Description

Mapping Motivation for Leadership, co-written with Jane Thomas, is the fourth of a series of seven books that are all linked to the author’s Motivational Map toolkit. Each book builds on a different aspect of personal, team and organisational development.

This is a practical guide to leadership in the 21st century and builds on the ‘4+1’ model outlined in the author's original book Mapping Motivation: Unlocking the Key to Employee Energy and Engagement. There is an increasing body of evidence, that the single most important aspect of being a leader relates to managing emotions effectively, and this management goes way beyond simply ‘understanding’ emotional intelligence; it is in fact a practice and one that is intimately connected with personal development and growth, and with energy. Energy, as Mapping Motivation made clear, is synonymous with motivation. The effective leaders of tomorrow will be those who understand their motivators, who regularly measure their motivators, sustain and replenish and maximise their motivators, and who do the same for their employees.

Clearly, there is a link here with the book on engagement, for leaders who do so will engage their employees. However, this book not only covers the motivational side of leadership, but also explores in detail the skill sets necessary in the ‘4+1’ model: thinking skills, action skills, team skills and motivational skills plus that indefinable ‘something’ that is a commitment to personal development, so that we as leaders are not trying to solve today’s problems with yesterday’s training as our only internal resource.

Reviews

"James Sale provides a compelling narrative using the language of motivation to truly help people understand themselves and build better, more transparent, organisations going forward." — Tony Henderson, Account Director, Operator Channels at Microsoft Limited

"Mapping Motivation for Leadership is deeply wise guidance for leaders at all levels and activities. Included are immediately useful tools and practical pathways for growth. With exceptional clarity, James Sale and Jane Thomas laser in on the particular motivations of leaders and those they work with. He aims to create people-centered collaboration, which leads to innovation and self-awareness. A terrific book, highly recommended." — Michael J. Goldberg, author of The 9 Ways of Working and Travels with Odysseus
