In nearly every organization, leaders are being held accountable to do something they cannot do-motivate others. Leaders can’t motivate people, because people are already motivated.

The question is not if a person is motivated but why.

This realization always leads to an epiphany for training and human resource practitioners. HR’s dependence on carrots and sticks to motivate people had become common practice because we didn’t understand the true nature of human motivation.

Now we do, thanks to thought leaders like Dan Pink and his blockbuster book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.

Letting go of carrots and sticks has been a challenge.

HR leaders know:

  1. All about Dan Pink’s work,
  2. They know what they’ve been doing doesn’t work, and …
  3. They know managers aren’t successful at motivating people. But they haven’t understood what their alternatives are.

Understand viable alternatives to “Carrots & Sticks” on three levels:

  1. Individual (employees).
    • At this level, motivation is a skill. HR can teach employees the skills of motivation so they can thrive in any environment, even if the organization’s systems haven’t changed yet.
  2. Interpersonal (leaders).
    • HR can help leaders adjust their interpersonal interactions with employees – the way they set goals, have conversations, etc. – in ways that prime the pump for optimal motivation.
  3. Organization.
    • At some point, our systems are going to need to change – the systems around reward and recognition, compensation, job design, etc. What’s exciting is that until those systems change, we can still work at the individual and interpersonal, 1-to-1 level.

Join Susan in this dynamic presentation and learn what motivation is really all about!

The 5 Levels of Agile Planning

Online Webinar – Recorded January 13th 2015
Offered by ASPE (REP 2161) 1 Category A PDU – Free PDU

When a software development professional first hears about Agile, they are often initially incredulous that this type of approach can work due to a misperception that Agile simply means “no planning.”

This belief could not be further from the truth.

Agile teams tend to plan more throughout the course of a project than a traditional approach, albeit in a different fashion than they may be accustomed to. Rather than planning once at the beginning of a project, Agile teams practice continuous planning throughout the project.

This web seminar will explore the five Levels of Agile planning, and how they help teams ensure that teams are able to benefit from what they learn over the course of their development and delivery efforts.

The On-boarding Process Is Broken!

The statistics surrounding onboarding and employee engagement are staggering. Various reports tell us that something about the onboarding process is broken.

While the preferred tenure of most new hires is 2-3 years, almost 50% of Millennials plan to look for a new job this year.

In fact, Millennials rank cementing relationships and learning the corporate culture as the greatest challenge when transitioning into a company, and 28% report quitting a job because they didn’t feel connected to the organization.

What’s going on here?

Employers are spending more and more on finding the right candidate, only to drop the ball when it comes to integrating the new hire into the company and setting them up for success.

Join this webcast to explore:

  • How to identify the best candidates for your company culture
  • Ways to engage candidates in the company culture and brand during the application and interview process
  • Strategies for transition from successful hire to successful onboarding
  • How to increase engagement during the first 90 days and put your new hires on a path to succeed

In Ted Kallman new book, “Flow: Beyond Agile” scheduled for release this fall, Ted and Andrew Kallman share a number of case studies that documents well over US$100 million in value-add using Flow and the Unified Vision Framework.

Using these proprietary frameworks, they increased sales, reduced cost or mitigated risk to accomplish this.

This webinar shares the first case study from the book that is about a project in Singapore that was totally up in flames (projected to be 300% over budget and 2 years past deadline) and no one thought that it could be saved.

In 90 days the project went from impossible to profitable and delivered ahead of schedule and under budget.

They will explain in the webinar how to immediately apply these frameworks in your situation. Join us to learn how to create and sustain Flow!

Presenter: Ted Kallman (LinkedIn profile) is author of The Nehemiah Effect the story of the impossible task of building 4.5-mile wall around Jerusalem in 445 BC and how the project that should have taken years with a huge labor force to complete, was accomplished it with 150 leaders and an enormous volunteer team in 52 days. The book is a roadmap on how to accomplish seemingly impossible goals using a Business Agile framework.
