Motivation — the willingness to get the job done by starting rather than procrastinating, persisting in the face of distractions, and investing enough mental effort to succeed — accounts for 40% of the success of team projects. Yet managers are often at a loss as to how to effectively motivate employees. In this session we will explore how the science behind motivation can be one of your most effective levers in employee performance and work through specific examples to provide practical insights.

Leadership Themes: Growth, Results-orientation, Influence
