BCCDA Free Upcoming Webinar: Intrinsic Motivation: The Key to Employee Engagement, Incredible Teams and Thriving Corporate Cultures.

Friday, September 22nd, 2017 at 12:00 pm PST

How can leaders and executives engage their employees so that their organizations are poised to adapt to the innovation that the future is already demanding? In his presentations, Casey A. Miller-President of Six and a Half Consulting, skillfully outlines the leadership tenants that promote what it takes for building  an engaged and inspired workplace.  Drawing from the work of the most prominent behavioural scientists and most recent advances in organization theory, Casey will show how to create intrinsically motivated workplaces —  those that centre on mastery, shared purpose, relatedness and trust.
