As a leadership coach in conversations with top executives, I’ve heard the stories for a decade. I’ve listened to leaders describe the people who’ve shaped and inspired them. I’ve heard the deep impact across their lives, and seen the energy and momentum carried from those experiences. We’ve all had conversations that landed just right, ones that carry forward in our minds and in our actions. They’ve made us who we are today.

I began wondering: how do we get more of this inspiration in our lives? In our workplaces? Communities? Homes?

I embarked on years of research and here’s what I discovered: we’re inspired by a set of behaviors that every one of us already knows how to do. We simply need to do them in certain, specific ways.

I wrote The Inspiration Code to unlock this hard-to-grasp notion of inspiration and bring it down to a practical level all of us can bring to others. It’s a primer for building an enthusiastically engaged workforce, motivating anyone, and making sure we bring inspiration into our own lives as well.

I hope it lands just right.
