Todd Henry is the co-author of The Motivation Code, a book teaching us to decode our motivational type so we can structure projects, have conversations, make decisions, and even choose career paths to amp up engagement and achieve fulfillment. Todd has written 4 other books and is also an international keynote speaker, consultant and advisor. A self confessed ‘arms dealer for the creative revolution,’ Todd’s work has been featured in publications and media that include Forbes, Harvard Business Review, and CNN. Todd hosts his own podcast, The Accidental Creative, delivering weekly tips and ideas for staying prolific, brilliant, and healthy since 2005.

Todd joins me today to discuss the steps we can take to steady our daily lives in these uncertain times of COVID-19. He shares the methods he uses when planning his work week and how he makes time for work and self development. He explains the need to address our own personal focus, nurture our relationships and tackle our ‘energy management’ in a new era of working remotely when we might forget to ‘clock off’. He also discusses his experience with The Motivation Code, a project that helped him identify his own set of behaviors and preferences, producing a tool to identify exactly what it is that drives our best work.
