"Flipping the Script: Motivate to Cooperate"

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." ~Zig Ziglar

How do you spark motivation in others?  The future success of your projects may depend on how well you can "flip the script".Understanding your team's motivation can help you get them on board and motivated for a successful project. Kim Eley's presentation will focus on how to get the members of your team excited for a new challenge....even if they are initially resistant!  The presentation will be delivered in an informal manner.  Part of the presentation will include questions and answers with the group. Through tales of true life adventures in project management and process improvement, Mrs. Eley will offer practical tips for motivation and successful transformations.
