How to motivate people? Don’t forget, They are people first, then only, they are employees If u treat people as if, they are capable and smart, that’s exactly how they will perform
Express genuine interest in others Best way is showing the interest than expressing it. Tell the Abdul Kalam and his co-scientist story
Respecting the dignity of others Treat employees as colleagues and don’t condescend (show lower than yourself), dictate or berate Engage people, challenge them, invite their input and encourage their cooperation
Respecting the dignity of others Humanise the organisation in ways big and small “ I very often have midday meeting, and I always make it a habit to bring lunch for any employee who’s staying through the lunch hour” Joyce, CEO, Harmon associates corporation
Creating a positive mental attitude “Our life is what our thoughts make it” Marcus Aurelius, Roman Empire
Rewards means People work for money but go extra mile for recognition and praise before others
Myths in Motivation Myth #1 -- "I can motivate people" Not really -- they have to motivate themselves. You can't motivate people anymore than you can empower them. Employees have to motivate and empower themselves. However, you can set up an environment where they best motivate and empower themselves. The key is knowing how to set up the environment for each of your employees.
Myths in motivation 2. Myth #2 -- "Money is a good motivator“ Not really. Certain things like money, a nice office and job security can help people from becoming less motivated, but they usually don't help people to become more motivated. A key goal is to understand the motivations of each of your employees.
3. Myth #3 -- "Fear is a good motivator" Fear is a great motivator -- for a very short time. That's why a lot of yelling from the boss won't seem to "light a spark under employees" for a very long time.
4. Myth #4 -- "I know what motivates me, so I know what motivates my employees" Not really. Different people are motivated by different things. I may be greatly motivated by earning time away from my job to spend more time my family. You might be motivated much more by recognition of a job well done. People are not motivated by the same things. Again, a key goal is to understand what motivates each of your employees.
6. Myth #5 -- "I can't comprehend employee motivation -- it's a science" Nah. Not true. There are some very basic steps you can take that will go a long way toward supporting your employees to motivate themselves toward increased performance in their jobs.
Power of enthusiasm Enthusiasm is something you transmit through your eyes, in the way you move, you act and more than the way you write. All should have enthusiasm for something. If you don’t feel any type of enthusiasm, you might as well be dead. Once you discover that you are enthusiastic in doing something, it’s easy to develop the ability to get the success there yourself. Dale Carnegie
Know the power of enthusiasm Enthusiasm is a feeling that has to come from inside “That’s one small step for man, but one Giant leap for mankind” Neil Amstrong
Be enthusiastic Learn to communicate well Motivate yourself to motivate others Be a successful leader
