Motivation has been one of the most written-about and widely-discussed topics over many decades across every kind of organization imaginable. Although it can mean different things to different people, motivation is most often viewed as a methodology managers use to coax team members to be more productive and feel better about their jobs than they otherwise would without management’s efforts.
Based on the work of many researchers over the years, one thing seems clear: we humans do what we do to satisfy our individual needs and these vary widely in their variety and intensity. The challenge for managers at all levels is to develop a multi-prong approach that helps employees satisfy their individual needs and the organization’s needs at the same time.
In this one-hour webinar, Geoff Nichols, Senior Trainer with HRDQ, provides specific methods and tips to help attendees identify what they can do to help their employees fulfill their needs by helping the organization excel.
