Motivating Your Team

Motivating Your Team Course

This skill-enhancing course also allows you to achieve two Professional Continual Development CPD points in the non-verifiable Mentoring & Coaching category.

It’s no secret that motivation is critical to success. The challenge is that you can’t demand or manufacture motivation. No amount of “sticks”’ and “carrots” can force people to feel motivated. The most powerful motivation is intrinsic: It comes from within.

So, how do you tap into your team’s motivation? How do you light a fire under your employees’ feet—call upon their innermost needs, drives, and ambitions—and inspire them? In this course, you’ll learn strategies to motivate your team, followed by a final checklist of motivation do’s and don’ts.

We debunk the following three motivational myths in this course:

  • Myth: Money is the single biggest motivator.
  • Myth: Managers are responsible for employee motivation.
  • Myth: Fear is a powerful motivator.

Employee motivation has become a popular topic in team and business management studies. That’s because employee motivation directly impacts your business’s bottom line. For example, increasing employee motivation is known to:

  • Boost productivity.
  • Increase job satisfaction.
  • Reduce employee absenteeism.
  • Improve performance.
  • Promote a positive work culture.

A Guide to Navigating Team Dynamics Course

A Guide to Navigating Team Dynamics course is essential for any industry manager.  Workplace teams can—and should—be more than just the sum of their human parts. Beyond the skills and expertise each person has, it’s the way these individuals come together to tackle a project that can give it a special boost—or act as a shackle. The interplay of personalities, roles, work habits, management styles, and more can affect how teams get work done. These invisible factors, known as team dynamics, are the powerful forces that govern how people relate in executing their work tasks.

In this course, you’ll learn what team dynamics are and how they can influence decision-making and efficiency on your team. You’ll get primed on what shapes these invisible forces and how to recognise and manage these influences to set your team up for success. We’ll also run through some situations to help hone your identification and application skills so that you can better manage how your team works together.

Once you have completed the course, you will have increased your knowledge of the following topics:
