Improving your Self-Image by Living an Intrinsically Motivated Life

We believe one of the biggest challenge of building a healthy organization and strong teams is the insecurity people feel. While people cannot control their circumstances, they can control how they view themselves. The most healthy self-image is not found in what you do, but rather in who you are as expressed by your intrinsic motivations. A healthy self-image is one of the most important characteristics every person needs to develop if they are going to feel good about themselves and confident before others. We explore three-core questions and how they inform what we do, rather than trying to define our self-image by what we do.

This topic is applicable to companies and organizations who seek to help their people view themselves and become a more confident contributor to the organization.
