Thriving Together: Boosting the well-being and performance of members and volunteers through the science of motivation
Randall Smith and Sophia Zaia. PowerLabs
Organizers worldwide are using the science of motivation to create the conditions for deep learning, commitment, creativity, and performance required to achieve purpose in complex and uncertain political environments. This exclusive PowerLabs webinar is an introduction to the science of motivation and discover practical methods applicable in most organizing contexts. The organizers are achieving extraordinary outcomes by creating environments that support members in meeting the universal psychological needs for autonomy, relatedness, and competence. Competence is our need to feel successful and effective in the things we do. It's fulfilled when we feel like we're growing in our skills, abilities, and knowledge. Focusing on these shared needs unlocks a pathway to greater well-being, deeper engagement, and improved performance within our movements and organizations.
