Giving up a Saturday is not to be sneezed at, but thankfully the LIP not only enjoy each others company enough as well as learning from Eleanor Hayman of Illawarra FlameTree Coaching that it was well worth the sacrifice.
Building on the previous workshop on Adaptive Leadership, this session focused on what motivates people, how to identify the degrees and barriers of motivation in ourselves as well as our teams, and what we can do have an impact when motivation is low.
Eleanor introduced us to the concept of 'flow' where you can be absorbed in a task and hours fly by, and this is where our skill level and motivation are equally high and we perform at our best.
The session was concluded by the distribution of the second part of our DISC profiles, and the rooms went silent, punctuated by outbursts of surprise or agreement when something was read that really resonated or we found surprising.
Rod Clark gave a great vote of thanks to Eleanor, who deserved the gratitude for another workshop well presented. Rod also issued a challenge for his fellow LIP to make a further sacrifice and review their clothing for some warm items to donate to the Warming Hearts project.
Flagstaff are collecting for St Vinnies and items can be dropped into the Flagstaff Collection bins at their Unanderra Headquarters, or by contacting Rod for pick up. Rod will also happily accept donations at the upcoming LIP events including coffee this week. Rod didn't need 6 hoodies and he challenges you to make the same donation.
