Motivating others to do what needs to be done can be a true challenge. How do we know what motivates our employees when we aren't too sure what even motivates us as leaders? This course looks at some of the theories about motivation, as well as why people are motivated by different things at different times of their lives. We offer some motivational tools, and we provide some simple models to help you and your employees set goals and to increase the likelihood those goals will be successful.
Leadership Development Series Background
The Leadership Development series was developed for Edumine by Dr. Elaine Cullen, President of Prima Consulting Services, and by Trudy Gallinger, Director of Curriculum Development for Prima Consulting Services. We draw upon a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from those who are thought leaders, practitioners, and professors in the art of leadership. We provide references for the many wise teachers and guides we used to create this series, and hope you will take the time to learn from them as well. How we have put the series together, however, and the unique ways we have presented the material as it relates to the mining industry, is ours alone.
While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete the Leadership Development - Introduction to Leadership course. This will ensure that we have a common understanding of what leadership entails, and common language to use in working through the entire course series.
Leadership Development – Leadership and the Art of Motivation consists of 4 viewing sessions of 45–60 minutes each with supporting figures, videos, activities, and an interactive course review. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 4 hours of viewing content.
