The Flourishing Introvert Talks

Mar 24, 2022

As Joanna is working more and more with introverted managers and leaders, Flourishing Introverts introduces a series of episodes devoted to leadership and management, and how as introverts, we need to approach those everyday responsibilities a little bit differently. Each week your host will explore a topic that challenges introverts, identify the root of any issues, and offer some potential options and solutions.


In this episode, Joanna answers the question she most receives during leadership and management training: How do I motivate my team? While motivation is essential for progress, followership, and well-being, you may be surprised to hear that your host does not believe it is the responsibility of a leader. Listen in as Joanna talks about self-motivation and how to put the right conditions in place to empower people to live into their true purpose.
