Motivating Yourself and Others
Motivation is the process that accounts for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward the attainment of a goal. Intensity is concerned with how hard a person tries. This is the element most of us focus on when we discuss the topic of motivation. However, unless effort is channeled in a direction that benefits the organization, high intensity is no guarantee of favorable job-related performance outcomes. Quality of effort, therefore, is just as important as intensity of effort. Finally, persistence (how long a person can maintain effort) is equally important. A motivated person stays with a task long enough to achieve his or her goal.
Participants in this one-day workshop will be provided with their motivational profile and with solutions designed to address the most difficult motivational challenges. They will also acquire the know-how required to develop the profile of their team.
