Hi Heidi, I'd like to check if it's possible to have a prevention focused motivation with a promotion focused approach?

Managers Can Motivate Employees With One Word
Human beings are profoundly social — we are hardwired to connect to one another and to want to work together. Frankly, we would never have survived as a species without our instinctive desire to live and work in groups, because physically we are just not st...

+Heidi Grant Halvorson It's so interesting to read an article like this, because routine and ritual are often portrayed as a negative aspect of human life. Now, anything can be harmful, but it's great to see a positive portrayal of these kinds of habits. I noticed that the article focuses on rituals as part of the workplace, but have there been studies on rituals that students and/or children partake in?
