Do you consider yourself an inspiration? Most of us don’t. But everybody has the capacity to inspire others to act and, in L&D, that’s basically part of the job!
In this episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Ross G and Owen are joined by author and adventurer Sue Stockdale, the first British woman to ski to the Magnetic North Pole. We discuss:
· Sue’s background and adventures
· How we as individuals can inspire and motivate others
· How to scale inspiration across an entire organization.
