“I found Steve’s Intrinsic Motivation Discovery Workshop to be a tour de force of ideas that I could immediately put into practice. It opened my eyes to why I do what I do at work and how I can leverage my strengths as well as mediate and improve in other areas.”

David Allison, Visitor Programs Manager at Denver Museum of Nature and Science


“To say that Steve Tonkin is onto something important in his work about intrinsic motivation is an understatement. His insights into relational dynamics in the workplace, together with his ability to identify the factors that truly motivate us as professional individuals, result in an immediate increase in organizational effectiveness. I am convinced that his method results in increased staff retention, a strengthening of team work, increased morale, and higher productivity. If you are looking to improve the functioning of your organization in any or all of these areas, I recommend that you consult with Steve without hesitation.”

Richard, NFP Executive Director


“Steve facilitated a session with our Executive Board recently. We are working towards a national launch of a program to help connect and educate people about invisible disabilities. Our goal was to understand our team’s strength areas and how we could maximize our collective efforts. The technique of Intrinsic Motivation was an invaluable source of information for each of us personally and gave insight about our total team. This is extremely valuable as we move forward in a cooperative, focused direction.”
 Rob Germundson – Executive Treasurer

“Steve helped me go way beyond what I though was possible. In a matter of months I went from an underemployed engineer to a very successful energized consultant! Steve helped me understand and acknowledge my true motivations and showed me how to make better business decisions and career path choices. He encouraged me to pursue strategic alliances and partnerships with other professionals in new and creative ways which opened up incredible opportunities. In a matter of months I was working on exciting new projects with a fresh cast of colleagues who are equally enthusiastic and respectful of what each person brings to the table. I am glad I met Steve. He has a unique ability to quickly assess a person’s unique set of circumstances and offer a clear perspective. Although I did not realize it at the time, his insight and advice was much needed and he was instrumental to guiding me toward a more positive future!”
