What Really Motivates (1)

For decades, the default method of motivating people used by business has been the "carrot and stick" approach - punishments and rewards. Contrary to popular thinking, incentive programs do not inspire people to give their best effort to their employer.

What Really Motivates takes a hard look at how well the traditional approach to motivating people is working and explores four alternative methods based on more recent scientific research. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to motivate themselves, and will learn four simple strategies to motivate others - at work, at home, and in the community.

Participants will learn:
  • The history and drawbacks of the traditional "carrot and stick" approach to motivation.
  • Four proven strategies to motivate yourself and others.
  • The most common management mistake and how to prevent yourself from making it.
  • How to recognize good performance and the unexpected benefits of doing this effectively.

Target Audience: 

All levels of managers, supervisors, and future supervisors
