The Science of Satisfaction: the Data around Personal and Professional Fulfillment

Virtual Event
Wednesday, October 25, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (Eastern Time)

The personal and professional spheres of our lives are interconnected in countless ways. To position leaders for success, we must help them find satisfaction in all aspects of their lives and support them as they establish healthy balance in their lives – personally, professionally, mentally, and socially.

Satisfaction may appear to be highly subjective, but new MRG data reveals patterns in the way highly satisfied individuals approach the world. By discovering where satisfied (and dissatisfied) individuals focus their energy, we can uncover and address the root causes of deep dissatisfaction – which, whether it’s personal, professional, or both, can be a barrier to growth.

The Relevance of Emotional Intelligence: Finding the Motivation Behind EQ

Virtual Event
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (Eastern Time)

When the concept of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) rose to prominence, assessing it had an irresistible appeal. And while many continue to find it valuable, many coaches have found that there are some limitations. The EQ can reveal interesting individual characteristics – but how does motivation relate to these characteristics? And how does a coach take these very personal insights and use them effectively to support and guide teams?

When traditional EQ assessments are paired with an assessment that reveals deeper motivations, a more complete profile of the individual is revealed. Motivational assessments also help uncover underlying tensions and conflicts, which often give rise to some of the observations measured using EQ tools.

In this one-hour session, MRG’s David Ringwood will explore the benefits of pairing an EQ assessment with MRG’s Individual Directions Inventory (IDI). Topics include:

  • Applying EQ learnings to more effectively influence behavior
  • Tackling the challenge of transitioning from individual conversations to team interventions
  • Thinking about EQ and motivation in the context of team dynamics
  • Expanding the options available to you as a coach or facilitator

Preparing for the Millennial Era: a Data-Driven Look at What Motivates the Next Generation of Leaders

Virtual Event
Tuesday, December 5, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (Eastern Time)

The conversation around Millennials in the workplace has been so prolonged that it is tempting to dismiss it as overhyped and not worth more exploration. After all, how different can these generations really be?

Very different, according to exclusive empirical research from MRG. The motivations of the generation known as Millennials (b. 1977-1990) are profoundly different than those who have come before. What’s more, Generation Z (b. after 1991) looks to be exhibiting the same patterns to further extremes. So there’s no going back – the behaviors and motivations you see in young leaders today will continue to influence and fundamentally change your workplace for years to come.

To be ready for this shift, you need to move beyond anecdotal observations and dive deep into the empirical data that indicates what motivates Millennials, Generation Z, and beyond.

In this 60-minute session, you’ll get access to the exclusive and often surprising findings that MRG has collected from thousands in the Millennial and Z generations, and gain the understanding you need to prepare for their influence, including:

  • Managing differing expectations for advancement
  • Supporting an unprecedented sense of immediacy and need for knowledge
  • Overcoming assumptions about younger leaders (hint: innovation may not come as easily as you think)
  • Understanding the practical implications of these new trends on an organization’s culture

Join MRG’s David Ringwood for an exploration of the surprising data surrounding the generations currently on the path to leadership.
