Agile Austin Meetup: Coaching SIG – Understanding what motivates individuals

February 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm

Topic: Understanding what motivates individuals

An important aspect of coaching is understanding and excelling at how to motivate individuals and teams, but how do you do it? Another primary objective of a coach is to help individuals solve their problems, but how? What questions should you ask? What actions should you take?
Join us in February to review tools that can help coaches and managers understand how to uniquely motivate their people and also assist them in solving their own problems. Some of the tools we’ll review were created by Kelley Freeman, a principal of The Align Group, an organizational psychology firm that evaluates and enhances the linkages between a company’s key components—values, mission, vision, strategy, plans, leadership, teams and skills—to ensure that it directs maximum force toward achieving its critical business objectives.
