Join PP editor Rob Kingsbury for a live Q&A with Michelle Hoskin, MD of Standards International, on the Power of Self-Motivation.
Date and time: Wednesday 15 July, 11.30am.
Michelle has over 20 years’ experience working alongside some of the world’s most successful financial services organisations. She is called into firms to help with develop their professionalism and operational excellence, at the heart of which, she says, is having every member of the team self-motivated, both for their own benefit and for that of the business.
As well questions of our own, we are looking for questions from paraplanners to ask her on this topic. So, if you have questions about self-motivation in general, or maybe how to stay motivated when working from home, or when back in an office where new rules apply, if you’re looking to motivate a team to adapt and achieve their best in the new and changing environment, then please email them to [email protected] and Rob will pose as many of them as possible to Michelle during the session.
Here’s what Michelle says on the subject:
“We’ve all been going through an unprecedented change to the way we live and work. When you’ve been stuck indoors for days on end you certainly learn a lot about yourself. You get to know your likes, dislikes, the things and people that you cherish and those that you don’t. Having gone through this process of learning myself, I can honestly tell you that I am definitely coming out the other end as a more self-aware person and my habits and behaviours are going to be sure to reflect this new version of me.
“I believe that our reserve of self-motivation is going to make the difference between those who will only just survive this crazy time we’re living through right now and those who will thrive despite it.
“According to Richard M. Ryan and Edward L. Deci’s January 2000 paper in American Psychologist (‘Self-Determination Theory and the Facilitation of Intrinsic Motivation, Social Development, and Well-Being’) “Human beings can be proactive and engaged or, alternatively, passive and alienated, largely as a function of the social conditions in which they develop and function.”
“I want to look at what this means and more importantly, what it means to today’s professional paraplanners? Let’s take a dive in and explore how to leverage the potential of ourselves!”
