News-Antique.com - Jun 29,2010 - Review of the Summer 2010 Taster Day Leading People Through Change, Motivating & Engaging Them.
Focus Experiential Training run FREE Taster Days every season. We specifically choose topics on the basis of requests and conversations with new and regular clients, current events that impact on people and the workplace, and to keep you updated with the latest cutting-edge training tools and techniques.
This month we focused the FREE Summer Taster Day on helping managers to re-engage, motivate and raise the morale of their teams, leading them through the change curve to improved motivation resulting in elevated productivity. The day also provided opportunity for HR professionals to network and share the issues they have faced and solutions that have worked over the past few months.

The traditional hamburger model was examined and we discussed how simply working in task and process without considering the culture can cause motivational problems.
