post # 436 — September 24, 2007 — a General post

In the 23rd episode of this series, we are going to look at the issues of motivation, excitement and drive over the course of a career. At any given time, professionals can fall into one of three categories: dynamos, cruisers or losers. We will look at the affects that these different mindsets have on an organization and what managers must do to instill excitement in the workplace.
