Inspiring Employee Motivation

Bookmark and Share

Everyone is motivated by different things. How do you find out what motivates your employees and then use that knowledge to inspire them to optimal productivity?

This module focuses on helping you successfully motivate employees by measuring and building the motivation levels of your employees, as well as creating and maintaining a motivating work environment. By discussing why traditional carrot and stick motivational models are not effective in producing long term productivity and engagement, participants will learn that employees must have autonomy, mastery and purpose to be motivated. The class draws on key principles and scientific research from Daniel Pink’s book, “Drive”. Participants will apply these principles to their own work situations.
