2. Recognizing and understanding employees’ internal motivators is crucial for optimizing their performance and avoiding stagnation or revenue leakage in the business.

3. Creating and maintaining the right company culture, including clear communication of core values, mission statements, and expectations, is essential for fostering a high-performing team environment and driving business success.

"If you cannot figure out and unlock the...internal drivers of your people, you will always have some form of leakage in your business, leakage in your revenue, or stagnation at your company. Because you've got to figure out how to optimize, motivate your people, and the only way to do that is to understand your people better." — Jonathan Dawson
