“Passion and Authenticity are rare. Possessing both is required before expecting it of others”

Managers desire employees that are passionate go-getters.  The issue is typically in how they approach this goal.   Every change we attempt to make in business has to be sold, and just like customers, team members only “buy” if they believe in the product/service, and the company behind it.   The first goal should be to transition from a Manager to a Leader and start with self-reflection.   You must sell yourself before others can be sold.  The effort is not as daunting when you are totally authentic and passionate about the organizations objectives.  It becomes contagious and something that others naturally want to emulate.   And if there is some reason that a manager/leader is having a hard time becoming passionate about the objective, then there is something fundamentally flawed that has to be fixed immediately.
