Successful companies generally tend to possess employees who are not only engaged but also inspired towards achieving the goals set. Thus a research programme was set up by management consulting giant Bain & Co. to understand the factors that make up for an inspiring leader. While thirty three traits have been identified which make up for an inspiring leader, these can broadly be divided into four areas. These are – team leadership, tone setting, connect with internal and external members, and developing inner resources. Ultimately, a leader is marked by how much the organization overall creates value. Inspirational leaders tend to be spiky, in terms of possessing more of some attributes than others. Innovative methods need to be adopted so that employees respond differently. Paul O’Neil of Alcoa, Howard Schultz at Starbucks and Alan Mulally of Ford are examples of leaders who were able to inspire their cadres to go beyond and create value.

There are certain blunders that newly minted executives tend to commit. This after companies spend a lot of time and effort in identifying their new C-Suite members. One such is to frame a fresh corporate strategy immediately on setting foot. Another is the urge to speed up decision making and end up doing that in haste. Another blunder is to reminisce about how things were doing at his/her previous workplace. Being a CEO often involves being constantly surrounded by external players such as media or customer forums. A mistake many commit is to prioritize these relationships over internal ones. One blunder a CEO can certainly do without is to go solo.
