What makes a job interesting? How can you motivate people to do more? How can you keep your team happy? These are the questions that anyone in a leading role asks. What motivates people is a question that has intrigued humanity for a long time. What makes this subject crucially important is that once you know what motivates people, you can benefit in several ways:

  • You understand people better and as a result can create an environment that is more ideal for them.
  • You can influence people based on what motivates them to change their behaviour towards a desired direction.
  • You can learn to motivate yourself, so you can become more productive and satisfied.

All three are so useful and important in life that the topic deserves a significant amount of focus. This course aims to provide a structure that can be used to address all of the above three areas.

The course is full of case studies and examples. Many principles are presented along with a report of representative or significant studies that support them. The aim is to help people memorise the practical guidelines in this course using association. The studies also show why the topic on motivation is quite complex. At times, certain established practices on motivating people sound fine until of course a significant study uncovers what really happens when that technique is used; sometimes leading to surprising and very interesting results.

This course is based on the latest research in psychology and sociology and provides useful guidelines to implement the findings from these studies and apply it to people you want to lead and motivate.

The course comes with a variety of exercises so delegates can get a chance to apply what they learn during this course to their workplace environment. The course can be used for any context where you need to motivate and energise people.
