DRIVE: Using Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose to Transform Your Organization

The old models are broken. We see it everywhere - in three decades of declining employee engagement, in organizations that are struggling to adapt, and in a broader sense that businesses and governments alike could be doing better. That’s why cutting-edge organizations throughout the world are tossing off the outdated, mechanistic 21st century approach and embracing something new. Built upon five decades of social science, this new approach uses autonomy, mastery, and purpose as the pathway to high performance. As you will discover, challenging the existing orthodoxies isn’t just exhilarating. Today it’s the only way to survive.

Dan Pink’s book DRIVE is nearly ubiquitous in the agile community, yet until recently there were no concrete HOW-TO’s available for teams and organizations. That has changed with the introduction of the DRIVE Workshop, a 1 day immersive experience for teams and executives. In these short 75 minutes, I’ll present an overview of the basic principles of motivation, backed by science, and illustrated through real life examples; the 3 keys to motivation and engagement; and we’ll work through some real-life HOW-TO scenarios for making this happen in the real world. Everybody will leave with a play-book of ideas to take back to their organizations.

      You can arrive at the US Bank building at any time but the room will not be open until around 5:15.

  • Carl S.

    IMPORTANT: Do your best to arrive before 5:45pm. The US Bank Building becomes significantly more locked down at 6pm. Details Below.

    The only two entrances to the US Bank Building that are open after 6pm are 1) Cass Street (accessed through the Michigan St. Level) and 2) through the US Bank parking structure (unlocked until 7pm). The elevators will lock at 6pm and will need an employee badge to get to the Galleria floor (where the Vandenberg Room is located).

    Exact location for everyone's convenience:
