Motivating Your Team Getting Your People to Do Things Willingly
As managers, we are required to not only efficiently organise the work of our team, but to also inspire and motivate them. But what does ‘motivate’ actually mean in practice? Motivation is the energy which drives us to get up in the morning, go to work and do the best job we can. It enables us to enjoy and gain fulfilment in our profession. Without motivation people stagnate, become de-focussed and unhappy at work, leading to reduced productivity and performance.
So how do you go about motivating your team, particularly in a tough economic environment where jobs are at risk and pay freezes in effect? In this course you will gain a deeper understanding of the psychology behind motivation in the workplace, for employees and managers.
You will learn and practice applying a range of models to help you identify practical strategies for motivating your direct reports, as individuals and as a team – particularly when pay and reward policies lie outside your sphere of authority.
By the end of this course you will:
- Understand why organisations care about motivated and engaged employees
- Gain an appreciation of the principal psychology behind motivation in the workplace
- Examine your own motivation level and how its fluctuations might affect your team
- Analyse your current team motivation challenges
- Use a range of practical psychological models to help solve real issues
