Need to whip your staff?

You win by hiring passionate people. Instead of hiring people you have to motivate.  In his book, TURNING PRO, Steven Pressfield makes this point perfectly by quoting a famous race horse trainer. Here is part of that quote:

“…Horses understand the whip, but I don’t want a racer that runs that way. A horse that loves to run will beat a horse that’s compelled, every day of the week. I want a horse that loves the track. I want my exercise riders to have to hold them back in the morning because they’re so excited to get out and run.”
