"On Day Twenty-Eight, you'll feel that you completely understand how to apply one of the many motivation theories to your team. On Day Twenty-Nine, you'll discover that each of your course-mates proposed an equally viable motivation theory for equally probable reasons. On Day Fifty-Six, you'll learn that your weeks of questioning by your classmates have taught you to critically question your own assumptions."
