Speaker: Pia-Maria Thorén
Subject: There is only intrinsic motivation
Title:Inspiration Director & Agile People Coach @GreenBullet

Pia-Maria will be talking about motivation & basic desires and how it affects motivation. There is really only intrinsic motivation - the concept of extrinsic motivation is flawed, since all motivation comes from within, even the motivation to get a new title, higher position or higher salary. It's the basic desires Status and sometimes also the need for Power that comes into play here. Pressing the right "buttons" in different people will make them go that extra mile. The question is how this links to goals and performance?

Pia-Maria is also running a workshop on Agile HR during the Business Agility Education Week in NYC in March: Come and be one of the first people in the world get get the brand new ICP-TAL certification.
