She's also co-authored a book called The Demotivated Employee to help leaders address this problem that may be costing companies $500 billion annually. In this Hack the Process interview, Dr. Peters will tell us what leaders can do to help recognize and address de-motivating patterns of behavior, how she balances her demanding academic and consulting careers, and why learning to work virtually now might put business consultants at an advantage.

Not just interesting but helpful, practical

Useful, practical, helpful. David has an uncanny way of going deeper with guests than the typical podcast venturing past the interesting but surface-level stories and into the details of the sausage making.

J. Barshop ,

Awesome show, highly recommend!

M. David and his guests provide some incredibly compelling content that is both educational and actionable.

As an entrepreneur myself, I highly recommend listening and subscribing to Hack the Process if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to become the very best version of yourself (and reach those big dreams as a result)!

Learn HOW to Accomplish Things

A lot of shows talk about methods, but this one talks about how people have actually made gains in their own lives. So much more helpful than just reading about results.
