Please select all options.

We’ve all heard the expression, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.” Similarly, you can encourage the members of your team to take certain actions but, when it comes to delivering their best at work, they need to motivate themselves.

As a leader, it’s your job to inspire and develop high levels of motivation, and to make sure that your team members are working passionately toward a shared vision of the future.

In this Skillbook, we explore the theory behind motivation, and identify how you can create a richer motivational environment for your people. Specifically, you’ll:
  • Learn about Maslow’s and Herzberg’s theories of motivation in the workplace.
  • Find out how effectively you’re motivating and satisfying members of your team.
  • Discover some tools to increase workplace motivation.
  • Develop a plan to put these strategies in place.
