Engage and Enable

Fresh ideas to build commitment


Course summary

It’s no secret, employees who feel valued and recognised for the work they do, are far more motivated and more likely to conduct their work with energy and enthusiasm. Latest research by The Work Foundation demonstrates that employee engagement is now the single main driver of organisational success. But what motivates us all to do more at work, to be productive? Contrary to conventional thinking, it isn't just money. However, neither is it about just being happy in our job. It seems that most of us thrive when we can make constant progress, have the opportunity to excel at something and feel a sense of purpose. During this practical session, we explore a range of applied techniques to get people engaged and build morale. This isn’t about firing you up ‘to be more motivated’, instead we deliver the latest ideas on how to energise people and build their long-term commitment.

The workshop aims to demystify the terms: motivation, alignment, engagement and commitment, and challenges old myths about how best to get individuals on-board. All participants are provided with an easy to use toolkit to support the engagement of others and develop high levels of trust across their team.

"I found examining personal motivation very useful and discovered that some of my own responses were unexpected. Helped me to appreciate the factors leading to extreme job satisfaction and alternative approaches to delivering results through people. An enlightening programme."
