What really makes people happy, motivated, productive, and creative at work?
In Teresa Amabile's latest research, she's discovered the answer. It’s the Progress Principle: Of all the things that managers can do to engage their employees, the single most important is facilitating progress in meaningful work. Yet only 5% of managers realize the power of progress. Analyzing nearly 12,000 daily diaries from over 200 knowledge workers, Amabile discovered eleven specific actions that managers can take to catalyze progress and nourish employees’ motivation. Through this presentation, you will learn how to leverage the progress principle to achieve the dual goals of supporting employee well-being and igniting organizational innovation.
