1. Motivating & Engaging Your Staff

Are your employees thriving and contributing their best at work? Work pressures seem to thwart leader’s efforts to create an environment where employees can grow and flourish in new ways. In this interactive session, you’ll learn current theories in self-motivation and self-determination at work, much based off the research by Ed Deci and popularized by Daniel Pink in his best-selling book Drive. You’ll explore concrete ways to foster that self-motivation by first deciding when and how to be hands-off (giving employees autonomy), and then when and how to be hands-on (giving appropriate support), called Task Enabling.

3. The Hard Stuff is the Soft Stuff

You’ve probably experienced how easy it is to bark out orders or instructions, but so much harder to inspire employees to be their best. The hard stuff is really the soft stuff. In this workshop, you’ll learn ways to help employees reach their full potential and thereby view themselves as essential to the business. You’ll learn to build your employees’ self-worth by demonstrating appropriate authenticity, vulnerability, serving others, giving respect, reducing fear and learning from mistakes. You’ll also explore an area of growth for you to better utilize the soft stuff with your employees. Through interactive workshop activities and discussions, you’ll delve into these concepts and learn how to apply them to your own leadership experiences. By doing so, you’ll then experience the wonderful benefit of improving not only team dynamics, but also work creativity, innovation and performance.
