Half-Day Pre-Conference Workshop
Stream: Transforming Complex Change
Engagement is Emotional
Understand the limitations of if-then rewards, extrinsic motivation, and mechanistic systems that feel disingenuous and adopt real practical and dynamic communication processes that create trust, respect and influence. (A Tool Box of Suggestions will be included in master handout.) Discover the three principles of inspiring leadership – Authentic Presence, Self Direction and Full Engagement – simple practices that build on new expectations of today’s more evolved, conscious and self-aware employees. Review The Great 8 – how to have a conversation in ten minutes or less that helps people think better, get clear and be inspired to take action! We’ll look at: Inspiration vs Motivation: Is there a Difference? Does it matter? There is a mismatch between what science knows and what business does. Motivation used to work. It’s time to inspire … Do you know why?
