True leaders have the innate ability to motivate staff to achieve better results. Leading with a passion is what separates great leaders from the “wannabees.” Some people come to work every day, do their job and then go home. Their heart isn’t really in it, but they need the money, so they see their job simply as a means to an end — money. So how do you inspire your team to deliver superior results?

As I have previously discussed in Creating a Customer Experience that Drives Results, “Successful companies create desirable customer experiences by focusing on emotional connectors.
