I often write about differences across cultures but a conversation with Susan Fowler, author of Why Motivation Doesn’t Work and What Does, whose work is to share the science of motivation and the tools for applying it, reminded me that we all share some fundamental commonalities. We want to spend time with family or friends, have fun, and learn or accomplish new things.

Here are 3 ways Susan believes leaders can do a better job of making business personal:

  • They need to help people find meaning in their work.
  • They need to promote values-based behavior.
  • They need to remind people how their work contributes to a greater good.
