Session summary

For people to feel content in a role, they need to feel that they are progressing. But building that sense of progression isn’t easy, and you can often fall into the trap of providing rewards and benefits that don’t lead to satisfaction.

So how can you engender self-motivation? In this session, we’ll take a look at enabling autonomy, problem-solving mindsets, and how collaboration can contribute to team motivation.

You’ll leave this session with:

  • A toolkit for keeping teams motivated and engaged
  • Practical knowledge of how to give autonomy to your team
  • Strategies for building collaborative organisations
  • An understanding of how your engineers can have true impact in their roles
