Theretherefore is no cookie-cutter approach to motivating your people. What inspires one person may leave the next cold. When you understand an employee's thinking and behavioral preferences, you'll be able to maximize his or her enthusiasm. This will help you get your workforce aligned and moving in the same direction, and you'll see incredible returns.

To Anyone Who Thinks They're Falling Behind In Life

To Anyone Who Thinks They're Falling Behind In Life | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

You don't need more motivation. You don't need to be inspired to action. You don't need to read any more lists and posts about how you're not doing enough.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"You don't need more motivation or inspiration to create the life you want. You need less shame around the idea that you're not doing your best. You need to stop listening to people who are in vastly different life circumstances and life stages than you tell you that you're just not doing or being enough. You need to let timing do what it needs to do. You need to see lessons where you see barriers. You need to understand that what's right now becomes inspiration later. You need to see that wherever you are now is what becomes your identity later."

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science — specifically Dr. Edward Deci, hundreds of Self-Determination Theory researchers, and thousands of studies — instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence.

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, November 28, 2014 4:55 PM

This struck such a cord with me.  I can pin point the moment when I recognised that my life was my responsibility, and can see the energy that flowed from that realisation and how it's influenced every decision and action in my life. We introduce the idea to our students in a general way, (Why is it your Mum's fault that you left your homework at home?Isn't it your responsibility?) but certainly don't help them to appreciate it deeply in their lives.

Jason Leong's curator insight, January 3, 2015 12:14 AM

"Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science [...] instead points to three universal psychological needs.

Want to Motivate Your Employees? Tell Them Why Their Work Matters

Want to Motivate Your Employees? Tell Them Why Their Work Matters | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

I’m a strong advocate for small business owners who take the time and patience to teach their staff why the work they do matters to the business. All too often, busy entrepreneurs tell their staff what to do, and walk away. Then they busy themselves with the next fire that needs to be put out or work that needs to be delegated.

Keith Meyer's curator insight, September 16, 2013 10:43 PM

As a boss, employer or manager, the art of delegation of work is best achieved through proper communication, understanding of a persons capabilities, and the imparting of all relevant facts associated with the task. 

Jeffrey Ross's comment, September 17, 2013 4:16 PM
I am a real believer of "Management by Objective".

Losing Motivation? Write Yourself Fan Mail. Really.

Envision your work's impact on someone for a spurt of motivation.

 

Will your book get a great testimonial? Write it out. Will your talk move someone in the audience to change and to let you know about it? What did they say? Will this new product gain shelf space at the local market? Take a picture.

Writing yourself fan mail in advance and picturing the change you’ve announced you’re trying to make is an effective way to push yourself to build something that actually generates that action.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

From the article: "Prepare for the possibility failure and rejection, but don’t expect it. Writing this “fan mail” out will help you envision what success will look and feel like, and will motivate you to put more into your art."

This makes perfect sense.
