Have you’ve reached a limit in your work or you feel that something is missing but you can’t pinpoint what it is? You’re not alone.
Engagement and motivation in the workplace are both complex concepts, in fact, they are so complicated that only 30% of employees have been engaged at work during the past 18 years.
One of the biggest misconceptions about motivation is that it’s possible to motivate people. It is not. Managers can’t motivate their people, teachers can’t motivate their students, and parents can’t motivate their children. You can’t motivate anyone. Or rather, not in the way you might think. We can guide people, inspire them, teach them; we can even give them a boost, in the short-term, but not truly motivate them in the long run. There is only one person that can; ourselves.
