Motivating Yourself and Others

A training course designed to raise participants' awareness of what motivates them, as well as techniques for motivating others.

Our training courses are currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is delivered by experienced subject experts.

Course Context

Motivation is what drives us to achieve our goals and, as a result, feel fulfilled and happy with our overall quality of life. This course is designed to increase awareness of motivational techniques. During the course delegates identify what motivates them and how they can find out what motivates others.

The day is a revealing insight into people’s needs and drives and the ways in which we can develop them to the best advantage of the individual, the team and the organisation.

Some of the more important motivation theories are discussed and put into a practical application, enabling delegates to return to work with an action plan.

Duration: 1-day face-to-face course or virtually over two shorter sessions.  We can also deliver a condensed version; please contact us for more details.

Format: Virtual, live, interactive session or face-to-face where possible.

Delegate numbers: Please contact us to discuss optimum numbers.

Please contact us for information regarding availability and how we can tailor this training to meet your organisation’s requirements.   Specific course objectives can be discussed with the Trainer, and the course content can be adapted to reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of the delegates.

Who Is It For?

"Motivating Yourself and Others" is suitable for all employees. It can also be run for specific groups and tailored to particular workplace scenarios.

A testimonial for the training course:

“Very interesting and gave us the chance to give our own point of view and see the other team members’ points of view.  I will think more about how I can improve on what I need to keep myself motivated and how to approach others more effectively.  We are a very busy department and do not often get chance for this type of interaction.  I think understanding the others’ needs and goals will help us to unite more.”
