THE PROFIT PARADOX
Why meaning, not money ignites motivation peak performance and profits.
There is a Paradox at the very heart of business; that focusing on profit maximisation, motivates employees to maximise profits! Evidence and experience tell a very different story. Why? Over three quarters of employees at work simply don’t want to be there. This leads to low motivation, reduced productivity, clock watching, job hopping and unhappy customers. Conversely, in organisations where leaders focus on purpose and people as much as profit, employees are up to 100% more satisfied with their job, 3X more engaged, and up to 5X more loyal and share price returns of up to 14X the market average!
Whether you lead a team of 2 or 2,000, this inspiring and insightful keynote shows how great leaders apply three critical yet easily applied ‘Motivation Multipliers’ that neuroscience show will inspire your team to GO ALL IN!
