    Employee Motivation Course

    Course Outline

    There are several types of tools to become a great motivator. In this management course, we will teach participants five of the most popular and effective models of motivation and then how to bring them together to create a customized motivation program for your company. There is a heavy emphasis on psychology in this course as motivation is a human trait that can be taught. We will begin by defining motivation and both the employer’s role and the employee’s part. We will identify personality types and explain how they fit into a plan for employee motivation. We will refresh our SMART goals and use the method to identify and address issues. The workshop begins by examining Herzberg’s theory of satisfaction and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, two well known theories which explain the role of motivation in the workplace.

    We also address object-oriented theory, the old carrot and the stick theory as well as the newer plant theory. We move on to reinforcement theory and provide a brief history of the theories of Skinner and Thorndike. We will teach participants a valuable skill in behaviour modification in four steps and how this is appropriate in the workplace. We share this valuable skill as a tip in this newsletter.TIP: – Step one: Define the behaviour to be modified. Step two: Record the rate at which that behaviour takes place.-Step three: Change the consequences which result from that behaviour.-Step four: If this does not succeed, change the consequences to a greater or lesser extent.

    In module five participants will learn about Vroom’s expectancy theory. At the core of which increased effort leads to greater performance and increased performance brings about a better outcome. Vroom’s theory may sound simple but he does make specific reference to three variables which cannot be ignored. These variables differ from person to person, making a collective outcome impossible since people are unique. The first variance is the value the individual places on the expected outcome. The second variable is expectancy, different people place varying value on expecting a better outcome from increased profit. The third is instrumentality, or to put it simply, people do what’s best for them. In module six we will discuss the role of personality in motivation. You will identify your own personality and will be taught how to identify different personalities and how personality affects motivation. We move to refresh our knowledge of the SMART method of goal setting and achievement and then we give you your own toolbox so that you can build a customized motivation plan for your company. We wrap things up with a look at morale issues and how to keep motivating yourself.
