Rip Up the Rule Book - Why We Do What We Do

Tuesday, May 04, 2021 3PM EDT/12PM PDT

This presentation will focus on Edward L. Deci’s book Why We Do What We Do. You might want to purchase the book. You will not be disappointed. I will bookend Deci’s book with other books, articles, and research. We will draw our attention to - Instead of asking, “How can I motivate my people?” we should be asking, “How can I create the conditions within which people will motivate themselves?” The question we need to ask is, “Is a behavior autonomous or controlled?” To be autonomous means to act in accord with one’s self – it means feeling free and volitional in one’s action. To be controlled means to act because one is being pressured. If you want increased productivity and harmony in the workplace do not miss this presentation.

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain an understanding of self – motivation

2. Learn how to promote autonomy

3. Learn how to get the healthy behavior you want
