Challenging times! Spencer Brenneman Ring Leader Douglas Spencer checks in with some of his personal strategies for getting through them.
Hello, everyone! Douglas Spencer here with another weekly virtual check-in. As you may have noticed, it’s been a big week here. I re-arranged my office! Exciting stuff.
Seriously though, in addition to continually reaffirming my commitment to staying positive, I’ve been doing some interesting reading. For example, I recently finished “Drive, The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us” by Daniel H. Pink. OMG, we have been doing it ALL wrong for decades. This book is one of the best non-fiction books I’ve ever read. It explains why using extrinsic rewards is counterproductive and why intrinsic motivation is where we must focus. If you have employees, if you manage others, if you are managed, if you have children, you really should read this one. It’s fantastic.
What are you reading? Seriously. I want to know. We all want to know, so comment below.
All for now. Remember, stay positive. We will find our way. I promise.
