Research shows that traditional market-oriented motivation differs from public service motivation, which compels individuals to serve the public good as its driving force. Understanding how to foster, maintain and enhance this motivation is crucial for employee satisfaction and organizational success, and can be especially challenging during periods of organizational transformation.

This inspiring event for executives will feature James L. Perry, Ph.D., from Indiana University, who will draw on decades of research to guide participants through the principles of public service motivation, its importance in nurturing a sense of purpose, and ways to align individual efforts with government-wide goals.

Participants will gain valuable insights and strategies on how to leverage and sustain passion and motivation for public service during periods of significant change.



  • James L. Perry, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Paul H. O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University


  • John Medcof, Lead Faculty, Canada School of Public Service
