Motivation Training


Hi All

I am delivering a days workshop on motivation and wondered if anyone could help with materials, exercises etc..anything would be a help.

I need to cover; influences on behaviour at work, theories on motivation, motivation techniques, understand what motivates people, using motivational feedback - not much then!!

If you can help, you email me at [email protected]

many thanks in anticipation

  1. “workshop”?
    Hi Ginny
    You refer to the day as a “workshop” but all the subjects you need to cover seem to be more delivered than interactive….

    Why not run the day as a series of brainstorms, discussions, planning sessions and pairs coaching sessions around..
    **What influences behaviour at work?
    **What motivational techniques have you come across?..what worked and what didn’t?
    **What motivates your people?
    **How do you motivate through feedback? When is feedback demotivating?
    **What could the organisation do to help me to motivate my team?

    The very fact that you are asking the opinions of the delegates may be much more motivational than telling them either the theory or how you think it should be done. It should also give them some valuable outputs from the day.


  2. I train in Motivational Interviewing
    This is an area of expertise for me. How could I be of help?

  3. Maslow exercise
    Hi- I use an exercise where groups of delegates have to imagine they have been stranded on a desert island & then have to draw the island & their needs & wants from day one onwards.
    Then these flipcharts are used as a basis for discussion around Maslow’s hierarchy & it’s application in the workplace.

  4. staff are motivated-just not at work!

    Assuming this is a workshop for people who need to be able to motivate others? What it the context of the motivational requirement?- eg I’ve done some work with managers who need to motivate disaffected staff who will not embrace new proceedures/learning. I would start with Tom Peters’ approach(in what circumstances are staff demonstrating motivation eg socially, sport, outside work) and use learning styles to identify/recreate this environment in the workplace.

    hope this helps
