Overview

It drives us, inspires us, and compels us to reach for the most impossible of dreams. It is the key factor that separates ordinary people from the truly great leaders of our world. Motivation, however, can't be forced or faked. It is the responsibility of every great leader to create conditions that empower individuals and teams to get things done in ways that they find enriching and fulfilling. Once motivated, they become transformed; they want to achieve, they want to do well. Why? Because their work matters-to their boss, to their teams, and to themselves.

This remarkable new book by John Baldoni explores the many ways that motivation has worked for others-and how it can work for you. Through the incredible life stories of highly successful men and women, Great Motivation Secrets of Great Leaders draws its action-ready principles from real-world examples. These leaders are an eclectic mix from different walks of life and different moments in time. There is a unifying theme; each knew, or knows, how to create conditions for people to motivate themselves. Some like Ernest Shackleton and Magic Johnson are outgoing men of action; others like Crazy Horse are soft-spoken role models. Thich Nhat Hanh, Frances Hesselbein and David Hackworth are eloquent communicators and outstanding manager-leaders. Pat Summitt and Colleen Barrett are coaches, one of college basketball, the other of Southwest Airlines. Mary Kay Ash and Sam Walton are successful entrepreneurs, as are Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig. Each possesses a unique style that draws people in. People want to participate in whatever the leader is doing, whether it's playing a sport, running a business, or exploring uncharted territory. And each of these leaders has an inspirational story to tell-and important lessons for us all.

Great Motivation Secrets of Great Leaders is truly a book of inspiration, one that will motivate you to motivate others-and make your dreams come true.
