Most people think they need more motivation
– they don’t
What they need are the structures that support and amplify the
motivation to do great work.
When it comes to motivation, most of us have got it backwards – we try to motivate people from the inside-out be focussing on attitudes and beliefs. Or, we default to the ol' carrot and stick, and try to punish/pay for performance.
But motivation is not the problem. Everyone’s already got motivation – it’s the way our projects and work is designed... that’s the problem.
Fix the work – fix the motivation
Because when you remove the friction and get the motivation design of the work right, the work becomes inherently motivating. The work becomes the perk, and progress is what you get.
Because progress is what matters most
The way we work is fundamentally changing. The rigid hierarchal management structures that served us in factories are not going to support the intelligent, creative, collaborative work needed to drive future progress.
And I reckon you already know that, which might be why you're here. You know we're moving towards a model of work that's more purposeful and autonomous, with greater avenues for individual and collective mastery. And you know that technology is changing the playing field significantly.
But how do we build for the future of work?
Design for Motivation & Progress
Bam. That's how.
Progress is amplified when you put a project framework around it. And motivation design can help you get that project framework right.
So then! If you'd like to learn how motivation science and game design can be used to boost productivity, influence behaviour and make clever happen... you're in the right place.
Mayhaps there's some great work we can do too.
