Have you ever been sucked into a power struggle?
Do you wonder why leading your co-workers and friends is so different from leading your spouse and your kids?
Have you bought book after book chock full of clever advice that works only for a while?
This Motivation Hacks Video Course busts three leadership myths that the most popular advice is based on:
The Machiavellian Myth
Leaders can motivate their followers via charisma and/or coercion.
The Skinner Box Myth
Leaders can motivate their followers via rewards and punishments.
The Invisible Hand Myth
Leaders can motivate their followers via clever arrangement of incentives.
Using these myths may get you short-term compliance, but also long-term resentment or worse. Manipulation and incentivization can backfire, but with a proper scientific understanding of motivation you can learn when and how to deploy them to good effect. But, more importantly, you can learn how to avoid them in the first place.
