Getting people to change: From carrots & sticks to making meaning – webinar

March 19
10 – 11 am

Last year Laura Putnam taught us how to get employees moving during her “Jumpstart Your Workplace” webinar. This year she’s back to dive into one of your favorite wellness topics: Intrinsic motivation. This webinar explores the million-dollar question in health promotion, namely: How do we get people to change?

During the session, you’ll:

  • Learn best practice motivational strategies from the field of education.
  • Discover how to replace the typical behaviorist approach to motivation (reward & punishment) with a so-called constructivist approach (create meaning).
  • Plan for applying this model to more effectively motivate employees in making lifestyle changes.

This webinar is for Trust members only.
