It's no secret. Employees who feel they are valued and recognized for the work they do are more motivated, responsible, and productive than those who don't. This program will help supervisors and managers create a more dynamic and energized workplace. It is designed specifically to help busy managers and supervisors understand what employees want and to create a starting point for nurturing champions.
At this program's conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Describe what motivation is and how it improves productivity.
- Explain different theories of motivation and put them into practice.
- Set realistic goals with the people who report to them.
- Use the principles of reinforcement and expectancy to fire up a workforce.
The following outline highlights some of the course's key learning points. As part of your training program, we will modify content as needed to meet your business objectives. Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of the participant materials prior to the session(s).
