Motivating Others: Coaching to Action

Motivation represents a crucial challenge for many organizations. Well over half of employees are not engaged (Gallup 2014, 2018). Motivation issues are not because of an uninspired team member, rather motivation is driven by the environment created for the team. This course will guide you through identifying motivational issues so you can create a climate where people want to do their best. Through your coaching, those around you will feel empowered, share ownership, and feel like their work is important, regardless of whether they are your peers or your direct reports.
