What's your TRUE Motivator?
Kristin Frade - Executive Coach, Novus Global
9am - 10:15am

Do you ever wonder what actually motivates you? Have you ever tried to 'muster up' extra motivation to accomplish something only to be frustrated with the results? Have you ever been baffled that something you used to have significant energy for is now something you consistently avoid? 

When it comes to you or your team, operating with a “one size fits all” motivation style is most likely not going to work. There are better ways to spend your time and energy than trying to analyze your team’s lack of motivation or continuously wonder about your leadership effectiveness? Motivations are not evergreen, they are fluid and we can learn to adapt.

Participants will be able to take the 5i Assessment to help answer these exact questions along with understanding that our motivation is not a static thing. Understanding what intrinsically motivates us or our teams can lead to more effective leadership, incentives, work satisfaction and therefore, employee loyalty. We will explore new ways of thinking and the idea is that you leave with...you guessed it...some fresh motivation!"

Key Takeaways:

- Participants will learn five different types of motivators and how to recognize them.
- Understand what motivates you and others in this season and how to effectively use it to create win-win situations.
- Explore the tensions and synergies between the five types of motivation.
- Create maximum value out of your current motivator to ultimately make greater progress at a faster pace.
