    ♬  You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
    I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
    You raise me up… To more than I can be…♬

    Music by Secret Garden‘s Rolf Løvland and the lyrics byBrendan Graham, recorded by Josh Groban.

    This is a guest post from Beth Flynn’s Leadership Moments newsletter at the OSU Leadership Center. It speaks to how we can lift up others in our workplace and in so doing, uplift ourselves.

    Make it unfashionable to be a downer.  Inspiration doesn’t survive in an energy-sapping context.  This doesn’t mean that tough realities are denied and not faced.

    The electrifier always has a positive spin on a setback.  After all, inspiration stems from our spirit and our inner spirit is stronger than our outer circumstances.  Earlier we defined our spirit as our unlimited resource that transcends, and adds strength to our weary physical bodies and fragile psychological egos.  When our bodies and minds are down, an insight from our spirits gives us the jolt!

    The first way of energizing our work environment is by inspiring the development of a culture of people who are filled with energy, hope and positive motivation.  Each person moves from the highest part of his or her mind, heart, and spirit (Losoncy & Walsh, 2011, p. 82).
