Leadership Motivation Strategies

Discover how you (and others) are motivated to achieve – so you can reach your full potential and lead with even greater confidence and strategic purpose.
How You Succeed – Studies reveal that motivation accounts for up to 60 percent of a leader’s performance! You can be a more strategic leader when you understand how you are motivated to work and achieve. During this coaching (or training) you will discover and understand dozens of Meta Programs that determine how you are naturally motivated. What are Meta Programs? They are behavioral filters that manage, guide and direct your thinking. They determine how you are convinced / persuaded, how you communicate and how you prefer to interact with others. They also influence how you make decisions, how you are fulfilled, how you are motivated to achieve at work, etc. By understanding these Programs, you can improve your performance, leadership, communication skills, rapport capabilities, and much more. During this process, you will also learn how others are motivated, so you can more effectively lead and influence them to get on board with new initiatives, projects and organizational goals. People are constantly giving away information about themselves – and we will show you how to look for it!
The EQ Boost – This knowledge will also greatly improve your self-awareness – a cornerstone of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). EQ is the ability to recognize and control emotions that guide your thinking and behavior. Studies show higher EQ translates into many workplace benefits, including better leaders, increased self confidence, better performance and much more.
