I Brought Bagels, Wasn't That Enough?
Money can't buy happiness -- or team cooperation and engagement, as it turns out. So how can you keep your team members energized and show them that their effort is noticed and appreciated, without resorting to hokey rah-rah? With creativity, a personal connection, and a little up-front planning.

This course by Mike Aucoin, author of Right-Brain Project Management, explains the different forms motivation can take, and how (and why) things like a compelling purpose can inspire far more than the desire to receive rewards. There are better and more effective ways to motivate your team than bribing them for good work. Learn new ways to motivate your team, inspire them to succeed, and get them excited about the potential results, even if they are working on "just another software project," and even if you can't afford any more bagels. 1 PDU
