Motivating others. How to inspire others into action

There are three basic emotions of motivation:

  • Desire can be a motivator
  • Fear can be a motivator

Fear and anger results in the loss of the team’s commitment.

Try to motivate by using an optimistic vision and a keen desire for a better future.

This is inspirational leadership.

Summary

Action Planning and Close

The content was absolutely as indicated in the overview and more. It has helped me crystalize my thoughts and understand how to be a better manager. The trainer's presentation was particularly good in that Chris used his own experiences to relate the subject matter. This helped me apply the logic in a 'real life' situation.
