Created in collaboration with researcher and author Daniel Pink, the Drive Workshop examines the three elements of true motivation – autonomy, mastery and purpose, and offers smart and surprising techniques for implementing them within your workplace and organization.

The workshop is designed to capture the essence of motivation and employee engagement in an exciting and practical manner. It can change the way your organization operates immediately. The potential of higher levels of engagement, motivation, innovation, change, and reduced turnover is amazing.

Designed to produce the maximum amount of learning within a compact period of time, the hands-on Drive Workshop uses industry proven examples and case studies to provide strategies, tools and action plans you can implement in your workplace.


This course is for anyone who works in an organization, leads a team, owns or runs a business, is a marketer, communicator, sales professional or other business leader.
