The topic of motivation is one we’ve been tracking and thinking about for years. That’s because it’s incredibly important for us as learning business leaders to understand the tremendous effect it has on learning. And when it comes to the topic of motivation, we continually find ourselves referring to Edward Deci’s, Why We Do What We Do: Understanding Self-Motivation, a book we strongly feel needs to be in the library of every learning business professional.

 In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff give a high-level look at the key elements of human motivation from Deci’s book. They discuss the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, the importance of finding the balance between the two, and the impact this all has on learning.

Are you prepared to face the potential disruptors to your learning business? Or – even better – are you positioning your organization to be the next big disruptor of your market?

Return guest Tom Morrison, CEO of Metal Treating Institute (MTI), is a highly-sought after keynote speaker, and author of multiple books, including most recently, The Dash: Making Sure Your Obituary Won’t Suck. And a key concept that he speaks about is around the idea of “uberization” – a term based on the highly successful market disruptor that we all know, Uber.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Tom about the concept of uberization including how it applies to learning businesses and how to avoid being “uberized”. He also talks about what MTI is doing with their highly successful e-learning and certificate programs to solidify their niche in the market.
