About this session

Much has been written about the core of human motivation. Yet for many organizations, motivating their teams is still a challenge.  This is because the social and behavioural research recommends certain soft skills that are not only a major paradigm shift from what most people are used to, but in some senses, counterintuitive.

Since the turn of the 20th century, most organizations have relied on external motivators to entice (and dissuade) their team members. That is because for non-cognitive, factory-line jobs, stick-and- carrot rewards and punishments do work. But for the technology-based economy of the 21st century which requires non-linear, cognitive functions, external motivations fail time and time again. The key is for organizations to create the environments where intrinsic motivations flourish.

In this presentation, Casey Miller, President of Six and a Half Consulting, will give a framework for thinking about intrinsic motivation and the ingredients needed for its success: purpose, trust, and relatedness. Recounting from real-world examples and personal experiences as a corporate consultant, Casey will deliver participants with practical tools for engaging their teams and creating an intrinsically motivated workplace.

Casey holds a dual Master’s degree in Public Administration and another in Theological Studies from Harvard University. Following graduate school, Casey spent many years in Mexico City where he helped found and grow a waste-to- Energy Company, AdaptiveARC. Later, in both San Francisco and Vancouver, he worked with emerging tech-companies as a cultural strategist and business development.

Casey also has significant experience in the non-for- profit sectors, having founded a veterans charity, the Long Road Home Project, which helped veterans transition into civilian life, raise money for direct-service veterans charities, and raise awareness for PTSD. While at ChildFund International, a global NGO that helps some of the world's most vulnerable children, Casey helped create organizational cultural and fundraising strategies that aligned the organization across the 29 countries it serves.

Throughout his experiences in the for profit and not-for- profit sectors, both in Canada, the US, and Mexico, Casey has seen a pattern: that the best of strategies die at the hands of an uninspired workplace. As an expert in leadership development, Casey is charismatic and energetic, lending his clients perspectives on execution, team building, and ultimately, how to create workplaces where employees are intrinsically motivated to come to work. Hoping to help others lead more purposeful lives, Casey is also the author of Six and a Half: a story about roads, rashes, and redemption, a book written about his experiences on a bike, alone, riding across the United States.
