In this episode, Dan chats with Professor Richard Ryan, the co-developer of Self-Determination Theory (SDT), one of the most influential theories of human motivation. SDT underpins so much of our work here at Cut Through, so to be able to chat with Richard was indeed a treat!

In this conversation, Richard explains the fundamental requirements needed to ensure that people are "authentically" engaged, as opposed to merely complying with another's demands. 

You can find out more about Self Determination Theory here.
