Crucial Chat: Goals and Groups - Working Without Pay

This Crucial Chat by Mike Sedam discusses what motivates people to keep going in the face of adversity.

During the federal government shutdown, Mike was able to see some federal employees that continue to work without pay.

What did he see? The employees were working toward a common goal. They stuck together in their teams. They were still looking out for the mission and the people they serve.

What drives these people are the same things that drive us all:

1. People are driven by a goal bigger than themselves.

2. People are driven by having relationships. We can do more together than we can alone and we can deal with bad situations better when we feel we are part of a strong, trusting group.

3. People are driven by the esteem they get from the roles they play.
