as an Eye-Cubed Leader is to identify the inspirational style of your team members and provide an atmosphere where each of these uniquely packaged styles can thrive.  Allow each one to THINK in their own style.   Provide a forum for them to SPEAK and be respected.  And let them know they have been HEARD by acknowledging their ideas.  The ideal culture will allow the diversity within your company to be your market differentiator and bring you an unstoppable competitive advantage.

In addition to the consistent Inspiration that will drive your corporate initiatives, Inspiration is needed at every strategic inflection point.  At the most critical points in time, your Eye-Cubed team must come up with the most innovative solutions to get things done.   Solving similar problems the same way over and over again causes redundancy and guarantees the same or degrading results.   Henry Ford said it best: “If I’d asked people what they wanted, they would have asked for better horses.”  Let your leaders and team members feel the satisfaction,  energy and innovation that grows with Inspiration that permeates throughout your organization.
