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!

Project implementation is required to reach the desired outcomes in business. There, advancement in right direction with effectively managing the scarce resource optimization is always critical and most needed.

You develop a WBS, apply project management systems, particularly EVM and then settle down with project monitoring and control processes to reach the end result – but is that enough? No, not at all.

Every system, process and methodology is put to use with the will of a team member and the level of connectivity with the task that is the “point” for taking timely action.

Your focus is required on managing the human resource, particularly connecting the team members with purpose and the objectives of the project.

Additionally, you focus on how to help satisfy each team member’s personal value.

There the human factors are of prime importance for high engagement and meaningfulness in work.

Learn how to accomplish this, as well as:

  1. The effective approach for connectivity of team members
  2. Why aligning the personal value is important with that of a project
  3. Why dealing with negative emotions is important
  4. How to maintain the connectivity
