August 8 2014 Meeting Presentation

Thank you to our Meeting Sponsors!


    Passion + Motivation = Success

    November 14, 2014 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    This presentation explores the connection between passion, motivation, and success. We all have the experience of being excited about something initially, and then losing that excitement over time. Learning more about motivation can help us keep ourselves and those around us motivated as we work toward shared goals.

    Participants will learn about the science of motivation and how passion, autonomy and mastery are the keys to lighting the fire of internal motivation, which is much stronger than external motivation. Each participant will leave knowing more about what most motivates them and the people they work with. This can applied to volunteers, donors, and coworkers.
