9780002570312: The Tao of Motivation: Inspire Yourself and Others

A practical and entertaining book which demonstrates how to galvanize and enthuse oneself and others at work.

The subject of motivation has become highly topical: top managers have increasingly realized the importance of inspiring their staff, and a growing proportion of the work force now demands a more motivating environment in which to work.

Would you like to:

Motivate yourself – create a real vision of how you might succeed, and fulfil more of your own potential?

Get someone else motivated – so that you are recognized as a truly outstanding coach and confidence-builder, helping others to be greater than they thought possible, to ‘achieve wonderful things’?

Motivate someone to achieve a specific goal – ending up with fewer ‘awkward’ appraisal discussions with your staff, managers, and/or your children or partner?

If so, The Tao of Motivation will help you. It offers a few simple tools, tips and techniques which really work. Fun to read – full of succinct tips and practical examples, cartoons and illustrations, presented in an easily digestible, entertaining way. You will be able to see how a real-life manager develops as a motivating force within his team, within his business, and within his family. And, of course, you’ll see how the motivator of others first motivates him- or her-self.
