Motivating Yourself and Others

View booking options


This workshop provides an opportunity to explore how we can enhance our own levels of motivation, and how we can have a positive impact on the motivation of our team members, taking into account differences in personalities, attitudes, and values.

We will look at both aspects through a number of different lenses, including personal experience, historical and contemporary models of motivation, and organisational tools and processes, with a particular focus on strengths-based approaches.


By the end of the training course, you will:

  • Understand personal motivators and demotivators
  • Be more aware of intrinsic strengths and how to utilise them
  • Understand how to encourage high levels of motivation within others
