Course Description

Most people know what they don’t want; fewer truly know what they do want. As such, many people live a life by default, rather than a life by design and sometimes find themselves unmotivated and disengaged in life and work.

In an increasingly busy environment we are all being asked to “do more with less”. But there is a lot more that we can control in our life, work and finances than we are giving ourselves permission for. There are things we can’t control sure and rather than waste time and energy on what we can’t control, the key is getting real clarity on what we can control, so we can take more responsibility and be more resilient.

Section 2: Your Motivational Drivers - The 4 Step Process
03:40

What are they 7 motivational drivers?

In this section you will be introduced to the 7 drivers of motivation, in no particular order as they all differ in priority from one person to the next.

02:09

In this lecture you will identify your top 3 motivational drivers for right now.

01:14

Having identified your top 3 motivational drivers, the next important step is to 'benchmark' by scoring out of 10, how well you feel you are going in each of those drivers.

01:38

In this lecture you will design and put in place, strategies that you can implement, that will improve your top drivers.

HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR MOTIVATIONAL DRIVER STRATEGIES

It can be challenging coming up with your own strategies to improve your score in each motivational driver. Most people know what they don't want, fewer know what they do want in order to improve their own situation. Sometimes we are just too close to it to see 'the trees from the forest'.

However, congratulations if you have attempted to come up with some strategies, ideally three (3) for each of your top motivational drivers.

If you are a little stuck or simply want to check, cross-reference or enhance your strategies jump ahead to:

SECTION 4: MOTIVATIONAL DRIVER - ENHANCEMENT STRATEGIES

To aid you further, I have run through a whole range of different ideas for each motivational driver. You only need to watch the introduction and the lessons for your individual top three (3) motivational drivers.

Then come back and continue creating your Motivational Driver plan by continuing on from LECTURE 5, STEP 3: STRATEGIES.

Instructor Biography

Ian Hutchinson, Life & Work Engagement Strategist, Founder @ Life by Design

For the past 20 years I have helped over 50,000 students/individuals as well as 100's of teams and organisations become happier, more motivated, engaged, fulfilled and on purpose through simple, easy-to-use innovative tools, worksheets & systems.

MY SPECIALISATIONS

  • * Employee Engagement & Motivation
  • * Employee-Driven Productivity
  • * Self-Leadership
  • * Work Life Balance
  • * Talent Maximisation
  • * Career Development
  • * Lifestyle Planning & Life Design


MY PHILOSOPHY

Central to my philosophy is helping people take more responsibility, and therefore control, of their own life and work motivations and engagement, by providing them with the thinking, systems and tools to get clarity in what they want both in life and work.

Most people know what they DON'T want; fewer truly know what they DO want. As such, many people live a life by default, rather than a life by design and sometimes find themselves unmotivated and disengaged in life and work.

In an increasingly busy world we are all being asked to “do more with less". But there is a lot more that we can control in our life, work and finances than many of us are giving ourselves permission for. There are things we can't control sure, but the key is getting real clarity on what we can control. I will show individuals and organisation how, simply and easily.

“Ian combines a deep knowledge of human motivation and behavioural change with real world practical processes to make change simple" Richard Hirst, Head of Organisational Development, 3 Mobile

MY CREDENTIALS

I have has a Bachelor of Business in Management and Marketing, and a Graduate Diploma in Psychology and have studied internationally in career development (which all combines makes me a very confused individual!)

My work has been profiled on national TV programs such as Reality Bites (ABC), Today Tonight (Channel 7) and The Today Show (Channel 9) and as well as in international print media, The New York Times.

In 2012, I was inducted into the Australian Professional Speakers Hall of Fame when he won the Educator Award of Excellence.

“Ian prompted transformational change in our organisation. He is a game-changer!"
Steve Rowe, HR Director, Pfizer

LIFE BY DESIGN

I founded Life by Design in 1997, and have grown to be one of Australia's most innovative human potential specialists. Whilst my head office is in Sydney, through Life by Design, I have helped individuals and organisations across the world.

For me, life is my life's work. I believe that one of the world's most easily fixed social problems is that many people lack direction in their lives and live a 'life by default' rather than a 'Life by Design'. Clarity of purpose dramatically improves our happiness and the ripple effect will benefit our communities and the world. The world's collective achievement of individuals fulfilling their purpose will propel this planet and its people towards a more purposeful and meaningful future.

“Ian made a difference to not only our team culture but also many individuals' personal lives. Highly recommended" Mike Goodall, General Manager, ANZ


THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

I have authored two books: 'People Glue: Engagement & Retention Solutions That Stick', '52 Strategies to Work Life Balance' and I am creator of 'meCentral', a world first Employee-Driven Productivity system (licensed in 5 countries) that simply and easily increases motivation and activates employee engagement responsibility at all organisational levels, from HR to People Leaders to employees.

My programs enable individuals and organisations to fully realise their potential by increasing engagement and motivation with quick win tools and sustainable systems.

MY EXPERTISE

I have worked globally (delivering in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East) and over two decades of local experience consulting to the majority of Australia's top 10 companies. These include organisations such as;

  • * Coca Cola
  • * Price Waterhouse Coopers
