Proven Motivational Skills for the Workplace

Best-Practice Skills for Motivating Team Members, Colleagues, Peers, and Bosses 

Motivation in the workplace comes and goes, both collectively and individually. And it is not easy for supervisors, team leaders, mangers, or senior leaders to keep their staffs motivating, particularly in today’s HVUCA world (Highly Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous).

Yet the benefits of increased motivation, for both employees and the organization are great:

    • Increased employee engagement
    • Improved morale
    • Increased innovative thinking and solutions
    • Higher, better results
    • Friendlier work environment (with reduced sick leave and lower employee turnover)
    • More energized staff
    • Quicker and higher levels of buy-in to change initiatives

Survey after survey constantly shows low levels of employee engagement and motivation in the workforce. Is this the fault of employees or of leaders? In fact, neither. The true root cause is that very few leaders are trained in motivational skills, almost as if organizations believe keen motivational techniques come automatically when a person becomes a leader. 

Motivational Skills Virtual Workshop

Motivation is personal; it varies from person to person. Additionally, most of the factors that increase team or individual motivation are corporate culture, or workplace climate, related, rather than monetary rewards or special privileges.  

This virtual leadership workshop provides a range of best-practice skills for motivating team members, peers, colleagues, and even bosses. Leaders will learn that future success depends on keeping staff motivation high most of the time and that motivation techniques cannot be universally applied across a team or work group.

This workshop is delivered as two 90-minute interactive virtual sessions, preferably on consecutive days. It is designed for leaders at all levels of your organization – first-time leaders, team leaders, supervisors, managers, and senior leaders.

What participants will learn:

  • Understanding the challenges in motivating themselves and others
  • Benefits of increased motivation to team members and the organization
  • In-depth knowledge of their own motivational profile
  • Explanation of McClelland’s Theory of Motivation and how this applies to the workplace
  • Tips on using McClelland’s Theory of Motivation to motivate direct reports, colleagues, and others
  • How to profile the motivation needs of others
  • How to create a plan of action with someone they find hard to motivate
  • How and why motivation increases buy-in and commitment 

What’s Included

Each participant receives:

  • Motivational Needs Self-Assessment
  • Participant’s Guide 
  • Personal Action Plan template
  • PDF of 8 Keys to Great Leadership: Leadership Lessons and Tips from Gibbs, Yoda & Capt’n Jack Sparrow
