What is a MicroTrigger?
Subtle, Seemingly Unimportant Communications
Everyone has a MicroTrigger
For over 20 years, Ivy Planning Group has been conducting research into these subtle behaviors and what is clear is that no one is immune from having a MicroTrigger. What MicroTriggers have in common is they all set off a response in an individual that can negatively impact productivity and engagement in the workplace. That is why being aware of each other's MicroTriggers, as well as the MicroTriggers that we send out to others, will go a long way towards increasing team morale and workplace productivity.
"Unconscious bias helped me to understand that I have preferences. MicroTriggers has taught me how those biases actually show up in my behaviors. Bravo!" - Karen M.

Imagine a scenario where your manager (the SENDER) enters a meeting and greets everyone in the room (the OBSERVERS),except you (the RECEIVER).
