Setting a positive learning environment so that learners can flourish is half the battle in teaching and coaching. This workshop will look at basic psychological human needs, self-determination theory, transformational leadership, and providing appropriate challenge and support to illustrate how learners can be motivated to get the best out of themselves. We will also look at some key practical tips to managing common scenarios that hinder learning.
