“Whenever I had sat in management meetings up until that time to talk about motivating our teams, the conversation had always been one-dimensional. I have to believe that I was the first one in any of the management teams I had been on to understand that the causes of dissatisfaction are distinct from the factors that motivate. The realization that we needed to focus first on ensuring that our people were satisfied with a basic set of factors in order to be able to motivate them with a different set was a true epiphany. It changed the conversation.”
