Product Details
Motivating employees to achieve their potential and keeping them motivated and tuned into the organization’s goals are significant challenges for businesses. Managers depend on their workers. Without motivation, there is no change, no learning, no action, and no results.

This workshop offers practical techniques, strategies, and exercises for managers to help them motivate unmotivated employees and to maintain higher levels of motivation with everyone else. This workshop allows participants to find out what really motivates themselves and others at work, how to create an atmosphere that pulls up employees rather than pushing them down, and how to identify what people really need and give rewards that meet workers’ unique needs. Once workers feel confident that their employer and their workplace are what they had desired and expected, they are ready to contribute above and beyond “the call to duty.”
