Motivation for Engaging Leadership
Applying motivational theories and approaches for engaging leadership
In this course, we take a look at the main motivational theories and interpret them from the point of view of being an engaging leader. For example, applying Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in its original format will not be engaging for many employeesas it is a useful but, ultimately, simplistic motivation model.
Motivating people in the workplace is more complex than simply applying a five-tiered model where a person needs to satisfy each level before moving to the next. For example, if Maslow is accurate, why would someone leave the security of a paid job to start a new business? Why would a person on basic wage decide to pursue a qualification, diverting some of their much needed income to achieve this?
By the end of this course, particpants will be able to apply motivational techniques and theories in their workplace to build high performing teams. You will achieve this by:
- Understanding how each main theory can be applied in an engaging manner
- Knowing your individual team members and identifying their personal motivational needs
- Understanding that a 'one size' approach does not fit all
- Being able to interpret the various motivational theories in order to engage your team and drive productivity
- Understanding the dynamics between the workplace and the people that work within it
