10 Things I know about Motivating Staff

Many organizations feel that if they could just figure out the fundamentals of motivation, dealing with employees would be so much easier. Money alone does not work; realistically it is only the price of entry, an expectation, a reason why somebody will join a company or perhaps get up each morning. But what does it actually take to truly motivate staff to perform at an effective level?

Here are 10 Key Tips to Motivating Staff

  • Money is a good initiator but Genuine Interest in the work sustains performance in the long term.
  • Provide Empowering Leadership so that people have the resources to complete the task and are then allowed the freedom to do it.
  • Create Alignment between what employees like to do / are good at and what they actually experience at work.
  • Ensure that employees are Fully Engaged and they will exceed expectations and persist in the face of adversity.
  • Offer Regular Feedback whether through recognition, support or accountability handled in a respectful way.
  • Pay attention to Career Progression or they might wander elsewhere (especially your best people).
  • Make work Challenging and Enjoyable and staff will give their very best.
  • Promote a Positive and Respectful environment in terms of how everybody behaves with each other.
  • Take time to understand Generational Differences; young employees and seasoned personnel have a very different view of the world and the workplace.
  • In a nutshell, provide employees with Purpose, Mastery and Autonomy
