THE SEVEN MOTIVATIONS OF LIFE - Taking your Leadership to a Higher Level (available in Paperback and eBook)

7 Motivations Frontcover

This book defines the key characteristics of being human and gives practical clues on how to get the life we want.

This theory gives major insights into 'being human' and leadership, explaining the empirical results of what makes a great leader identified by Jim Collins in his bestselling book: GOOD TO GREAT. His book provides the data but this book provides the theory - the why. You'll also learn more substantive answers to life's key questions.

I have to say it is a beautiful book. It is life-enhancing and inspirational, very well-written and easy to understand...although I would not want you to think by that that I find it simplistic. On the contrary, it has great depth...it is quite clearly the product of a lot of research and scholarship - Doctor Robin Usher, Professor of Research Education & Director of Research Training at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University
