Do you know what motivates your employees? Money? Not the most powerful one
Motivating a staff is something paramount to a manager. Obviously, we all want to get the most out of our team, and there are many ways to do so.
Is a motivator that can be far stronger than other typically given credit for, it is also one of the least costly and simplest methods of motivation.
Fear of losing the job or the fear of being replaced, love of a certain team, position or a superior, the desire to climb or get that next promotion make these motivating factors.
But don’t play o desire. You can do it, you ‘re the boss, but don’t, you will lose respect. Instead:
Communicate with your employees/ Listen more and speak less
Be an active listener, talk with them and build relationships.
They need to see you as a person, an actual human being because somehow this will make them be more willing to take that extra step for you.
People understand that decisions have to be made but at the same time, they want to feel like they have had the opportunity to contribute. Listening to them, to their ideas can be hugely beneficial to motivating others.
Set clear goals
Everyone wants clarity about what they are expected to do and the result that they need to deliver. Make a point of setting crystal clear goals and try to make it S.M.A.R.T: specific, measurable, agreed upon, realistic and time- based.
Show them they can count on you
Not achieving a target in one month can make you team incredibly discouraged and burn out. Step in, show them that you can be relied upon. A few words of wisdom can make a difference.
Which is a Better Motivator: Negative or Positive Emotion?
Positive emotion is stronger and facilitates creative responses to feedback.
It is always important to know the people you manage, try to remember small, details about them like he doesn’t like oranges she doesn’t drink coffee, this will save you and help you in your attempt to reward those that deserve it.
There are many ways to motivate, but there is also the best way tailored to each, find that way and watch the success that follows.
