Be About It! Strategies for Motivation

When you wake up in the morning, what is the passion that fuels you to start your day? Are you living it in your work? If others asked you what drives you to achieve, would the answer be obvious? The triggers that motivate people to achieve are unique for everyone.

Motivation has been studied for decades and leaders in the workplace have used assessments (like DISC and Myers-Briggs) to determine their employee’s personality types to better anticipate behaviors and tendencies. While these assessments and other tools can help give you a framework for motivation, the truth is that what motivates us can evolve over time as we change and experience different things.

The secret to unlocking fulfillment in our personal and professional lives lies in identifying our motivations and being able to navigate the things that don’t excite us. Research shows that when people are motivated, they have a positive outlook and are excited about what they’re doing. Knowing that they are investing their time in something they find truly worthwhile inspires the desire to do more, go further.

During this session on motivation, we will: · Dive into discussion on motivation theories · Explore the different types of motivation · Participate in activities around keeping ourselves and others motivated.

Bring your energy and enthusiasm and leave with some new motivation!
