Workplace Motivation Training

There’s no doubt that motivation can go a long way; quite literally so! Think about your first day of school and how quickly you must have bolted down the stairs in anticipation of a brighter future. In that particular instance alone, motivation allowed you to wake up and drive a few kilometers to your school. More than that, it’s the invisible companion that’s kept you going through the worst of situations. It’s therefore no doubt that the same thing must exist within professionals to overcome the responsibilities of work: quotas, deadlines, creative work, reports, etc. In fact, we dare say it is more important than ability; ability can only get you so far, but without a will that equals your abilities, you might find lasting long a frustrating prospect. This training session is equally designed to show you the basics of motivation, how to maintain them and even spread the energy to others. By the end of this particular session, leaders and employees alike will be able to work together and spread the energy to help sustain productivity, morale and cohesion, creating a successful, winning team.

Motivation is everything when it comes to work. More precisely, it is the very principle that forms a successful person as it is what allows them to pull through any dangerous or hectic situation. In a more practical sense, the fires of determination can affect your productivity, morale and even your entire career. What makes the metaphor even more appropriate is that you get to pass this skill down on others by promoting a motivational climate and designing jobs that aim at increasing motivation. This training course arms you with the knowledge to push through any kind of upheaval and more. In fact, you can even create your customised training course to focus on you and your team’s more specific needs.

Additional Modules and Sample Sections

Learn the Basics of Motivation

Picture the person you have the most respect for in your life. You’ve probably seen them in action and thought to yourself: “What’s the secret to their success? What is it that makes them who they really are now?” Now, try to read up about their life or, if it’s a friend or a teacher, try asking them about what it is exactly that propelled them to success. Chances are, most of the time, they will answer: “motivation.” Now, motivation can take on many forms: some want to protect their loved ones, others want to be the very best versions of themselves, but what’s important is that this is the one thing that they all have in common. Accordingly, this training course’s aim is to teach you the fundamentals of motivation, its benefits and help you answer a personal question: what’s your motivation?

Know the Science of Motivation

Motivation has been written about through history by various psychologists, self-help experts and other scientists with the intent of exploring how to give motivation both to yourself and others and how to maintain them. Indeed, both of these are relevant questions: people have a tendency to be devoid of motivation due to various circumstances and each of them can affect productivity and morale. On a more personal level, it can affect your career and even your relationships with others. As such, it is therefore important to not only have motivation, but know how to maintain it once you’ve firmly grasped it. Accordingly, this training course will focus on those two central questions as well.

Know How to Deal With Motivation’s Roadblocks

When all is said and done, having motivation essentially means having a firm grasp of oneself. This therefore includes having control over your emotions and the power to deal with fear and desire, which can both lower your capacity to work as an employee and even affect your general sense of determination as a person. Of course, a lot of things are ever dealt with decisively alone and supervisors are aware of this. As such, dealing with personal troubles and the roadblocks to having a firm grasp of one’s motivations is a group effort which starts the moment you sign up for this training course. That’s right; this training course will help you become the best possible version of yourself by giving you the tools to deal with motivation’s roadblocks. Our interactive discussions and fun-filled activities will ensure that you are able to deal with your personal troubles even before you head out on the battlefields of business and, as an added bonus, you’ll be able to spread your knowledge with others. After all, knowledge is power which, when collectively possessed, can change an entire world. We discuss the roadblocks to Motivation and how to overcome them.

Instill a motivational climate and design motivating jobs

As noted before, having motivation is never a single effort. Often, the people who inspire you are those who are capable of removing an entire group’s negativity, and the best companies are those which promote emotionally-satisfying jobs. In fact, once you become the very person you’ve always worked so hard to be, you’ll definitely want to share some of your knowledge as it can genuinely help save careers, promote productivity, increase morale and of course, help the collective effort that is your company. In other words, the best employees know that motivation is shared, and the very nature of our activities and discussions will focus on this very fact: you’ll be communicating with others and forming bonds, ensuring that you’ll never feel alone in your quest to change entire worlds!

Here are some of the many modules we offer here at Paramount, each of which are focused on addressing very areas on motivation that you and your team might want to focus on:

The Function of Values

Values can be a motivating factor when making decisions or choosing to act on a matter at hand. In this session, participants will explore their feelings about various motivational factors including their personal values and values of the community around them. We help participants learn how to achieve more by aligning goals with values and becoming self-motivated.

Anticipation Theory

Participants will have an opportunity to recognize their personal learning objectives and develop personal skills within the session.

A Motivational Checklist

We also help participants to design or redesign an occupation to become more inspiring and to create a motivational environment.

Supervising and Motivation

In this part of the session we look at the three strategies to motivation: the whip the carrot, and also the plant.

Many real examples from other workplaces are shown to participants in regards to how to use these strategies.

Anxiety and Desire
