‘The Psychology of Motivation’ by Simon Drury

Do you need want to know more about what really motivates you? In this amazing talk we are going to explore the psychological processes that drives personal motivation. 

In this talk you will learn; 

- The understanding our personal motivational make-up in relation to our work, how we use our work to validate who we are and what we fear if we can’t.

- Motivational theory model – Core Needs

- Identification of specific personal motivators, evaluation exercise to determine the current level of satisfaction of personal motivators and action plans

The content focuses on our deep psychological motivators. These have to be satisfied constantly and drive our decision-making, behaviours and language. Success in this quest makes us feel good and the converse is also true. When we know what our motivational profile is we are better able to create strategies to tick our boxes. Most of us use work to achieve this, so picking the ‘right’ career or vocation is essential (we also seek satisfaction of our motivators within our non-work life). This, of course, also influences the goals we set and ultimately can have a direct bearing on our feelings of fulfilment and well-being.

Here is what you will take away with you after the talk;

1. An opportunity to understand personal motivators at a deeper level thus identifying the key areas of focus to help us create a fulfilling and meaningful life

2. Recognising how satisfied these are, or not, which will shed light on some of the frustrations we experience in life and how to avoid them

3. Initiate thinking and planning on how to satisfy these deep needs in order to experience a sense of personal well-being

    Another wonderfully interesting talk! Thank you Simon and Matt. We were taught what it is that motivates and demotivates us, and given tricks and tips to help fire up our motivation. It was a very motivating talk full of great food for thought. And the after-chat in the pub was wonderful!

    Great talk Simon. Had come across '6 Care Needs' before but your interpretation of it was very effective and made me think about those needs in a new and deeper way. Thank you.
