Increasingly, agencies that maintain roads and streets are counted on to provide fast, high-quality service because good maintenance saves lives and money. Meanwhile, the roadway system is growing in size and complexity, and government agencies are under ever greater scrutiny by the public to perform at their very best. While maintenance needs increase, the workers, equipment, and funds remain in short supply.

Yet, shortages or not, it is vital that workers do good work. The best and quickest way to encourage this is through effective motivation by their immediate supervisors. This workshop looks at what makes agencies successful, how to define worker needs and wants, how to take advantage of those for increased productivity through rewards, how to utilize the "One Minute Manager" approach, and how to improve communications.

After completing this course, you will be able to:
Understand how to effectively motivate my personnel.
Know how to evaluate the needs of both the workers and the organization.
Understand how to analyze and improve performance.
Have tools to assist you in motivating your personnel.


This webinar is designed for you: the elected official, the Public Works Director, the first-line or second-line supervisors of road, and street maintenance workers. However, managers at all levels of the agency and those that aspire to management can use the techniques presented in this session to motivate their people.
