What motivates you?
Do you know what motivates you?
Or, to put it another way, “What inspires you to get you up in the morning?”
What if I told you there is an assessment that could reveal that for you? There is! It is described in the newly released book, The Motivation Code: Discover the Hidden Forces That Drive Your Best Work, written by Todd Henry, with Rod Penner, Todd W. Hall, Ph.D. and Joshua Miller, Ph.D. Its premise is we all can thrive in life and work when we are operating out of our core motivations.
I completed the assessment several years ago and discovered my core motivations are to Experience the Ideal, Be Central, and Be Unique. The results affirmed my need to be in a critical leadership role where I could shape the vision and direction of an organization–not just carry out the plans and policies of others. To quote a line from the musical Hamilton, I need to not only be “in the room where it happens,” but I want to make it happen! After ten years as an Executive Pastor of Operations in a mega-church, I returned to my role as President of ChurchHealth, a non-profit organization I founded 25 years ago. Once again, I am engaged in activities that drive me rather than drain me.
I look forward to helping you “discover the hidden forces that drive your best work!”
