Date: Friday, January 29th
Time: 10:00am -11:15am
(Virtual via Zoom – participants will get emailed the Zoom link after registration)
Presented by Shelly Vils Havel
Building and sustaining momentum in the workplace is vital to motivation, forward movement, and ultimately, to success. Whether large or small, wins motivate us all! Yet in our day to day routines, we seldom celebrate them. This is now more important than ever given our current environment. During this interactive workshop, we’ll identify ways to effectively recognize wins in the workplace, will learn how to reinforce successes, and identify resources for creating and sustaining momentum.

Summer Book Club featuring Drive by Dan Pink
Much of what we know about motivation is wrong. Tasks are either: (1) Algorithmic—you pretty much do the same thing over and over in a certain way, or (2) Heuristic—you have to come up with something new every time because there are no set instructions to follow. The carrot and stick approach to motivation is flawed.
In his 2009 book, “Drive,” Daniel Pink proposes a new motivational model that he believes is a better fit for today’s creative and innovative workplaces. Pink’s model focuses on enabling people to become intrinsically motivated – that is, using internal drives as a source of motivation. “Human beings have an innate inner drive to be autonomous, self-determined, and connected to one another. And when that drive is liberated, people achieve more and live richer lives.”
The Campus Supervisors Network had its 3rd annual Summer Book Club, where we explored Pink’s ideas of intrinsic motivation. We met throughout the summer, and talked about sections of the book Drive. Registrants received a complimentary copy of the book as well as study materials and supporting articles around the concept of intrinsic motivation.
Rich Gassen also did a presentation on Drive and Intrinsic Motivation at the UW-Madison Learning and Management Development (LMD) Conference November 13, 2019. For session notes and videos from that presentation, visit https://campussupervisorsnetwork.wisc.edu/lmd.
Some feedback from attendees of CSN’s 2017 Lynda.com training:
“Informative. Incorporated questions from audience members.”
“Nice to have an overview of how it can be used for staff development.”
“Good info – wish I’d had it sooner!”
“Good demo of courses and how to make staff accountable.”
“Well done; very knowledgeable.”
Want to be more involved in CSN? Our strength comes from the diverse experiences the members of our planning committee bring to the table, along with feedback from other campus supervisors regarding content for our website and events. The more people that provide input, the stronger our services and abilities to deliver on our mission. Please don’t hesitate to contact our committee chair at any time, and thank you for your involvement!
