Think Club -The Science of Ownership
Thu. 17 November 2016, 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm AEST
The last Brisbane Think Club for 2017
We know there's someone in your office who has already started the Christmas countdown, so before the years over, we have a cracking event to share with you.....
We are pumped to again be partnering with our pragmatic friends at University of Queensland for this Think Club event!
The Science of Ownership
What would it mean if your people took a greater level of ownership in their work?
And importantly, how do we actually make this happen?
Lifting workforce engagement rates continues to be a focus for many organisations, challenging the old paradigms around reward and recognition to bring out the best in people; and so we should. Whenever we apply an external reward or rule, it inherently reshapes behaviour, often for the poorer. Fundamentally most people want to turn up to work to do a great job. So how do we allow them to bring their very best? Create a deep sense of ownership, that’s how.
It makes perfect sense to have people turn up to work ‘treating it like they own it’ but how do we actually make that happen? What is ownership, and how does it actually work at work? At our latest Think Club, Behavioural Scientist Darren Hill (co-founder of the Behaviour and Motivation Strategy Company Pragmatic Thinking) will take us through the Science of Ownership; what it is, why it matters, and how to lead it.
In this session you’ll explore;
Why ownership is worth having in the first place
Practical ways to drive ownership in your people
How suffering, safety and stepping back all help ownership
The dark side of creating ownership (it’s not all peaches n’ cream y’know!)
