Create and Inspire a Winning Team

Learn about the 6 magical steps that energize individuals to pursue their best performance. Winning Teams are made of motivated people choosing to be incredible. Motivation comes from two places-Intrinsic (which comes from within) or extrinsic (external forces). Many leaders rely on incentives, penalties and other extrinsic motivation...but these incentives only go so far. The best leaders understand that to build a truly winning culture, you need to create intrinsic motivation.
