Talent Development

A Better Way to Motivate (TD2550)

Thu, 3 Mar 2022 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description: 'If you finish the project on time without any errors, pizza for everyone!' 'Please focus on work during work hours, or there will be consequences.' Have you heard, or even used, these tactics? We all have, but it's probably not a surprise to hear they don't work. The truth is, every individual on your team is internally motivated, just maybe not in the way that you want.

In this workshop, discover why traditional carrot-and-stick motivation is ineffective and learn alternate methods to drive engagement and success. Also learn what it takes to nurture a sense of purpose and belonging among your team and colleagues.

  • Determine motives and identify the impact of personal motivations on work.
  • Understand why old motivation practices are not successful.
  • Acquire new motivation techniques.

Type of Information: Receiving data and practice
