Motivational Leadership

Tuesday, September 20th

Crowne Plaza, King of Prussia

5:30 PM

Leadership – Drives business results by aligning the vision, mission and values to enhance business value.  A leader is able to enlist the willing cooperation of others, while tapping into their highest skills and desired results.

Influence – Consistently directs situations and inspires people for an all-win environment.

Teamwork – Organizes work tasks, people, and resources to deliver most effectively on organizational goals.

This intensive session will examine how leaders can foster an environment where motivation flourishes and people are encouraged to grow and do their best.  It will address managing the process for aligning human capital with organizational goals.  We will review the philosophies of workplace motivation developed by four prominent 20th century theorists and demonstrate how Dale Carnegie’s famous principles both precede and enhance these theories of workplace motivation.

It has been said that only we can motivate ourselves.  In other words, each individual is responsible for maintaining their own energy, drive, and consistent productivity.  While most of us see that this is clearly true to a large extent, it is still the responsibility of leaders to create a work environment where this is encouraged to happen.

Some leaders are responsible for work environments characterized by a lack of confidence, direction, enthusiasm, and creativity.  Motivation and teamwork are minimal, both at the individual and team levels. 

Other leaders excel at creating an organizational environment where their teams feel motivated to achieve ever higher levels of performance and success.  Team members are energized by their careers and the work they perform.  Teams work collaboratively and creatively to achieve organizational goals. 

Attendees of this presentation will learn to:

1.      Recognize the leader’s role as a motivator

2.      Develop greater awareness of ways people lose motivation

3.      Recognize four classic theories of workplace organization

Following the presentation, attendees will be able to:

1.      Develop greater awareness of the needs that drive people

2.      Recognize the relationship between expectations and motivation

3.      Align individual motivations with organizational goals
