E3: Motivating Staff: What Works and What Doesn't

Time: 2:30pm - 3:45pm
Location: 611-614

This fast-paced, interactive workshop is packed with useful tips on how to effectively motivate your staff in today's ever-changing work environment. The session's goal is to help you identify the top three workplace motivators and demonstrate how you can use them to encourage your staff to do a great job. Explore different ways to motivate people and discuss why some of them are successful and some are not. With most libraries dealing with budget constraints, discover non-monetary rewards that will energize and rejuvenate both you and your staff.

Takeaway 1: Participants will learn how to utilize positive motivators to achieve individual and organizational goals.

Takeaway 2: Participants will be able to identify ways to reward positive behavior and eliminate de-motivators that impede goal achievement.

Who should attend: Library administrators, managers, and supervisors, or anyone stepping into a leadership role to motivate others to achieve goals
