There’s an old saying that says you can lead a horse to water but you cannot force it to drink; it will drink only if it’s thirsty. 


As it turns out, people aren’t all that different.  We’re most likely to do what we want to do or what we’re motivated to do.  Whether it is to be a top-producing sales person or to be an excellent researcher or something else, people require motivation or drive to achieve these goals.


So . . . what motivates you?  Is it a day when you get all your work done?  A promotion?  A personal thank you from your boss or a peer?  A round of applause in a formal meeting?  A certificate to hang on your wall?  Or is it something else?


Motivation isn’t one size-fits-all.  Chances are, what motivates you isn’t the same thing that motivates the person sitting next to you.   As a leader, how do you create an environment that motivates individuals to do their best work while recognizing that each individual is motivated differently?

This webinar will introduce you to employee motivation (what it is and what it’s not) and will provide you with practical tools you can apply to increase individual employee motivation and engagement.
