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.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
To begin, participants will explore motivation through a fun activity.
Next, we will look at three everyday objects that represent three approaches to motivation: the carrot, the whip, and the plant.
During this session, participants will explore Maslow’s and Herzberg’s theories of motivation. They will also review their pre-assignment.
Goal setting is an important part of motivation. This session will look at the SPIRIT acronym for setting goals.
During this session, participants will identify their personal values, which will help them understand their motivators.
This session will look at the reinforcement theory, also called the behavioral theory, of motivation. Expectancy theory and McClelland’s needs theory will also be discussed.
During this session, participants will work on several motivational case studies.
This session will explore methods of designing (or redesigning) motivating jobs. We will also share the ten things you can do to motivate employees on a daily basis.
At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
