Progress Principle: Post #4--Inner Work Life
Inner Work Life is greatly influenced by 3 types of events: Progress in meaningful work; catalysts that help a project work; and nourishers—positive interpersonal boosts at work. The MOST important influence is progress in meaningful work, or what the authors call The Progress Principle. (Negative opposites are setbacks, inhibitors, or toxins that undermine progress.) Leaders must manage for progress or no amount of emotional intelligence or incentives will motivate productivity.
