Join us on June 20th, 2019 starting at 6:00pm for an informative workshop on a Motivational Leadership Program led by Fil Ionata, Master Trainer for Dale Carnegie & Associates.
As a leader, it’s imperative to acknowledge that each of your team members is an individual, and while certain perks may motivate you and others, they may not motivate everyone. Most professionals have the ability to keep themselves motivated, but the responsibility falls on a leader to create an environment where people have meaningful work.
In this workshop we examine how leaders can foster an environment where motivation flourishes and people are encouraged to grow and do their best. Stimulating your team to grow on an individual level demonstrably increases morale and productivity as a whole.
