Motivating Employees

Additional Speakers: 

Rae Lee, Missouri Training Institute (MTI), Business Trainer and Consultant

Description: 

Leaders know that employee motivation is the key to individual performance, team productivity, and maintaining a desired organizational culture, yet many leaders struggle with this.  Motivated employees exhibit a willingness to take on responsibilities, hold themselves accountable for their performance, and in turn, increase their own job satisfaction.  Come explore the topic of employee motivation and why the carrot and stick approach to energizing your employees just doesn’t work.

Take Aways:

In this professional development workshop we will define motivation and how it impacts employee performance, identify organizational behaviors that demotivate, contrast extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, and explore fundamental factors necessary for employee motivation.  Learn what you can do to create a work environment of motivated employees who consistently demonstrates a willingness to perform and achieve results.

Intended Audience:

Supervisors, managers, or program directors.
