Lantec | Course: Mastering Principles of Motivation

Mastering Principles of Motivation

1/2 days


Motivation puts together taking responsibility for our outcomes, setting direction for our lives, and having tools to manage priorities. Motivation requires a commitment from individuals to decide what they want from life and to do what’s necessary to get the results they want. This workshop will help participants internalize the four pillars of motivation and to make meaningful, empowered choices while taking action to get where they want to go.

Course Objectives:

This workshop teaches participants to:

  • Define motivation and what it means on an individual level
  • Assume responsibility for their results by understanding who they are, what they want, and how to reach their goals
  • Describe the four pillars of motivation
  • Use techniques related to cultivating optimism, and developing good habits to build internal motivation


Lesson 1: Course Overview

You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

Lesson 2: Motivation for Optimists

In this session, participants explore motivation and creating a motivational climate for themselves. They will also learn about the ABC’s of optimism, the benefits of pessimism and optimism, as well as dealing with adversity.

Lesson 3: Using the Leader that’s in You

This session includes a discussion of what self-leadership is and how it can be used to motivate, a review of the pre-assignment, and understanding who our mentors are. Participants will also be introduced to the four pillars of motivation through leadership: knowing who you are, knowing what you do, knowing what you need to learn, and using what you know.

Lesson 4: Knowing Who You Are

This is the first pillar. In this session, you will engage learners in creating a personal vision statement, identifying dreams, and setting goals. They will also learn how to set themselves up for success (not just leaving those dreams on paper!).

Lesson 5: Knowing What You Do Goal setting is an important part of motivation.

This session will look at the SPIRIT acronym for setting goals. The next pillar is about applying what participants know about themselves and using techniques to manage our behavior, like responding to negative and positive cues. Participants will also define lifelong learning, consider their own learning plan, and start making connections about what they want to do in terms of their future learning. 

Lesson 6: Using What You Know

In this examination of the final pillar of self-leadership, participants will learn how to take care of their physical and emotional selves in order to support their abilities as a self-leader.

Lesson 7: Workshop Wrap-Up

At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
