Code: ESC/19/205 Leadership Workshop: Motivational Leadership (Cancelled)

It has been said that only we can motivate ourselves. In other words, each individual is responsible for maintaining their own energy, drive, and consistent productivity. While most of us see that this is clearly true to a large extent, it is still the responsibility of leaders to create a work environment where this is encouraged to happen.
