Today we had our bi-weekly one hour break session and the topic was motivation. After a quick introduction into intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation, we played Moving Motivators  https://management30.com/practice/moving-motivators/ with interesting results. An advanced variant could be to guess your colleagues based on their order of the 10 motivation cards?

As a thank you for the good cooperation of the participants I did share the 12 Steps to Happiness, a perfect fit to the current Homeoffice situation,  https://management30.com/practice/happiness-steps/.

Some motivating links or helpful content to get motivated:

"Classic economic theory, based as it is on an inadequate theory of human motivation, could be revolutionized by accepting the reality of higher human needs, including the impulse to self actualization and the love for the highest values." -- Abraham Maslow,  American - Psychologist April 1, 1908 - June 8, 1970,  https://www.simplypsychology.org/maslow.html

Another step of the Mission accomplished. Docking Dragon with the ISS and the 2 test pilots joining the ISS crew on board, as you can see on the picture. Well done and great to see technology at work.

After beating the weekly reader record last week, we could beat the 5 weeks average of weekly readers this week. The new record is 3.994 - great work done and one of my personal Missions accomplished 😉.

The coming week is another 4 day working week, as we do have a bank holiday in Germany tomorrow, Whit Monday. Yesterday I did get a present from the Vodafone Germany CEO Hannes Ametsreiterhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/hannes-ametsreiter/. A bar of chocolate and a personal thank you note to all employees and their commitment and attitude during the Corona crisis, lockdown and homeoffice period. Great sign and very much appreciated.
