Employee Motivation: Surprising Research on What Makes Employees Give Their All

Duration: 60 minutes

Most bosses think they know what drives employee engagement. They believe factors such as challenging work, good pay and an occasional pat on the back are enough to win employee discretionary effort and loyalty.

Unfortunately, they’re missing half of the story – and research proves it.


Harvard Business School Director of Research Dr. Teresa Amabile conducted an exhaustive study of the relationships managers have with their people. The findings revealed that the #1 factor that drives employee engagement is the leader’s ability to “facilitate progress on meaningful work.” She calls this discovery the Progress Principle.

In this 60-minute program, Dr. Michael Brenner, who worked with Dr. Amabile to create the Progress Principle training program, will discuss the details of how to use this critical research in your organization to dramatically improve employee engagement. This is a must-attend for any leader regardless of industry, organizational level, or experience.
