When your success depends upon the performance of others, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! As Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul says, There is no success more rewarding than that generated by highly motivated individuals who come together as a team. Lew Losoncy delivers a blueprint for success that evry company or organization—large or small—can make their own. If you are highly motivated yourself but find that your success in life—at work—wherever— depends upon the motivation of other people, Dr. Lew has the straight forward formula you need to implement. Here are practical approaches that can motive people immediately—even if you are extremely busy. One of the key elements to successful motivation is positive encouragement—as opposed to the standard pushing done by most managers. If you would like to go beyond stimulating others through the standard fiancial motivators, this book has the answers you need. Take the lead in motivating others from the man who has motivated hundreds of thousands of people toward success.

Build a positive, productive team using this leading psychologist's winning approaches. Turn problems into progress, with specific motivational strategies. Are you dealing with apathy? Resistance to change? Communication problems? Cynicism? Violence? Low self-esteem? If you are a team leader struggling for answers to these specific problems, look no further than this book.
