AGL 078: The Motivation Myth with Jeff Haden

Jeff Haden is speaker, ghostwriter, Inc. Magazine contributing editor, and author of the bestselling The Motivation Myth: How High Achievers Really Set Themselves Up to WIn. Before changing careers he spent 20 years in manufacturing, starting as an entry-level shop-floor employee, climbing the ladder through a variety of customer service, human resources, production control, and multi-plant improvement team positions, to finally direct all manufacturing operations for a Fortune 500 company. Along the way he “made every leadership mistake it was possible to make.”

But he learned a lot from those mistake. And he also wants you to know that Richard Branson once gave him half his sandwich. So there is that.

Today We Talked About:

  • 100,000 push-ups and 50,000 sit-ups in a year
  • One on Ones
