“Start with a Spark”
How to motivate your employees to show greater initiative, to do more and to achieve higher performance

Stephen Brown, CFM, FMP, SFP, CPE, MBCP, CBCP, REM, CESCO Principal/Consultant FM-adviso, ltd.


We have all found ourselves in the situation where we have employees who are under-performing…who are not realizing their potential…who are not adding the needed value to the FM operations and thus, are not contributing fully to the organization. They are just ‘getting by’.
The webinar presentation will quickly review historical models of management and motivation. Then, there will be more penetration into the concepts that trigger the sense of initiative. The contributing factors that shape emotional intelligence will be considered.
The presentation will propose the attendees take an ‘inward view’ of their management style and to consider how the team dynamics can contribute to the desired results.
Additionally, the webinar will share organized ideas about inspiration as a core principle of leadership and will expand to review other factors that build up employee desire to increase their initiative and participation. The basic concepts of reward and recognition and the power of obligation will be included in the topics covered.
The goal of the presentation is to aid the understanding of motivational factors for persons who have perhaps been challenged to get the best results from their work group.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the various aspects of management and motivation and how emotional intelligence factors into the employee outlook.
  2. Awareness of concepts that prompt individuals to embrace and to desire initiative. Includes the influence of team dynamics
  3. Understanding of core leadership elements and the aspects that stimulate employees to want to expand their participation and performance.
  4. Discovery of the influence and the various options of reward and recognition to drive attitudes and realize the positive changes.
