No Time to Be Nice at Work

No Time to Be Nice at Work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Rudeness and bad behavior have all grown over the last decades, particularly at work. How we treat one another at work matters. Insensitive interactions have a way of whittling away at people’s health, performance and souls.

Bosses produce demoralized employees through a string of actions: walking away from a conversation because they lose interest; answering calls in the middle of meetings without leaving the room; openly mocking people by pointing out their flaws or personality quirks in front of others; reminding their subordinates of their “role” in the organization and “title”; taking credit for wins, but pointing the finger at others when problems arise. Employees who are harmed by this behavior, instead of sharing ideas or asking for help, hold back.

Top 10 Ways to Destroy Motivation at Work

Top 10 Ways to Destroy Motivation at Work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Want to know how to destroy motivation at work? These key factors, attitudes, and behaviors destroy motivation at work. It doesn't have to be that way. 

 

A sample from the list of 10:

 Make rules for the many because of the behavior of a few. Organizations need policies and rules to create a legal, ethical, effective workplace. They do not need a policy to solve every problem. 


Focus on mistakes and errors no matter how trivial they are in comparison with successes.
This is especially a problem at weekly meetings and during periodic performance evaluations. Managers must provide balanced feedback, but let’s get real. If an employee is making mistakes most of the time, why not fire the employee? The job must be a terrible fit for the employee’s skills and capabilities. To dwell only on problem areas destroys the employee’s confidence and self-esteem, makes the employee more error-prone, and makes your organization wonder why they promoted you to management.


Hold meetings, coaching sessions, and performance reviews in which the manager does the majority of the talking.
Only a rare employee will find a work environment in which he or she is talked at motivating. But, it happens frequently. Even in organizations that encourage employee involvement, managers are not always skilled at discussing performance with employees. The manager may be afraid that if he stops talking, the employee will make demands he can’t fulfill. The manager may

Only 15% reach self-actualization. I wonder how many never get beyond security? More importantly, what constrains those people? As well, we should not mistake people who are busy selling themselves and their limited ideas with anything but the security level.

I've always been a fan of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and I really appreciate this "tweaked" model because it maps it very close to the principles of employee engagement. 


 


 


 


On the survival level, I would add "I can't retire" as a common sign of disengagement.  As a supervisor, I do all I can to engage many of these staff as they often provide great context and insight as to what has been done in the past and how efforts can be optimized in order to succeed the next time we try them.

(From the article): Make cultural fit top experience when hiring. Increasing employee retention will mean improving hiring efforts. Employers should focus their efforts on acquiring candidates who are not just skilled for the position, but are also a strong cultural fit for the company. Behavior-based screening and interviewing will help to make best long-term hires. – Nathan Parcells, InternMatch

A happy and engaged workforce brings a positive return on investment for organisations and individuals. Shawn Achor, author of the Happiness Advantage, pulls together decades of research to show the positive impact of happiness on organisations. He notes that happiness at work increases sales, productivity and accuracy. Research also demonstrates that happiness has a positive effect on the health of employees, career success and perceptions about quality of life.
