In today's episode Judith Germain speaks to Jem Fuller about intrinsic motivation and why extrinsic motivation doesn't work, emphasising the importance of fostering intrinsic motivation in individuals and teams.

In this show, Jem and Judith discuss various topics related to personal and professional development. They discuss the role of coaching and empathy in leadership and explore the idea that environment plays a crucial role in shaping behaviour, highlighting the importance of social connections in preventing negative behaviour.

Judith and Jem stress the need to understand the multiple layers that make up an individual's unique identity and the importance of creating positive environments that foster growth and development. Additionally, they discuss the concept of radical acceptance and growing without guilt, emphasising the importance of accepting oneself in the present moment and not wasting energy on mental anguish over the past.

This is an interesting and intriguing conversation.

Jem Fuller is a Leadership Coach, international retreat facilitator, award winning author and TEDx speaker.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
