Dr. Tracy Thomas, the world’s first Emotional Scientist(C), renowned psychologist, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Commitments: A Step-by-Step Guide to Personal Transformation, shares the mistake that most business leaders make when attempting to motivate their employees toward company growth: they focus on peoples’ skills, and not their intentions.
There’s a lot of emphasis on an employee’s job qualifications and experience. But when it comes to successfully building a company, even the most qualified employee isn’t going to be helpful if they don’t share in the business’ desire to grow. “On teams, everyone going towards the same intentions is that much more important than their skills,” says Dr. Thomas.

For example, if you have acquired a new company, you’ll need the employees of both former companies to have the desire to come together to form one business. Being clear about this will help everyone get on board with the change. “Intentions keep everyone moving in the same direction,” Thomas says. If an employee doesn’t want to merge or wants their job to stay just as it was before, they aren’t sharing the intention, which will make the process harder.
Overcoming these limiting patterns is a key part of the work at Dr. Tracy Inc., and why Thomas’ intentional training(C) program is so effective. Thomas and her team routinely work with influential, high-impact individuals to help them and their teams replace ideas that are standing in the way of greater success.
