Show Notes

Professor richard Ryan has been named as one of the most important Psychologists of the modern era, and for good reason. He is the co-founder of Self-Determination Theory (SDT), the world's most researched theory of motivation with huge relevance to anyone who is a parent, teacher, coach or leader - or anyone who wants to achieve their goals.

In the session, we explore the relevance of SDT for everyday life across a number of different domains, and Richard reveals what we can learn from his fascinating profiling of serial killers.

Strap yourselves in for a tour de force on motivation from a true leader in his field.
