What is Engaging Intrinsic Motivation?
This competency focuses on the importance of gaining energy from our personal values and commitments - instead of being driven by forces that are external to us.
“Engaging Intrinsic Motivation helps you develop and use lasting inner drivers,” Six Seconds notes. “This allows you to stand up, challenge the status quo, take risks, and persevere when the going is tough – and it helps you inspire that in others”
This session covers:
what Engaging Intrinsic Motivation is in relation to your EQ,
why it’s important for you as an individual, a leader, and an organization,
