A lack of emotional engagement is the primary reason that change efforts fail. While our emotional elephant can be decisive and action oriented, it requires immediate gratification and positive reinforcement to keep going. In this segment, we will identify three proven methods for motivating the elephant. The first method is to find the feeling, in other words to make people care.
