The topic of motivation is one we’ve been tracking and thinking about for years. That’s because it’s incredibly important for us as learning business leaders to understand the tremendous effect it has on learning. And when it comes to the topic of motivation, we continually find ourselves referring to Edward Deci’s, Why We Do What We Do: Understanding Self-Motivation, a book we strongly feel needs to be in the library of every learning business professional.
In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff give a high-level look at the key elements of human motivation from Deci’s book. They discuss the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, the importance of finding the balance between the two, and the impact this all has on learning.
