044: How to Unlock Motivation with Dr. Ayelet Fishbach

It’s harder today to keep motivation strong and sustained, due partly to the decrease in organized and structured work environments. Many people are encountering a negative impact on their ability to reach their own goals, given higher levels of distraction.

For episode 044 of “The World Class Leaders Show” podcast, I was thrilled to discuss the most interesting topic of Motivation with Dr. Ayelet Fishbach. Dr. Fishbach is the Jeffrey Breckinridge Keller Professor of Behavioural Science and Marketing at the Chicago Booth School of Business. 

Dr. Fishbach’s ground-breaking research on human motivation has won the Society of Experimental Social Psychology’s Best Dissertation Award and Career Trajectory Award, and the Fulbright Educational Foundation Award.

By listening to this podcast episode, you will learn more about the key elements of motivation, including:

  1. Setting a goal, and leveraging intrinsic motivation
  2. Monitoring progress, and the importance of sub-goals
  3. Setting priorities and managing multiple goals simultaneously
  4. The importance of social support
