Leaders across the world are struggling to motivate their people to get fired up for the task at hand. A recent Gallup study found that only 1-in-3 of the entirety of the United States workforce is considered engaged. This issue has managers everywhere grasping for straws on how to motivate their people, using everything from the classic underwhelming pizza party, to forcing employees to ‘have fun’ with disastrous results.

But the great coaches in the world know that the most powerful motivation comes from within someone, not from external stimuli. It’s something that our guest today, Jonathan Fader specializes in teaching others.

Jonathan is an NYC based coach, performance psychologist, speaker and author and founder of SportsStrata, a Mental Performance Coaching group who has worked with organizations ranging from elite athletes like the NY Mets and NY Giants, to first responders and the military. 

In his book “Coaching Athletes to Be Their Best: Motivational Interviewing in Sports” Johnathan details the ins and outs of the technique called Conversational Motivation, which harnesses the power of conversation and active listening to unlock the psychology of success.

At a time when engagement is at an almost all-time low and managers are struggling to do more with less, being able to keep your people fired up, goal oriented, and receptive to correct feedback is an essential skill for managers. Jonathan’s Motivational Interviewing techniques can be a guaranteed way for managers to acquire these skills.

This is another episode you’re not going to want to miss, so with that…let’s bring it in!
