Aug 28, 2019

How do you actually APPLY what Maslow tells us, that helps us rise towards the top of the pyramid and live more satisfied lives?

GBD73 What REALLY Motivates Today’s Professionals and Tomorrow’s Leaders? Our guest has been researching leadership and motivation for the last twenty years and has turned this into several books. This research also powers the presentations she gives to business leaders, finance and accounting professionals at conferences across the world. While interviewing world-class performers from business, science, the arts and sport, she identified five new intrinsic motivation types that reveal how ordinary people tap into their deepest internal motivations and achieve extraordinary things. She tells AICPA & CIMA's Kyle Hannan about why existing - and future - leaders do what they do, and the ideas and tools we can all use to reach our full potential in a changing business environment.
