HR Academy Course #3: Building a Culture of High Performance Teams

The processes of motivating employees and building successful teams continue to challenge employers and managers. In today’s workplace, it is very important to involve employees in workplace decisions. If an employee feels included, understands their role within their team and the company, and what an important role they play, it will empower them with the authority to take ownership of their work, to make decisions and to work as a team. Bob and his team have found that involving employees in workplace decisions will increase loyalty, promote engagement and build a successful, high performing team! We know that motivation is a feeling that is derived from an emotion, a desire, or a physiological need that provokes action. Motivation can either be intrinsic, which means it involves factors that motivate us from within or extrinsic, which deals with external factors. Motivation is unique to each individual and it changes over time according to the situation. The idea of team building refers to a wide range of activities, usually in a business context, for improving team performance. Team building is pursued via a variety of practices. Using team building activities will help to build and solidify motivation when delivered properly to your team.

At this seminar, attendees will:

  • Learn the fundamentals of motivation;
  • Learn how to effectively assess employee motivation levels;
  • Meet employees’ motivational needs;
  • Understand rewards and recognition;
  • And more!
