Motivating Your Employees

CREATE A MOTIVATIONAL CLIMATE: Create a climate where others find long-term motivation. Long term motivation comes from a positive work environment, and positive reinforcement. Usually long-term motivation is impossible without short-term motivation. Short-term motivation comes from the staff working together, learning from each other, and giving as well as receiving constant feedback to each other. Short-term motivation builds self motivation. Self motivation comes from daily reinforcements. Little reinforcements such as good food in the cafeteria, jolly co-workers, and a little pat on the back contribute to self motivation. If the staff enjoys working in the organization, they're more likely to do their best to stay there.

CREATING A POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE: The ability to create a positive atmosphere is easier than you think. Your first aim is to achieve is perspective; the perspective of the employees who work for you. With their needs in mind, you will be able to create a more comfortable, yet professional atmosphere. Remember every time you do something positive for the staff, you are boosting morale which leads to a better work environment, or as the saying goes, "You are likely to get more with honey than vinegar."

YOU CAN BOOST EMPLOYEE MORALE: 1. Have an effective benefit plan. 2. Be flexible. 3. Trust employees. 4. Be pleasant. 5. Have a cafeteria with good food and good prices. 6. Have an office holiday party. 7. Have an annual luncheon for employees. 8. Schedule company outings and teams. 9. Thank employees for a job well done.

LINKING THE ORGANIZATION AND STAFF: Leaders link the organization and staff together. In fact, they are one of the few elements that directly connect the two. Other elements are projects, and office-related social events, both of which may not pose high-obligation for many employees. If an organization consisted of only employees nothing would happen, aside from a little hoopla. That's why there's often a chain of command in an organization, which usually range from the most successful leader to the least successful. And the least successful leader has no where to go but up.
