9780006530954: The Tao of Motivation: Inspire Yourself and Others

A practical and entertaining book which demonstrates how to motivate and enthuse oneself and others in all fields of life.

The subject is highly topical: top managers now increasingly realize the importance of inspiring their staff, and a growing proportion of employees now demands a motivational environment at 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 ‘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. It’s fun to read, and full of practical examples, cartoons and illustrations, presented in an easily digestible, entertaining way.
