    Brilliant. Thanks so much for sharing this Jim. I recruit sales people- who are supposed to be money motivated. According to Manpower’s perennial survey, sales positions are always the toughest to fill. Also toughest to retain. In many organizations, sales usually has the highest turnover of any job category. Is it because money just isn’t that motivating after all? Wow, a really mind-bending idea to consider, especially in reference to sales.
