Summary

Explore how ‘traditional’ motivation theories compare to more recent thinking and identify practical steps you can take to increase motivation and better influence your team.

In the past, management theory stated that to increase productivity you need to reward more. While this works in certain circumstances, it is rather a simplistic approach to motivation. We have long understood that motivation is more complex however our organisations and processes are still mainly based on this idea of reward.

During this webinar we will explore the wider landscape of motivation beyond monetary rewards. To do so, we will revisit some of the traditional motivation theories and compare them to more recent thinking. 

In conclusion we will identify actions that you can take (in addition to monetary rewards) to motivate and influence your team to achieve greater performance.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in understanding how to get the most from their teams. Particularly suitable for manager/leaders but also for non-leaders with a role in motivating others.

How will I benefit?

  • Relate traditional motivation theories to more modern thinking on what motivates us.
  • Maintain a balance between achieving organisational objectives and maintaining the well-being of team members.
  • Identify actions they can take to motivate individuals within their teams.
