Learn how to tap into your team’s top motivators and lead them to fulfil their purpose and potential.

My latest book, Motivation: The Ultimate Guide to Leading Your Team, comes out in 2022. This book is for leaders and managers of people who want to know how to motivate their teams, improve their well-being, and feel motivated themselves.

What’s the book about?

To be published by Routledge, Autumn 2022

  • Do you sometimes struggle to motivate yourself and your team?
  • Do you know how to lead your team to do more of what energises them and less of what turns them off?
  • Are you an “accidental manager” with great technical skills who hasn’t been trained for managing people?

No-one tells you how to motivate yourself or how to motivate others. You are expected to work it out for yourself. Motivation: The Ultimate Guide to Leading Your Team will help you pick your way through the motivation minefield and apply simple tools to tap into your team’s top motivators and lead them to fulfil their purpose and potential.


  • the four top motivators
  • how your own top motivator impacts your leadership style
  • how to identify which ones apply to which members of your team
  • how to engage, develop, and delegate to people with different motivators
  • simple tools and techniques to help them (and yourself) sustain motivation
  • how to be resilient through setbacks

Along the way, you’ll understand more about your own motivation and how to make choices about your career and life that fit with who you really are.
