I do see value in a benefit-based approach when trying to motivate or inspire action from teams. Even a why helps when just trying to differentiate myself vs the technical/ functional competencies that might be comparable to other qualified candidates in the interviewing process.

That said- thanks for sharing, it was a great listen and potentially more actionable-- if I can think of some prototypes focused on music/ singing, tennis/ sports, and or food trucks 😊.
