Motivating and delegating
Motivating is about finding the buttons to get us going what we do and pushing them: and if you delegate anything, it’s about pushing other people’s motivating buttons too.

Without motivation we get very little done. Without delegation we’re limited to how much we can get done the benefits are huge, so are the risks. Our training looks at how to mange the risks of delegating by motivating those people we delegate to, as well as how to motivate ourselves.
