2018 The Leadership + Talent Development Summit Speaking Topics:
Integrated Motivational Orientations: Motivation, The Brain, And Behavioral Modification.
The big idea: Motivation is central to our lives at work. Having a systematic approach to motivating your behavior is what matters—yours and others. this is a skill that can be learned.
Your IMO: Helps you understand some of the hidden forces of your motivators and help you to increase the positive effects and reduce any of the potentially harmful effects of your motivational orientation. Understanding the building blocks of your motivational system and the ways in which they can work better for you is essential, not optional.
The simpler you can create pathways to influence what energizes, orients and directs you to behave in certain ways, the better you can arrange things to make your actions more useful. What matters most is to get started by understanding (sufficient awareness and no more) how your motivational system works—getting a sense of influence and mastery. Few of us have any systematic way of doing just that. When understanding your own personal IMO, “focus on what directly leads you to take action.” You won’t make yourself more effective by copying other people’s motives; you must first start with your own motivational nature and what serves you best and then make it automatic.
The main actors in why we do certain things and not others are your motivational orientation and your environment. Your motivational system lies at the heart of your behavior (what we do or not do) because you are in a better position to influence your behavior than to change your environment. Your unique Integrated Motivational Orientation (IMO) is the central concept of importance to you in this report.
