Program Summary

People often refer to others motivating them to take an action or pursue a goal, but can we really motivate others? No we can't. Why? Because the essence of motivation is an internal force - it comes from WITHIN a person, not from OUTSIDE OF THEM. Why then do people so often refer to someone motivating them? Because people don't "give" us motivation; rather it is that people help us find it within ourselves.

While WE can't motivate others, there are many times in life that we are called to provide support and encouragement. Someone may come to you and specifically ask for a helping hand as they set off on a personally challenging endeavor. They are trying to make a personal change and they know they will need support. You may understand that your role is to help the person find, sustain or regain motivation but do you know exactly what to do?

In this program, your participants will discover specific skills, tools and techniques to help someone pursue a change or goal. This powerful process helps others find their initial motivation, sustain their momentum along their journey of change, and helps them to re-light the fire of motivation when it wanes so they can successfully achieve a meaningful goal or change.

Learning Outcomes

From this program, your participants will...

  • Work with tools to help someone find the motivation needed to make a personal change
  • Explore strategies that help someone sustain motivation during the change process
  • Practice with techniques that help someone regain their motivation when it lags or goes away.

This program is for someone who would like to hone their ability to be a motivational support to someone else as they take the admirable path of making a personal change.
