Phil Quoted in Fast Company Article on Employee Motivation

Fast Company’s recent article “The Link Between Employee Motivation and Their Manager’s Mental State” dives into a new study from the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes that looked at how a leader’s mindset affects his or her team’s performance.

What the study found is that “bosses can modify their mindset to produce a certain outcome from workers, whether that’s innovation or a more conservative work focus aimed at meeting basic obligations and preventing errors.”

Stephanie Vozza, author of the Fast Company piece, broke down these two basic leader mindsets – innovative versus promotion focused – with the help of Christopher Porter, professor of management at Indiana University Kelley School of Business, and our very own Phil Wilson of Approachable Leadership.
