Maintaining Team Motivation Through The Troughs.

Filled with examples and ideas from Olympic athletes and other top performers, Maintaining Team Motivation Through The Troughs is a one-hour tour of the four main drivers of motivation under pressure.

Negative Emotion




Four allies to fight disillusionment

When teams face challenging times, leaders have four allies to preserve motivation and fight the tide of disillusionment.

This keynote/webinar brings these allies to life with stories from a soccer captain whose team finished dead-last at the world cup, a hockey star whose team came together through unprecedented adversity, an NBA coach with a masterful system for relationship building, an Olympic rower who attributes his team’s silver medal to a shared sense of purpose, and more.

Participants are introduced to:

  • What research tells us about resilience in a crisis.
  • How the energy under negative emotion can be used to foster motivation.
  • Why and how to build relationships with people even when time is tight.
  • How to create line of sight to moments of meaning.
