Mandatory doesn't Motivate!

Our theme this month is motivation to celebrate the launch of our 3rd ebook - Learning - Motivation in just One Minute. Below we share a snapshot of its contents, focusing on the frequently challenging topic of running mandatory information and learning events.

Over the years, we've gained substantial experience of working with people who don't want to be at an event. So here's 5 ideas we use as often as we can - ideas which help motivate audiences to turn up, to take part, to take action!

Stop Press

We're often asked to suggest useful resources, so as we've just joined forces with Amazon, we've immediately added 18 books to the website.

We'll be adding more, so bookmark this link now for a fast route to resources which feed brains and motivate people to act.

1. Coach the organisation/ event sponsor to avoid words like 'mandatory'; we have found words such as 'essential' and 'important' are better. 2. Have input into the administration and drafting of the invitation to the event. 3. Have prior contact with personalised invitations and emails; a phone call works wonders! 4. Value what knowledge or information people will bring to the event as well as how the learning will be of benefit to them. 5. Empathise with the concerns people have, and build rapport by sharing an appropriate story. The sales technique 'feel, felt, found' is a great one to use here.
