Motivation + Leadership = Success

May 14, 2024

What motivates us individually and as a team to achieve inclusive, responsive and equitable justice in Saskatchewan? This was the question posed by Jayne Mallin, Legal Aid Saskatchewan’s CEO, at a recent Learn to Lead, Lead to Learn forum with LAS staff.

The discussion referenced Dan Pink’s theory that people intrinsically want to do things that matter. Pink, author of “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us” (2009), says the three elements of motivation are autonomy, mastery and purpose. Jayne engaged attendees with the following questions:

  • How many people think money plays a role in what motivates them?
  • How much autonomy do you have in your day-to-day work?
  • Who feels they have sufficient opportunity to attain mastery in their role?
  • Who wants to be part of building a more inclusive, responsive and equitable justice system in Saskatchewan?

Legal Aid Saskatchewan’s Learn to Lead, Lead to Learn forum is an engaging discussion period where different leadership topics are explored and debated amongst employees. As champions for access to justice, it is essential for our team to listen to each other's insights and express ideas in a safe and supportive forum. The Learn to Lead, Lead to Learn discussions benefit our organizational culture and staff engagement. We are a purpose-driven team producing exceptional outcomes!
