No sticks and carrots anymore… motivate your team like a pro?

We live in an agile environment and everything should go smoothly… is that always so?

Why are we still failing with projects since we follow the four sacred sentences from Agile Manifesto? Have we missed something? Oh wait, what about twelve principles behind it… yes we are talking about that small link under agile manifesto that so many of us fail to notice. One of them states: ‘Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.’

Nothing drives efficiency better than proper motivation. How can we make our team work with passion and use their potential in daily work? On workshop, we will go through non-financial motivation techniques and methods that help to build engaging environment and improve cooperation in teams.

You will learn what motivates people and how to motivate yourself. You will find ways to build success as a value and how to manage your team to not demotivate them.
