The Motivation Loop Acceptance and maximization of change is a leadership role anyone in an organization can play. Help people become more comfortable with change and understand that it’s often a matter of when, not if, things change. This conversation addresses the need for change, the reasons for change, and how to get buy-in for that change. WHAT YOU’LL BE COVERING • Discuss motivation and how it is generated by action. • Look at the 3 reasons people change behaviours and general attitudes toward change. • Examine the purpose for change by looking at 3 probable outcomes. • Cover reminiscing—the advantages, the drawbacks, and how we should do so moving forward.
