Asking how to motivate people is the wrong question! They're already motivated—you just need to understand why they are motivated. Best-selling author, consultant, and trainer Susan Fowler believes leaders can contribute to others' success by understanding why people are motivated and creating work environments that foster people's internal motivation, leading to what Fowler calls Optimal Motivation.
Wednesday, December 10, Susan Fowler will join The Kevin Eikenberry Group as a special guest in his teleseminar series with an event called “Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work: Rethinking Five Beliefs that Erode Workplace Motivation." Fowler will discuss workplace motivation and the five workplace beliefs that erode it. As a special bonus, attendees of the session will receive a complimentary copy of Fowler's book.
"Fowler's book and ideas are practical and powerful," Eikenberry says. "It is my hope that this hour-long session will provide listeners with a new frame of reference and a toolkit to understand and apply the science of motivation in ways that will make a difference for them individually and also for their teams and organizations.”
One of the workplace beliefs that erodes motivation is the idea “It’s not personal; it’s business.” This common belief belies the fact that people spend the majority of their working hours at work. What happens at work deeply affects a person’s life; it is personal. Fowler recommends that we replace this misconception with a different phrase “If it is business, it is personal.”
Fowler's presentation will incorporate the latest scientific research on the nature of human motivation, uncovering five workplace beliefs that erode motivation, to help leaders understand how they can guide their people toward the kinds of motivation that not only increases productivity and engagement but gives them a profound sense of purpose. She’ll demonstrate how to move people away from dependence on external rewards as they discover how their jobs can meet deeper psychological needs—resulting in meaningful and sustainable motivation.
Kevin Eikenberry’s Remarkable Learning series highlights important leadership topics in a monthly teleseminar designed to be instantly applicable and practical. Participants interact with and learn from experts in monthly events. “I am honored to be a part of Kevin’s series.,” Fowler said. “I look forward to a powerful hour of learning, sharing and growing.”
