SOL PODCST ART.ispx 300Many people talk about what motivates them, but no one explains what motivation actually is.

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading, I delve into the dynamics of motivation to understand how it works, and why. Some of the issues I discuss include:

 

  • Motivation is a natural force that manifests under the proper environmental conditions.
  • Motivation is a positive force. It’s opposite force is coercion and fear.
  • Motivation and coercion affect and our health.
  • Fear as a motivational strategy is doomed to fail over time.
  • Motivation is not a gimmick.
  • INPowered leaders must learn to use the natural energy of motivation more effectively.
