Motivation Training: Motivating Your Workforce

It’s no secret that employees who feel they are valued and recognized for the work they do are more motivated, responsible, and productive. This one-day workshop will help supervisors and managers create a more dynamic, loyal, and energized workplace. It is designed specifically to help busy managers and supervisors understand what employees want, and to give them a starting point for creating champions.

This workshop will help you:

  • Identify what motivation is

  • Describe common motivational theories and how to apply them

  • Learn when to use different kinds of motivators

  • Create a motivational climate

  • Design a motivating job
