  • #67 What Motivates People, with Helle Bundgaard

    The Hierarchy of Motivationenergy, needs, talents and purpose - identifies what motivates your behavior. It charts your ability to stay motivated, incorporate new learning and manage change. This grows proportionally with your ability to handle each level of the hierarchy.

    To improve your motivation capabilities: Get rid of your energy drainers. Approximately 80% of what drains your energy has to do with external factors such as others' behavior, decisions made by others, or circumstantial limitations.

    What really motivates you at work, engagement, and ultimately your success, rests on your ability to identify your energy drainers, and to generate options and actions to get rid of them.

    How can you know what motivates your team so it operates at a high-performing level?

    To improve your intrinsic motivation: Leverage your talents

    Your ability to acquire new competencies and maintain motivation depends on how effective you are at leveraging your personal talents.
