The truth about motivation and why it beats capability presented by Mark Oliver

3:30pm Wednesday, 27 January 2021
5:00pm Wednesday, 27 January 2021

Welcome to 2021 an the first ILP Masterclass for the year.  This year we will again see a wide range of topics covered and facilitated by our fantastic members and friends.  We plan to continue to run these fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons, and at the same times as last year. 

While 2021 promises to be just as interesting and challenging as 2020, it will no doubt be different.  We will therefore monitor how the day and time is working for you and adapt if needed.  Any feedback is welcome – email Bill at

Mark will explain the 7 fundamental human motivations which underpin human behaviour and experience. He will go on to show how much they explain about the human condition and what is most important in life and work. Participants will go away with a model which they can apply in their own life to better understand why people do what they do, and how this understanding can help them be more aware, as well as better influence and lead others.
