Active Motivation


6 PDUs

Motivation is the process that accounts for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward the attainment of a goal. Intensity is concerned with how hard a person tries. This is the element most of us focus on when we discuss the topic of motivation. However, unless effort is channeled in a direction that benefits the organization, high intensity is no guarantee of favorable job-related performance outcomes. Quality of effort, therefore, is just as important as intensity of effort. Finally, persistence (how long a person can maintain effort) is equally important. A motivated person stays with a task long enough to achieve his or her goal. Participants in this course will be provided with their motivational profile and with solutions designed to address the most difficult motivational challenges. Participants will also acquire the know-how required to develop a team’s Motivational Profile.

This course is recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® and as such will provide 6 PDUs (Professional Development Units) / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation.

Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 90% of the course.
