The training “Power of motivation in designing your life” – soon at SWPS University!

To motivate someone, we should be guided by his or her needs, not our own. Instead of guessing we should rather find out what they are because, as the psychology professor Steven Reiss wrote, “motivation is about confirming our own rather than someone else’s values”. Iwona Kokoszka, a trainer, coach and RMP Master, will talk about the power of intrinsic motivation in designing professional and private life during a workshop at the SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities (27 November 2018).

Curiosity – the first step towards motivation 

Why do team members have a different understanding of the goals they are set, approach them differently and have a different success rate in achieving them? The reason is that each of us is a unique product of their genes and their social and cultural environment. So, in order to inspire and support others in achieving goals you should get to know each “individual mix of desires”. Avoid making superficial assessments based on your personal perspective, do not draw conclusions from isolated behaviours. Identify the individual motives.

To learn more about a person, we need to take interest in them. According to an old saying, the nicest people we meet in life are those who are more interested in us than we are in them. These are people we respect and usually like; if we are like this ourselves, others will also start to like us.

Unfortunately, lack of interest in others is a common malady these days. Due to information overload and organic mind laziness, few of us have the need to notice the other person and naturally focus our attention on them.

Lack of curiosity translates into lack of efficiency.

Without knowing what motivates our employees, we take the responsibility for project implementation ourselves. If things go wrong, we blame others and infect them with our nervousness. We also infect them with tension caused by the fear that we fail to deliver the expected results. We spread cortisol, the stress hormone, which affects the team, lowering the morale, motivation and – in the long run – performance, as people exhausted by stress become inefficient.

We cannot afford low and unpredictable efficiency. Find out what motivates you and your team – learn the secrets of individual motivation and how it affects goal achievement.
