Dear Career Coaches:

We are delighted to announce that our Career Coach SIG speaker for Wednesday, April 13, 2016 will be Mr. Doug Walker, presenting “If They Don’t Wanna, They Ain’t Gonna!” from 12:00-1:00 PM ET via phone (425) 440-5100 PIN 093980# or via the web at:

(Note: You will receive 1 ICF Resource Development CCE credit for attending the call live and must be present for the full call)


Program Description:

Let’s face it!  Our success depends on others.  But if they don’t wanna, they ain’t gonna.  It’s not just millennials who can’t be “made” to do something.  No one can.  Some people come to us where they already PREwanna do what’s needed.  But when people don’t, how do we get them to wanna do more, faster, better than ever?  Or how do we get them to REwanna engage constructively after their fire seems to have gone out?  When enhanced engagement and effectiveness is desirable… when greater “buy-in” and enthusiastic effort are necessary, since we can’t MAKE them do it, how do we get then to wanna do it?


You will learn:

  • Clarity on Human Motivation/Control
  • 2 Conversation Templates to get people to Wanna improve:
    1. Relationships
    2. Results


About Our Speaker:

Doug Walker, M.S. is the creator of the A-ha! Performance Map of Intrinsic Motivation Points™ and the accompanying set of Leadership and Management Applications for Preventing, Solving and Recovering from personnel challenges. He is the author of A-ha! PERFORMANCE: Building & Managing A Self-Motivated Workforce™ (Wiley, July 2007). A highly sought after key-note speaker, trainer, executive coach, and management consultant, Doug is widely recognized as a leading expert in intrinsic motivation management. 

Doug established his initial model more than 10 years ago. It continues to prove extremely powerful in helping leaders and managers understand that they can only influence and inspire, not control their employees into optimal performance. As leaders and managers evolve their paradigm from a belief in external controls to an understanding of internal controls, they discover an array of tools and applications that are so effective they not only produce desired results, they reduce stress for both manager and employee.

Doug’s management and coaching approach was adopted as the core meta-model of Coaching for Organizational Excellence, the Executive Coaching Certificate Program at San Diego State University. Mr. Walker served on the board of advisors and taught his approach as the anchor course for that program as well. He also taught and presented his model in a variety of courses at the University of California, San Diego, and USD. 

Mr. Walker now shares his models, practices and insights with owners of small to medium size businesses in his capacity as Manager of HR Services for Insperity’s San Diego office. Prior to that, he served for nearly eight years as the managing consultant responsible for the day-to-day operations at the San Diego office of DBM, an international career transition management consulting firm, with more than 200 offices worldwide.  Doug has served or presented for a wide variety of organizations including Sony, Qualcomm, Hewlett Packard, San Diego County, Profil Clinical Research Institute, San Diego Police and Sherriff’s Departments, SANDAG, Inc. Magazine’s Growing Your Company conference, the Professional Coaches and Mentors Association, the Society for Human Resource Managers (SHRM) and more.  

Doug has a Masters degree in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling and a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology.  Doug has an extensive background and professional network, having taught and presented in Australia, Canada, Japan and throughout the United States.

“Doug Walker has been teaching his A-ha! Performance Intrinsic Motivation Points model and coaching processes to Managers, Business Owners, Human Resources, Training, Organization Development and Sales Professionals in the San Diego State University, Professional Certificate Program in “Coaching For Organizational Excellence” for over six years.  He easily conveys how the brain receives input and produces behavior in a way that allows business professionals to quickly grasp and effectively use it as internal and external coaches, managers and consultants.  Our students take his information and make big changes in their organizations and careers.  In exit interviews, students overwhelmingly said this course was “transformational” for them. Doug is a master coach and teacher.”  Jordan Goldrich, LCSW, CEAP, San Diego State University
