Motivation is a competency that measures the team’s internal resources for generating and sustaining the energy necessary to get the job done well and on time. In the movie Invictus, Mandela gives the “Invictus” poem to the captain of the national rugby team and encourages him to find ways to rebuild the team’s image in the eyes of black South Africans. They begin to reach out to the various townships through rugby clinics and the people’s enthusiasm and support help build the motivation for the team to perform better than any could have expected. What movies can you think of that exemplify motivation? We’d love to hear from you!
