Just stop motivating me!

As we have all experienced, employee engagement can make or break a team. Many leaders complain that they don’t have enough time for themselves to be productive as they are always pushing and motivating their staff. According to sports and business psychologist, Gavin Freeman, organisations are asking the wrong questions. He believes individuals are always motivated but it is our underlying psyche which determines our ability to maintain or change our approach to motivation.

Why do we act the way we do? How can we create smarter work environments which will enable motivation to flourish? What is needed for employees to change the way they work?

Join Gavin as he delves into the human consciousness to uncover a wider motivational continuum which determines our ability to maintain or change how we approach work.
His second book, Just Stop Motivating Me, is the basis of this presentation and is the product of many interviews with various CEO and professionals (including the CEO of Deloitte Australia and Nelson Mandela’s personal bodyguard). The results are quite extraordinary and reveal why we should stop motivating people and instead create an environment where workers choose to motivate themselves and use their discretionary effort to benefit their organisation as a whole.

You will be given a questionnaire designed to help you understand your own motivational mindset and how to progress from there.

Well being the integrated way

(from hamstring to heartstring).

Have you ever wondered why its so hard to get healthy, fit and possible lose those couple of kilos. The simple reason is we don’t take an integrated approach to our wellbeing. We look at the various elements independently and then hope it all magically comes together. This presentation explores our integrated health and wellbeing model and provides individuals with a pathway they can easily follow.  The beauty of the presentation is the simplicity of the message and the ease in which you can make decisions.


Presentation includes

  • Insights into our stress response
  • Description of our Health and Wellbeing Model
  • Explore the impacts of different foods and how we respond
  • Learn to sleep like a baby
  • Exercise – understand the impact of performing without conditioning
