My experience as a leader and a coach tells me that there is a kaleidoscope of motivations out there. Each of us has a different mix, and the kaleidoscope is twisted by circumstances including my boss's behaviour. As a leader I don't assume individuals or teams are motivated consistently by similar contexts. An 'I believe in you' moment may work for some but it does not work for everyone.
This is a living collection of resources on Motivation & Engagement that support my Leadership and Strategic HR programs, and that I curate for my Coaching clients.
No one does anything from a single motive - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
