Welcome to the October 2004 edition of Key Inspirations Internet Learning Service with Kevin Asbjornson, MIM, executive educator, international keynote inspirational speaker and international recording artist. Thank you for subscribing!

Key Inspiration for the Day: Leaders inspire people. People motivate themselves. One of the misconceptions about leadership is that among its chief aims ought to be the motivation of others. But the fact is people are inherently motivated by natural human desire for growth, accomplishment, fulfillment and economic necessity. What they need is inspiration that fires their imagination, which triggers innovation. This is one of the Eight Keys to Inspired Leadership covered in Kevin's groundbreaking executive education experience, Artistry of Leadership - Creating Meaningful Connections®.

You can get an idea of what it is like to experience Artistry of Leadership by reading a PDF article reprint, enhanced with some excellent new photography, originally published by the Banff Centre - Leadership Development. To read the article, click here.

"Music is omnipresent in our lives because it plays an integral role in many aspects of our every-day experience. This new application is an example of out-of-the-box thinking that is typical of the Taiwanese."
