and concepts used throughout Behaviorally speaking, every action is motivated, either externally manipulation by others through rewards or punishment or internally self driven self reinforcing instinctive or moral In my understanding, this book examines external motivators, their short term usefulness and long term failures, ultimately comparing and contrasting the effectiveness of motivating others in favor of inspiring them Here again I found myself a little confused with some of the slightly esoteric definitions While the innumerable real world and anecdotal examples were certainly insightful, and I agree a good deal with the methods and mindsets employed, I really wish the author had given the reader a clear cut definition and contrast between what is meant by inspiration which I took to mean a putting on a path of self driven motivation or self reinforcing behavior vs motivation again, my understanding as externally driven motivators, whether punishment or reward as it seemed to get a bit muddled for me, and I sometimes found it hard to discern between the two and particularly what inspiration based leadership would look like in an actionable, ground floor plan for leaders especially in an environment that has previously been mismanaged under forceful leadership essentially, how does one turn the ship around Some of the solutions covered include hiring the right personality and letting go those who do not fit the mold, which I understand but I also know this is not always the appropriate, or sometimes even available, option and find myself windering if the principles for changing a company s culture mindset couldn t also apply at the individual level naturally with limitations Finally, I would have loved to have seen the book include chapter recaps complete with actionable steps.With that said, the concept of inspirational leadership over forceful, or carrot and stick type methods is a powerful one and this definitely a worthwhile read for anyone in a leadership role who is looking for a better way to create a positive impact in their team.Bottom line, I really love the concept of this book and took away some great pointers, but also felt like I was left with some unanswered questions as well However, if you are interested in behavior, psychology, leadership, and or the fascinating road where these three subjects intersect, you will love exploring the information and ideas in this book flag 1 likeLike see review Sep 29, 2018 Hildegart rated it liked it review of another edition Shelves first reads This book

an unbiased review This was a disappointing book for me as it was a very broad and superficial book touching many aspects of leadership with a particular view that extrinsic motivation should not be a key feature of either driving personal or team performance It was fascinating to me that the author refers to intrinsic and extrinsic motivation but never specifically defines either one, yet he uses the aspects of internal motivation as a key feature of personal leadership qualities There are superficial features from Simon Sinek s work by focusing on the Why of work and also his goal setting recommendation seems similar to SMART goal setting but never mentions it Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant, Time Based.Additionally, this book misses the richness of how different features of motivation can drive habits and successful real life behaviors Here is where background theory could help anchor the author s practical examples He could have discussed external regulation, introjected regulation, identified regulation and integrated regulation as all of these comprise what is called self determination theory, which can predict how people behave in different aspects of their life This is another criticism of the book he uses health examples and intrinsic motivation but a full understanding of the complexity of motivation would realize that a one size fits all approach does not apply across one s life For example, although I might be motivated to lose weight, if I don t have adequate transportation, have food insecurity, live in an unsafe neighborhood, it doesn t matter how motivated I am because I have to expend all of my energy just trying to survive Maslow s hierarchy is instructive here as my example talks about motivation from a physiological and safety needs i.e, Basic needs, whereas Hittler is talking about self actualization, i.e self fulfillment needs.The best audience for this book is someone who is starting to lead a team or just dipping his or her toes into leadership as it does give the reader a general survey of many leadership topics, but anyone else with leadership experience will be disappointed Interestingly, why I gave the book 2 stars instead of one star, is the author s example of coaching performance was much interesting and the book could have taken the perspective of how one coaches teams and individuals to high performance flag Like see review Oct 13, 2018 Mark Higbee rated it liked it review of another edition I received this book as an advanced reader and received no other compensation for my review I was
