Four allies to fight disillusionment

When teams face challenging times, leaders have four allies to preserve motivation and fight the tide of disillusionment: channeling the energy under negative emotion, growing relationships, connecting people with progress and building a sense of shared purpose.


Drawing on examples from elite coaches and performers in the world of sport, business and beyond, Maintaining Team Motivation Through the Troughs gives participants a clear sense of what they can do to keep people energized, resilient and motivated through challenging periods – and a practical plan for putting those strategies into play.

Participants have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on the emotional state of their team and establish relevant goals.
  • Discover how a team’s emotional state evolves through times of crisis.
  • Explore the four main drivers of motivation under pressure – negative emotion, relationships, progress and shared meaning – and how to tap into them.
  • Use self-assessments, breakout sessions, self-reflection and group discussion to build self-awareness and plan for behaviour change.
  • Create an action plan to apply what they’ve learned to their team.
