'The very best insights, tools and tips for managing yourself and your goals in high-pressure situations' – Daniel H. Pink

Doing something for its inherent satisfaction – rather than external rewards – is the key to success and satisfaction in any endeavour. Motivation is the essential and comprehensive guide to how you can achieve this. Filled with practical methods and techniques Stefan Falk developed at McKinsey & Company, and through twenty-five years as a senior executive and performance coach working with elite athletes, top executives, special operators in the armed forces and leaders from all walks of life.

To satisfy our psychological needs in today’s professional world, we must pursue them consciously and purposefully – but unfortunately, most of us don’t know how to do so effectively. The true solution to becoming happier, healthier and more productive is to become intrinsically motivated: to stop wasting time on activities that don’t really contribute to our careers or our company’s success, eschew the dog-eat-dog culture of modern business, and find ways to take pleasure in what we do – and to do it well. This groundbreaking book will revolutionize your approach to success at work and beyond.
