The Neuroscience of Motivation

For decades we have used deadlines, pressured evaluations and imposed goals to motivate ourselves and others. We thought that if we rewarded behavior and kept people happy we would get more of the behavior that we wanted.

Discoveries in neuroscience show that these things do not always contribute to greater motivation and can sometimes even kill it. Science has cracked the code on what energizes people to move towards their goals and what turns them off.

In this workshop, Louisa shares the latest research and practical tools that you can implement with your teams to get them engaged and unleash peak performance!
