Optimal Motivation maintains that a person is always motivated—it is the type of motivation that makes a difference. What matters is not how much motivation a person has, but the quality of motivation that is experienced. Optimal Motivation is grounded in a powerful assumption: Motivation is a skill. Motivation can be taught, learned, developed, and nurtured. Optimal Motivation leverages leaders’ natural desire to achieve meaningful goals, craft solutions to problems, be competent in seizing opportunities, and build a strong caring, and supportive organizational community and culture.
