This research project focuses on strategies for increasing intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy beliefs of participants in the one to two day corporate training session. It consists of three primary components: (1) identifying strategies that can be utilized to increase intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy beliefs through a review of literature and interviews with corporate trainers, (2) testing of strategies within training sessions to determine if utilizing the strategies results in an increase of participants' intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy beliefs, and (3) developing a handbook outlining these strategies that can be utilized by corporate trainers. Although additional research is needed in this area, the results of the strategy testing do appear to indicate that the inclusion of strategies for increasing intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy beliefs can be successful in increasing participants' motivation or at least their satisfaction with the training.
