The link above is a YouTube video link that is a great motivational tool that IHRM professionals can use to motivate and encourage expatriates to follow their goals and aspirations. The video is entitled “Why You Will Fail to Have a Great Career” by Larry Smith, an economics professor at the University of Waterloo in Canada. It is funny but gives very honest tips to motivate people to follow their goals and dreams.
