Most of us know what we need to do next in our careers. However, many of still don’t actually do it! People often speak about lack of motivation, but motivation is always an active process and understanding how we are motivated to do or not do something can help us create and tailor strategies that enable us to accomplish more in our lives. There are many aspects to consider and in this webinar we will look at:

  • Whether you work towards goals or away from difficulties
  • Why your goals matter to you and how that impacts your motivation
  • Whether you truly believe you can achieve what you want
  • Whether your current habits are helping or hindering you
  • How the way you perceive time can help your motivation
  • What success and failure mean to you.

The format

While you will be able to see and hear the tutors, you will not be visible or audible to them or each other. Nobody will know if you’re outside sunning yourself! However, you will be able to ask questions, see the questions that others ask and make comments.

The session will last approximately 1hr of presentation-style teaching interspersed with questions and answers from participants. We will round up the with a Q & A session.

Depending on how many questions are asked, the session may run longer than 1hr so please set aside 1hr 15mins if you want to stay to participate in the Q & A at the end.
