Amplifiers: The Power of Motivational Leadership to Inspire and Influence

Great leaders motivate, exceptional leaders inspire and transformational leaders amplify

Leaders today need to go ‘old-school’ – they need to get back to those original base actions of meeting, talking and inspiring the people around them. They need to get out from behind their strategy and bring leadership to life.

In a media-dominated social-networked world, leaders can no longer lead from behind a desk or strategy. They need do much more than just make decisions; they need to inspire those around them to excellence and form the vital link between strategy and execution.

In Amplifiers, Australia’s foremost authority on Thought Leadership, Matt Church, explains how great leaders use the art and practice of motivational leadership to light the path to success and inspire others to take that journey with them. Amplifiers are the masters of maximising human potential and developing other great leaders.

According to Church, “motivational leadership is not a ‘nice to do’: it’s a necessity, and one that becomes increasingly needed as we move further into the technological age where we find ourselves time poor and information rich. We need leaders who can take this data deluge and provide meaning, engagement and relevance around all the stuff that matters.”

Using lessons from leaders as Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill, Bobby Kennedy, and Barack Obama, Church explains how great leaders use the art and practice of motivational leadership to light the path to success and inspire others to take that journey with them. Likewise, readers will also learn how successful companies such as Apple and Nike have discovered and profited from the power of motivational leadership.

In Amplifiers, Church guides readers through the essential skills and strategies of motivational leadership, from effective communication frameworks and roles to proven guidance on choosing high-impact words when speaking to others.

Great leaders aren't born; they're made. For anyone who leads people, motivational leadership is the key to turning strategy into success. Read Amplifiers and boost your leadership skills to a higher level.
