Motivating the Middle
What is Motivating the Middle?
Motivating the Middle is a workshop that helps students better fight apathy and better motivate and activate members at all levels of engagement. The interactive workshop from is based on the book Motivating the Middle: Fighting Apathy in College Student Organizations, published by CAMPUSPEAK co-founder T.J. Sullivan in 2012. Facilitated by some of the agency’s most talented professional facilitators, MTM helps the most dedicated student leaders understand that their fellow members respond to different motivations and engage in different ways.
Participants will learn the concept and strategies highlighted in Sullivan’s book and will engage in both discussion and action planning to put those strategies into action. Student leaders will also learn how their personal leadership style inhibits or encourages the middle-third leadership strategy, enabling them to adjust their approach to some of the most pressing issues facing their group.
Motivating the Middle is a program of the Campus Leadership & Involvement Center and the Leadership Fellows, with partial funding by the Denison Campus Governance Association.
