Dale Carnegie wrote the book, “How to win friends and influence people.” In the book, he has nine principles that will make you a more effective leader. It can be a helpful guide to inspiring change in others. First, begin with praise and honest appreciation followed by calling people's mistakes indirectly. Talk about your mistakes before you judge someone else's. Ask questions instead of giving orders. Let the other person save face.

Praise improvement. Give the person a standard to which they live up and use encouragement. Make faults easier to correct and make the other person happy by doing the thing you suggest. The core idea of the book is that you can change other people's behavior by changing your own.
