How to use Self Determination Theory to increase ownership in self-organizing teams.

February 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm CET

Virtual Event

In this workshop you will learn how to increase motivation and ownership in self-organizing teams by applying Self Determination Theory to fulfill needs of autonomy, competence and connection.

For every leader, manager, scrummaster, product owner who wants to get things done in a self-managing team: How do you motivate your employees to take ownership, responsibility and initiative?

The self-determination theory explains it is not about the quantity of motivation, but about the quality of motivation. Motivating employees with rewards or fear of punishment will backfire. Telling people what to do isn’t self-management. So WHAT are you supposed to do?

In this workshop you will learn how to apply Self-Determination Theory to fulfill the three core needs for intrinsic (or autonomous) motivation. With this, you can:

– Create conditions for co-creation.
– Increase ownership in self-managing teams.
– Give feedback that motivates.
– Get things done without command and control.

After a short talk we will have a brainstorm and some role play to practice!
