As leaders we all want our team members to become rock stars. But how exactly do we motivate them to give their best at work?

Unfortunately we all to often look for the answers in the wrong places when we think about pay increases and other forms of extrinsic recognition.

Instead, what we first need to do is to better understand the psychology of motivation and I know of no better tool for this than the good old "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs".

In this video I'll help you understand the two different types of motivation and what you can do to have a team that will want to go anywhere with you.

Would love to hear what you think in the comments below!

Spending upwards of 5h producing each high quality episode sadly turned out to be unsustainable for us and we have put this series on ice for now.

You can still find links to all previous 65 episodes here or join the conversation on the eXuviate Network.
