I’ve Been Dissed & Now I’m Pissed: 
Design Your Organization to
Invite (not sabotage) Motivation!

Gallup tells us that half of our working people are not engaged. And that 17% are dissed and/or pissed!

How do we make that better?

The Six Factor Model to Invite Motivation addresses:
Nurturing the Individual by providing Purpose, Mastery, & Autonomy
and Setting the Context by Deliberately Designing the Organization,
the Peers, the Leaders, the Place, & the Work.

Join us on this hot August night and bring your observations and insights to our discussion about the omnipresent issue of motivation in our world of organizing.

 We look forward to seeing you there!
