Harness your motivation and unlock the leader within

Harness your motivation and unlock the leader within

Never before has motivation been such a relevant subject. 

In these most uncertain of times, we could be forgiven for believing we must simply ‘dig deep’ and ‘push through’; after all that is what so many people have been doing for years in order to survive in their roles. 

CREATE Motivation, however, offers a very different approach. 

It shows you how to get better outcomes with greater ease by harnessing motivation. And it suggests a wider definition of leadership – a definition which seems so fitting for the current climate. By following the steps in this book we can begin to readdress leadership, so that it is no longer seen as the preserve of the few, but instead the responsibility of the many.

CREATE Motivation will show you how.

My ambition is for people to have the clarity to cut through the many tasks that could be done and only do those which will make a difference. My hope is for people to step into their greatness deliberately: standing in a place that balances humility and a sense of self-worth enables us to be brave, courageous and generous in the work that we do. Having consistency and conviction and balancing support and challenge within a team enables its members to make the positive impact they seek and this world needs.

‘In this book, Kate gives a disarmingly honest account of motivation, in which she is an expert. If you follow her CREATE model and do the exercises in the book, you will not only understand your own motivation for change, you’ll understand what you need to do about it, how you go about it, and why you need to bother doing it at all. A beautifully written book which captivates you at a deep level, and will move you on from being stuck to a wonderful state of flow.”

“Anyone reading this book will find that there are plenty of ideas here to help improve their current situation and make them more of a high performer. Of central significance to the book is the word ‘motivation’ in the title. We realise that although we need answers and responses to all three questions, What, How and Why, yet there has been in our culture for far too long an overemphasis on the What and How, and it is the Why that really needs addressing at this critical juncture…”

“Kate’s definition of leadership couldn’t be more true in my eyes, she explains it as “the daily practice of taking responsibility for oneself, showing up fully and continuing to grow while enabling others to do the same”. This reflects my experience of working with Kate over the years and why I relished reading her book. Her CREATE model is aimed at harnessing motivation and inspiring everyone (no matter what their job title) to step up to be leaders in their own right in order to deliver on their organisation’s purpose. It’s a model that puts motivation at the forefront - and in that way – it really is transformational for organisational culture and behaviours.”

In this book, I write about where motivation comes from. I am living proof of how you can harness and change your motivation. Motivation is influenced by our past, present and future. My past self never believed I could or would write a book so I didn’t. At this stage, my imposter syndrome loomed large. My present self now realises I have 20+ years of valuable experience to share – and so writing the book has been a joy – perhaps even a compulsion. My future self (what I now believe about future outcomes) recognises the impact this book could have and this fuels a determination in me to use my experience to shift the paradigm around motivation and leadership in the workplace. Given the changing time in which we live, the exercises and insight shared in this book seem more relevant than ever.
