Description: In Drive: The Surprising Truth About What What Motivates Us, author Daniel Pink explores the latest scientific research on human motivation. In particular, he focuses on the quality of motivation that is influenced by extrinsic aspirations versus intrinsic aspirations. In addition, he defines the three key elements of true motivation.
- Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives
- Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters
- Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves
All three components represent inner drives that—when liberated and working together—result in happier, more productive, and more fulfilling lives.
In this session, we will summarize key points in Drive and explore how they relate to our mutual goals of mastering and promoting the principles and practices of client-centered planning, explore the evolution of our “human operating system” from Motivation 1.0 to Motivation 3.0, and discuss ways to integrate and leverage the three key elements of Motivation 3.0—Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose—into our interactions and planning work with clients.
