(Guest Leader Post) The Actual Value of Motivation and Engagement in the Workplace

Today’s Guest Leader Post contributor is Jim Bouchard (http://jimbouchard.org/)

In his seminal book Good To Great, author Jim Collins made the assertion that “if you have the right people on your bus, you don’t need to worry about motivating them. The right people are self-motivated.”

So here is the question . . . if you get the right people on the bus in terms of hiring the “right people” from the get go, does the concept of management motivating employees to achieve their highest work potential fly out the window?

As we ponder this question, I am pleased to share with you by way of the SlideShare Viewer below a copy of Think Like A Black Belt author Jim Bouchard’s popular white paper The Actual Value of Motivation and Engagement in the Workplace.

Remember to share your thoughts regarding the question on motivation in the comment section below, as well as tune in to the March 29th Remarkable Leaders Radio Show, when I will be interviewing Jim on the key highlights from his paper.
