Seven Intrinsic Benefits Which Motivate Commitment Whether you lead a company, a non-profit, an institution, or a government agency, people join your organization and remain committed to it for one of seven reasons. And for the most part, money and benefits have little to do with it. Instead, one of seven intrinsic benefits exerts a gravitational pull on those who choose to become part of your team or organization. This benefit -- what I call a motivational connection -- is the force which draws someone to become part of the group which you lead or manage. So long as this benefit remains vibrant, people remain committed. However, if the benefit dwindles or disappears, their commitment evaporates, as well. This episode examines each of these seven intrinsic benefits individually and offers real-life examples of the impact they have on motivation, morale, and engagement.
