Is your organization experiencing change? During uneasy times, do staff or volunteers need more motivation? The research is in and motivation is not just about money. You don’t have to guess at what will work. Take advantage of neuroscience to more effectively motivate and engage staff and volunteers. Learn the factors that reward the brain and practical ways to apply them in your organization. This program uses interactive exercises that create an energy-filled environment which contributes to memory and application of the skills.

  • Understand the basics of brain function as it applies to motivation.
  • Apply the five Cs (control, certainty, connection, clout and consistency) with staff and volunteers to activate a reward response.
  • Use intrinsic motivation as a management tool to enhance engagement and motivation.

This program is for mid to upper-level managers who work with diverse staff, volunteers and teams. The program is appropriate for a keynote, workshop or webinar. It is an excellent companion to the infotuition decision-making program.

Participant comments:

  • Excellent comments on motivation and interpersonal skills.
  • I liked the applications and examples relative to the various groups and individuals (including me!) that we regularly work with. Good value; pertinent to our situations. Thanks!
  • Introspective aids to help understand how and why we do what we do in situations and how to mitigate negative and positive behavior.

Distractions, Meetings and More: Control These Brain-Draining Time-Wasters

Time is money…but do you know how much money lost productivity is costing? Have you stopped to calculate the money that is wasted due to distraction, poor meeting management, missed opportunities, and piddling away limited brain power?

This program assists you and your staff to consciously understand the cost of time and to bring it into day-to-day choices. Plus, advances in neuroscience show that your brain has limited energy for focused attention. To make the best decisions, you need to recognize how and when you use that precious resource, and how to recharge it.

Learn to stop squandering time and brain energy on:

  • Distractions that compete for attention at every turn;
  • Poorly managed meetings that take too long and don’t result in decisions;
  • Ineffective personal time allocation; and
  • Habit behaviors that block recognition of new opportunities.

This program is for managers, team leaders and senior staff who juggle competing demands and must optimize their time, energy and brain power to be professionally successful. It is available as a workshop, breakout session, or virtual learning.
