Motivation, Engagement, and Wellness at Work (and Elsewhere!)

In every setting, from business to health care, and from classrooms to sport fields, fostering high-quality engagement and sustained motivation is a critical issue.

In this talk, Dr. Ryan will present research and practical insights into what fosters high-quality motivation, and how managers, coaches, teachers, and other leaders facilitate (or undermine) people’s fullest engagement, performance, and wellness.
He will describe how organizations can actively cultivate work climates that support people’s psychological needs, leading to increased job satisfaction, commitment, and productivity. He will also talk about how motivation can be derailed by the wrong incentives or evaluative structures. Along the way he will address such varied questions such as:

• What sustains people’s intrinsic motivation over time?
• Under what conditions do people love (or hate) their work?
• What life goals lead to happiness (and which don’t!)?
• What is universal versus culturally specific about human motivations?

Finally, he will entertain questions on any and all issues concerning motivation and wellness.
