What is Motivation?
To begin, participants will explore motivation through a fun activity.
Supervising and Motivation
Next, we will look at three everyday objects that represent three approaches to motivation: the carrot, the whip, and the plant.
During this session, participants will explore Maslow’s and Herzberg’s theories of motivation. They will also review their pre-assignment.
Goal setting is an important part of motivation. This session will look at the SPIRIT acronym for setting goals.
The Role of Values
During this session, participants will identify their personal values, which will help them understand their motivators.
Creating a Motivational Climate
This session will look at the reinforcement theory, also called the behavioral theory, of motivation. Expectancy theory and McClelland’s needs theory will also be discussed.
Applying Your Skills
During this session, participants will work on several motivational case studies.
Designing Motivating Jobs
This session will explore methods of designing (or redesigning) motivating jobs. We will also share the ten things you can do to motivate employees on a daily basis.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
