Need to Motivate Your Team (or Yourself?)

Spaces are still available for this class at Waubonsee College!   

This is one of my favorite DDI courses. Previous participants have found the ideas to be fresh, innovative, and practical. Class size will be small, you or your staff will have plenty of time to explore your specific needs.

Motivating Others 10/24, 8:00am-12:00pm
In today's fast-paced, global business environment, external forces are compelling companies to change their business practices to stay competitive. In this course, you will learn how to proactively create an environment in which people are highly motivated to perform. You will explore the three factors that affect the motivation of employees:  focused work, interpersonal support, and individual value.  

As a result of this course, you will be able to determine which factors are low in your individual workplace and emerge with both a plan of specific actions and the skills needed to build group and individual motivation. Fee includes: materials.
