“This book really tries to
get to the bottom of what it’s all about, including
a bit of theory and a lot of practical tips, as well
as uplifting quotes to remind you that you’re
not the only person out there that finds being a manager
difficult.” IET Engineering Management
“This…is a must
for those responsible for the challenging task of motivating
others in the work place…Definitely a title worth
taking a peek at.” Niche Personal
and leadership guru, John Adair, argues that it is only
by understanding the needs that drive motivation that
you can really inspire your colleagues.”
What motivates people is an important
consideration for captains of industry, commerce and
the public sector – in fact anyone who works with
other people – since people are central to the
success of organizations.
Leadership and Motivation explores
the subject in depth. John Adair reassesses the theories
of Herzberg and Maslow – still the major contributors
to our understanding of motivation – in the context
of Action-Centred Leadership – the concept pioneered
and developed by the author.
Central to the book are the Fifty-Fifty
Rule and the Eight Key Principles of Motivating Others.
With the Fifty-Fifty Rule, Adair states that half of
a person’s motivation comes from within and half
is due to their environment – especially the leadership
they encounter there.
