Keynote Speaker: Mastering Motivation with Whitney Warne, Emotional Intelligence Consulting Coach & Founder of Ivory House Photography and Evoke EQ

Motivation is not a one-size-fits-all method. This interactive session will begin with a dialogue around extrinsic vs. intrinsic motivation. We then transition to understanding and mastering the nine core intrinsic motivations using the Enneagram as a guide to how to communicate with our teammates in ways they can actually hear. Participants leave with a deeper understanding of who they are, and who they get to be to motivate others.
