I'm not here to 'motivate' you
At least, not in the traditional sense.
With the exception of once winning a badminton racket for 'best effort' I have no sporting achievements, nor have I climbed any mountains, broken or lost any limbs, discovered the 'secret' to success, or have any rehearsed inspirational stories to share.
But what I do have is a heap of savvy in the science of motivation, and how it applies to leadership, strategy, and the future of work. Which is possibly more relevant and useful.
Here's a now somewhat old video of me unpacking the concept of motivation design. You can tell the video is old on account of my beard being shorter.
People don't need to be managed or motivated—we want to do great work. But then self-sabotage, organisational friction, autocratic leadership, blinkered strategy, stagnant culture and poor work design gets in the way.
We need to go beyond simple pep talks—we need better strategies to make great work happen and progress the things that matter.
That's where I can play a part—but it's kind of hard to categorise what I do. Motivation design in the context of pioneering leadership, strategy and culture change probably sums it up.
But perhaps this testimonial explains it best:
Every year we run a very important event that brings together our most senior leaders from 23 different countries. These guys are all very switched on, and have seen a lot of the conventional ‘change leadership’ stuff before, but Jason provided something that was incredibly fresh, clever and practical. This provoked new thinking, and stimulated very constructive discussions amongst our leaders. Jason contributed greatly to the success of our event. — Director of Talent, PepsiCo
We could call it perspective. Rather than bring the same tired old clichéd concepts to your event, I assume you've got smart and savvy folk in the room. They don't need the 101 stuff. They want fresh perspectives and insights with a bias toward progress.
So: let's make clever happen
I've put together a bit of a guidebook for you. This pdf brochure provides an overview of the expertise I can bring to your event, and the effect we can create together for your audience.
This little guidebook contains everything you need, including a fee guide.
I'm not for everyone, but if you have a pioneering spirit and a penchant for progressing things non-standard, we are going to get along mighty fine.
Email (or call +61 411 033 399) to see if I'm available for your event
I'm usually booked 6–12 months in advance. If you have an event in mind, and you're considering my contribution, let us know early and we'll see if we can put a hold in our calendar for you.
Then, we can tee up a chat and take it from there.
Did someone say testimonials & happy clients?
No? Oh well here's just a few anyway...
