PODCAST: Life and Success Lessons with Bob Nelson, Ph.D.
In today's "Success Interview," I had the privilege of interviewing the best-selling author Bob Nelson, Ph.D. He is a leading authority on employee recognition, motivation, and engagement. He has sold over 5 million copies of his books, including, 1501 Ways to Reward Employees.
We discussed the importance of having coaches in your life. Dr. Nelson encourages listeners to participate in what he calls the "what does the ideal day look like for you?" activity. If you've ever wanted to write a book, Dr. Nelson shares ideas for becoming an author and what it means to have tenacity. We discussed the importance of leadership and the impact they have on culture, performance, and motivation. A leader cannot say, "It's not my job to motivate my people." Uh, no. False. Motivation is a leader's responsibility.
