... virtually everyone is a motivator in one situation or another—when we're persuading a friend to lose weight, or giving a pep talk to our kids, or trying to help a batter out of a slump, we're motivators. Either we are doing it poorly or we are doing it well. —Alan Loy McGinnis
From his book Bring Out the Best in People
I want to learn to be a better motivator. Maybe making a list of how to better motivate people might be a start. What are your suggestions to improving in this area?
