Inspiring & Motivating Arts & Culture Teams

In this on-demand course from NAS and University of Michigan, Ross School of Business you will learn why these motivation problems are not simply due to a “bad” or “unmotivated” team member. Rather, motivation is very much driven by what work conditions we create for our teammates, how we structure goals and objectives, and how we reward people for the accomplishment of those goals. This course will help you diagnose and solve motivation problems so that you can bring out the best in your people.
