Mastering Motivation


Employee engagement has been a hot topic for some time now as all of the evidence suggests that it drives a range of business outcomes including operating income. Higher employee engagement leads to an increase in retention, productivity, creativity and customer satisfaction so it’s a no brainer that organisations want to do what they can to have great employee engagement within their firms. But what does this really mean and how can we meaningfully and authentically engage our employees?


In this talk, Lysa will take us through some of the key components that facilitate true employee engagement. We will look at the relationship between motivation and engagement and will discover some simple but fascinating indicators that will help you understand how to measure and influence the impact that motivation and engagement has on team performance.


Creating high performing teams is reliant on managing motivation but surely this is the elusive holy grail of HR? How can we manage the motivation of others when it’s such a variable, changeable, intangible and personal thing?


Join us, to discover some of the critical keys to success in managing motivation and the key role emotional intelligence, management and leadership has in creating happy, high performing teams.
