Attendees will learn methodologies to create an environment where people feel motivated to do their best work. 

As we assume new responsibilities that come with our leadership roles, one of the most magical discoveries we make is our ability to effectively empower and build up others, and ourselves, through successful motivation. Whether working with the highest performers or ones with room for growth, smart leaders are constantly contemplating how to engage their teams and motivate them to succeed. Too often we rely on external rewards - like motivating a horse to run with the carrot on a stick - yet these can only work for so long. The people and projects we lead require different motivation styles and, as a leader, we have an obligation to customize our approach to maximize each individual's intrinsic motivation. In this session, we'll explore the building blocks of successful communication to enhance individual motivation and team engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the three types of motivation.
  • Determine specific strategies to create an environment where intrinsic motivation is especially high.
  • Reflect on current leadership practices, and apply new theories to enhance personal leadership.
  • Establish a stronger community of like-minded individuals and rising thought-leaders.
  • Develop an action plan to implement key lessons into project leadership.
