John Keller, developed the ARCS Model during the 1980’s as a way to boost motivation during learning. The ARCS Model contains four main categories:
- Attention- getting and holding learner’s interest and attention
- Relevance- The learning has to show a kind of usefulness
- Confidence- There should be success opportunities and some personal control
- Satisfaction- There has to be rewards, and feedback.

The month of June is recognized as “International People Skills Month.” In today’s work climate, especially in the non-profit sector and the human service field, strong soft skills are vital to both the organizations and the people we serve. People skills that are needed to succeed in the workplace today include:
- Strong communication skills
- Getting along with others
- Active listening skills.
In recognition of “people skills month,” I have added links below that will help you in creating training activities, ice-breakers, and exercises that will reinforce learning in the areas of active listening, diversity, teambuilding and communication.
