Gain practical tools to drive organizational performance

How can you create a supportive environment that enables staff to be more fulfilled, engaged, and productive in their work?

As a manager, you play a pivotal role in embedding and sustaining a culture of excellence in your organization. To achieve this, it is vital that you understand what motivates the people you manage.

Changing Employee Behavior provides you with powerful tools and techniques garnered from decades of research into behavioral economics, cognitive and behavioral psychology, and systemic psychotherapy. You will learn how they can be applied to address some of the most common challenges you may face.

Among the topics you and your peers will explore are the importance of context; intrinsic and extrinsic motivation; how to build empowering habits, and assessing ability and adapting to individual differences. With the support of your coach, you will create an action plan for implementing sustainable change in your workplace.
