Drive Employee Engagement with Motivation 2.0

"Leadership is the art of getting someone to do what you want, because they want to do it," Dwight Eisenhower once remarked. He nailed it. Our employee engagement program is designed to make that shift in thinking, using the latest motivation science to unlock the untapped discretionary effort in your team. 

There are many good reasons to do so. Engaged employees are up to 28% more productive (Conference Board), but only 29% of employees are engaged (Gallup). Firms with the highest engagement have 3.9 times the shareholder return. Gallup estimates the cost from lost productivity due to disengagement at $300 billion a year. 

How much effort is being left on the table in your organization from unengaged or actively disengaged employees?

Build Trust & Morale

Our employee engagement training brings progress, trust, and value to your team through the science of the most potent motivation, intrinsic motivation, or Motivation 2.0, as it has been called.

Employees who are intrinsically motivated are continuously interested in the work they are doing, the science shows (Harackiewicz, Elliot). They work for the inherent interest, excellence, or challenge, not for an external reward.

This powerful training gives your organization the tools to unleash this force and satisfy your employees' core needs. The research has documented that supporting core needs activates the main drivers of engagement — trust in leadership, acknowledging achievement, two-way communication, career development, and self-responsibility.


The Right Motivation

Training That Unlocks Extra Effort

We help your organization tap in to the inner aspirations that drive self-initiative. Engagement can't be commanded. It can only be enabled through the right motivation.

When you change how people think about work, the data shows that they can go from actively disengaged to engaged. That's our mission, activating self-propelled excellence with a new insight into what it is people really want and drives satisfaction.

Motivation 2.0: How to Get Employees to Go the Extra Mile

Hidden in every organization is a vast, untapped potential that can boost profits, teamwork, and productivity. Only 28% of employees are engaged at work, while 53% are not and 19% are disengaged, according to Gallup.

This program gives your team the tools to unlock that enormous engagement potential by giving employees the proper incentives and structures shown to produce the trust, competence, and self-initiative that leads to fully engaged workers.

We use the latest motivation research to change the way leaders and employees interact, following the science to new relationships based on a different kind of communication, self-responsibility, and internally-oriented goals.
