What Motivates Us At Work?

Posted on March 25, 2014 in Client Blog, Training Academy - 0 comments - 5

HR managers should abandon their simplistic view of the labor market of why people work. In fact, there’s a lot more at stake other than money according to research. People are actually more driven by meaningful work, by others’ acknowledgement and by the amount of effort we’ve put in: the harder the task is, the prouder we are. When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it: meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc. Look at the 7 interesting implications for what makes us feel good about our work here.

The Golden Circle: Know The “WHY”

Posted on March 19, 2014 in Client Blog, Training Academy - 0 comments - 6


Simon Sinek proposed the famous Golden Circle theory that revolutionized sales pitches, innovation and leadership. Ask yourself this, why is Apple so innovative? They are just like everyone else. They have the same access to the same talent, the same agencies, the same consultants, the same media. The only difference is that they sell the “WHY” in their products, because people buy “why” you do it, rather than your product itself.

Yet, most of the sales we do revolve around WHAT we do. We say how we are different or how we are better and we expect some sort of a behavior, a purchase, a vote, something like that. But it’s uninspiring. To tap into the urge of customers in purchasing your products, get them to buy in on WHY you created the product and the story behind it.
