We live in a world that is constantly changing. Some of us choose to fight the change by remaining in our comfort zone and thus risking stagnation. Other people take a leap and embrace the change in the name of transformation. Between the difference in passivity and activity that underlies our human behaviour, all of us have the inherent desire to be happy and satisfied. That’s the ultimate goal.

And so, the need for change is constant throughout life, as we seek new opportunities and aspire to achieve in different areas of our lives; personal growth, business transformation, a different career path, health improvement, relationships betterment, or any other aspects of life where we set goals in the hope of leading a better life. In order to bring an idea or goal to life we need a focused and determined mindset.

And that’s where our motivation plays a big role in helping us achieve our desires, dreams and aspirations. But do we always have the required level of motivation or do we know how motivation works so that we can use it to our advantage? Many different factors influence motivation, including our internal physiological states, our mindset that is influenced by our cognitions, the current social and lifestyle circumstances, as well as our past history and experiences.

Understanding what drives motivated behaviour in humans is a truly fascinating endeavour. We all struggle to stay motivated sometimes including the times when we find it really challenging to motivate other people. This session aims to give the audience valuable insights into the psychology of motivation and how to use motivation to our advantage.

The main learning objectives:

•What is motivation and how the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation drive our behaviour.

•The number one theory of motivation that help us gain a better understanding of the concept.

•What neuroscience says about the human motivation, how motivational behaviour is regulated by chemicals in our brain.

•Why we may start motivated but end up being demotivated; a lack of motivation, the real reasons people procrastinate.

•The most effective behavioural strategies to improve motivation in yourself and others, e.g. clients, partners, employees.
