This event enables Framework certified trainers to become certified for another two years after their initial certification expires or to upgrade to a lifetime certificate. Two-year certification requires recertification every two years for a fee, while lifetime certification requires no recertification. However, lifetime-certified trainers may take recertification courses as a refresher at no charge.

Others have not learned how to identify their strengths and weaknesses or their emotions; they think success lies “somewhere over the rainbow.” This One-Hour Short Course addresses the components of self-awareness and begins the investigation of how to develop each area as a foundation for self-motivation and ultimate success in academics and in life.

Psychologists tell us that human beings are born with natural tendencies to seek out challenges and opportunities to learn. These tendencies are the foundation of motivation, and they operate robustly under certain conditions. The conditions under which motivation can thrive and grow will be discussed in both sessions of this in-depth, on-demand course.
In Session 1 you will be shown a mental model of motivation. Through a closer examination of that mental model, a deeper understanding of each component will be developed in order to provide you with a clear framework for understanding motivation theory.
In Session 2 strategies for enhancing each component of motivation will be provided to assist you in building upon the intrinsic motivation innate in individuals, with a special focus on motivating under-resourced individuals.
