How can the inner energy driving our “why” be measured and then enhanced or sustained?
Research shows that the outcomes of engagement — i.e. productive work behaviors like innovation, loyalty, collaboration, operational efficiency, and financial growth — all tie to one core focus: individual motivation.
Personal engagement is often a foundational issue leading to mediocre performance within both individuals and teams.
Pep talks don’t really work, and research shows that elaborate team building events lack long-term results. Shared emotions can cause people to feel more engaged for a little while, but they simply don’t deliver consistent results over time.
In fact, the most growth-minded leaders know that connecting collaboration and individual motivators of success-minded team members is the key to unlock productive teamwork. But how is a leader to know what internally motivates each individual?
Who Can I Help?

Hi, I'm Kaye Carter.
With over 30 years of corporate workforce and leadership experience, I know how challenging it can be to stay motivated in a demotivating work culture.
It can be difficult to manage teams going through organizational change and a real challenge to increase productivity levels of a team that is struggling to meet goals and stay engaged.
I am passionate about helping clients get to root causes of their performance concerns so they become self-motivated masters— working and living in their full potential!
If you are tired of the outcome you’ve been getting, it’s time to try something new!
