    in Business

    Why Motivating People Doesn't Work . . . and What Does by Susan Fowler

    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Susan Fowler. The original live interview was 1/23/15.

    Top leadership researcher, consultant, and coach Susan Fowler says stop trying to motivate people! You can't motivate people—they are already motivated but generally in superficial and short-term ways. In this book, Fowler builds upon the latest scientific research on the nature of human motivation to lay out a tested model and course of action that will help leaders guide their people toward the kind of motivation that not only increases productivity and engagement but that gives them a profound sense of purpose and fulfillment.

    Susan Fowler has 35 years of experience as a researcher, consultant, and coach in over 30 countries around the globe in the field of self leadership. As an expert in the field of personal empowerment, she is the lead developer of The Ken Blanchard Company's Optimal Motivation product line, as well as Situational Self Leadership, their best-of-class self leadership and personal empowerment program. She is a Senior Consulting Partner at The Ken Blanchard Companies, and a professor in the Master of Science Leadership Program at the University of San Diego.

    Susan Fowler, author of Why Motivating People Doesn't Work ... and What Does

    in Business

     Susan Fowler is the author of Why Motivating People Doesn't Work...and What Doesn't -  one of those pleasant surprises in life, 200 pages of Aha moments and head nods and yes-yes-yes, that's so right answers on motivation: what works and what doesn'; and why, too. It's backed with science and case studies and anecdotes and it's well-organized and well-written and one of my favorite books this year.  I reviewed it here (Wordy, but I was inspired.)

    And Ms. Fowler is not a one-book wonder author. She's been bringing books and solutions and client-successes for over thirty years. She's the lead developer of The Ken Blanchard Companies' Optimal Motivation product line as well as the creator of Situational Self Leadership, the organization's best-of-class self leadership and personal empowerment program. She is the coauthor of six other books, including Situational Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager with Ken Blanchard and Laurie Hawkins, Achieve Leadership Genius with Drea Zigarmi and Dick Lyles, Leading at a Higher Level with Ken Blanchard, The Team Leader’s Idea-a-Day Guide with Drea Zigarmi, Empowerment with Ken Blanchard, Good Leaders, Good Shepherds with Dick Lyles, as well as audio programs on Mentoring—Fostering Your Careers Most Crucial Relationships and Overcoming Procrastination.
