Motivated employees accomplish more than those who watch the clock, feel no sense of a larger purpose, and struggle to complete their daily tasks. This is especially true when external or internal forces add another layer of challenge. Whether it’s layoffs, hiring freezes, changes in telecommuting, or something else, managers need to know how to set the stage for motivation during ordinary and extraordinary times.

Explain why a motivational environment is an important management tool.

“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
