Work Expo – Management 3.0

How do you visualize a purpose? How do we share a vision? How to tell your story? Often, organizations have a vision and a mission statement (for their organization, product, or team), but words don’t convey the message. What you should do is show, don’t tell!

“Insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Although said and proven in research, showing gratitude is a tremendous intrinsic incentive: this is essential to keep your employees motivated! Organizations should be as aware of intrinsic motivators as extrinsic motivators.

How can we achieve this?
