"Dare to Inspire shows how to spark and sustain exponential growth." (Shawn Achor, New York Times best-selling author of Big Potential and The Happiness Advantage)
Inspiration is a most critical resource to be managed in modern work.
The problem is that the power of inspiration often feels fleeting. But what if you could design your own way to be inspired at work on a regular basis? What if you could make your own inspiration last?
Rooted in 18 engines of inspiration that emerged from interviews with leaders across different industries, Dare to Inspire shows how to supercharge inspiration for yourself, your team, and your organization. Each chapter offers tools, strategies, and examples of how to make inspiration happen and last.
Through stories of pioneers in business, health, education, and other industries, listeners learn how to effectively use the engines to spark inspiration, along with specific practices to sustain it. Dare to Inspire features Chef Wes Avila, the founder of LA sensation Guerrilla Tacos, who was inspired to revolutionize his industry; crowdfunding pioneer Charles Best, who founded DonorsChoose to meet the challenge of connecting teachers in need with donors interested in supporting educational programs; and many others. This will be a vital book for anyone interested in creativity, success, achievement, and happiness.

The authors show you how to spot it, grow it, and sustain it to fuel your own creativity and motivation, and that of your team or organization." (Margaret H.

"People hope for success, but they crave inspiration; the problem has always been in knowing how to find it - Holzer, Spataro, and Grace Baron show us how. Reading Dare to Inspire, half the time I had a lump in my throat, the other half a fire in my gut." (Brigadier General Thomas A. Kolditz, PhD, founding director, Ann and John Doerr Institute for New Leaders Rice University and founding director, West Point Leadership Center, US Military Academy)

Inspiring and enjoyable!
I listened to this whole book on the day it came out. It’s delightful, practical, and inspiring. A great reminder about some things I think I know but haven’t been doing, plus lots of new ideas to try, and many stories to enjoy and be inspired by. Love how the authors combine business, history, and activism examples, supported by science and their professional experience.
Theirs is a holistic leadership model that considers your mind, body, and spirit. And goes way beyond the goals of satisfaction or engagement.
