What this course covers:

At work:

·        do you need to be more motivated at work?

·        do you find it easier to be more demotivated than motivated?

·        do you know you lack motivation, but don’t really know why?

·        and…you don’t know how to improve your motivation

·        or you manage someone who isn’t very motivated?


As a student:

·        do you want to succeed, but find it difficult to be motivated

·        does it seems easier to give up and give in, than get going…

Potential impact:

At work:

·        you will find it easier – much easier – to be more motivated at, in and through work, because:

              you will know what specifically motivates you, and how to bring that under your control

              you will realise you control and own much more of these motivational factors than you thoug

              you will understand your reasons for being motivated, and make sure they are present in all you do

·        you will find it easier to be more motivated than demotivated, because:

              you will be very aware of your motivational state

              you will be able to monitor how motivated you are, and why

              you will be able to switch easily from demotivated to motivated, using the learning from this programme

·        you will know why you lack motivation, because:

              you will seek and understand the reasons, rather than just saying “I just do”, or “I don’t know”

              you will be able to shift your motivation from negative to positive accordingly, by being more self-aware and having greater self-


·        you will know how to improve your motivation in any circumstance,  because:

              this course will give you a wide range of handy tools, tips and techniques to use

·        you will feel more competent and confident in managing someone who isn’t very motivated, because:

              you have a very specific and successful strategy to use to help them

              you can reference your own example of improved motivation

              you and they can see the immediate impact and benefits of this approach

As a student:

·        Knowing you want to succeed, you will convert this into being motivated to succeed, because:

              you will have a wide range of positive solutions to try

              you will understand what makes you tick – and gets in the way

              and for those things that ‘get in the way’ you will have a number of options to take that will tackle those blocks

·        it will be easier to get going rather than give up and give in,  because:

              being more motivated, using our approach, is more fun, as well as more effective – so why wouldn’t you want to be motivated?

              you will truly understand how much a lack of motivation will prevent high-quality success


At home:

·        you will do what’s necessary, with a willing approach, because:

              you will learn how much of your motivation is down to you, rather than ‘things’

·        you will be more motivated around the mudane chores of home life, because:

              you will see and feel just how more effective you are in getting through those chores when you’re motivated

              as a result of our programme, you may be able to have a different view on what previously you saw as ‘negative’ chores….


And generally:

·        you will find a sense of ambition or purpose, because:

               you will find something through this programme to give you a sense of purpose and ambition

               you will have the tools to help you define what it is you want – at work, at home, in relationships, in life

·        you will no longer be easily disheartened or distracted, because

               you will recognise the costs of such feelings, and more importantly, know how to avoid or minimise them

·        you will start to deliver on your hopes and expectations, because:

               all the 6 key factors will be in place

               you will have discovered just what it takes to be motivated, and as a result, have hopes and expectations that are much more     

               likely to be met than not
