This episode of How To Take The Lead is focused on motivation. As leaders we often have the role of motivating others and we wanted to take the opportunity to explore how we ourselves stay motivated in our leadership roles. Did you know that 75% of people are motivated by knowing what they don’t want? So motivation is an important part of life as a leader.

In this episode we share our thoughts, experiences and learning, including:

  • 4:05 – understanding your ‘love’ language 
  • 7:41 – motivation linked to your purpose and needs
  • 15:03 – staying motivated when you’ve been in post for some time
  • 24:10 – leadership and organisational life cycles
  • 28:00 – How to ... motivate the motivator

Our top tips in this episode include working out if you are struggling with a motivation or ability issue, gaining clarity on what motivates you and ensuring you are considering your impact on others and their motivations.
