An Overview of Employee Motivation: (Part 1)

An Overview of Employee Motivation: (Part 1) | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

Mainstream Thinking About Motivation

 

Motivating oneself is difficult, motivating others is even more difficult. With this in mind we need to embark on a journey of sorts - to discover and reveal what motivation truly is and how to harness and fully utilise its benefits for the development of an organisation.

 

Motivation, according to many definitions, is an employee's intrinsic enthusiasm about and drive to accomplish activities related to work. Motivation is in essence that internal drive and level of energy that causes an individual to decide to take action - usually a positive action that ensures growth, progress and general or direct improvement of conditions or performance.

 

An individual's level of motivation is influenced by biological, intellectual, social and emotional factors. As such, motivation is a complex, not easily defined, intrinsic driving force that can also be influenced by external factors. Ultimately every employee has activities, events, people, and goals in his or her life that he or she finds motivating.

Kudos's curator insight, February 2, 2014 2:32 PM

Motivating people is one of the most difficult things to do. When you do succeed in motivating a team - amazing things happen. One thing to think about is motivating on a micro and macro level. Get people to buy into the company/team, program, vision and goals. Then work with each individual to get the best performance out of them based on their individual motivators. And do not be afraid to move none believers off the team. Success happens when you have commitment from the entire etam and if you show your appreciation with good communication, empowerment, respect and recognition you will have a great chance to win their hearts and minds.

"Commitment" ... the difference between "having a job" and "making a living".  Ask yourself, are you committed to making a living?  How have you setup and developed your people so they can make a living?

MyKLogica's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:54 AM

El compromiso da alas a la organización. Aquellas organizaciones que consiguen el compromiso de sus colaboradores tienen menores costes de no calidad, mejores productividades y una mayor rentabilidad, además de cómo incide en el clima ... las recetas son sencillas y, bajo mi perspectiva, de puro sentido común, otra cuestión es que vayan por vías diferentes a cómo estamos acostumbrados.


Graeme Reid's curator insight, February 13, 2014 5:33 PM

Organisations that truly build employee commitment will be those that flourish.  Relacing a culture of fear of losing your job with that of commitment and passion will transform the workplace.

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

So what engages employees? The drivers differ region to region and person to person, but employee engagement is largely about social connections happening in organizations and aligning work experiences with employees’ cultural needs.

 

What works varies by industry, location, company size, and how much money and resources the organization has to invest into developing its culture, and its value and philosophy around employee engagement.

 

But there are factors that all highly engaged workplaces have in common.

 

How do the best places to work succeed at employee engagement?

When Robert Greenleaf first proposed servant-leadership, it was at a time when insitutions began to play an increasing role. They began to replace some of the communal ways things had been done. We are at a new intersection in time as the digital world emerges. Servant-leadership would be an important fit with its focus on mindfulness, being present, and faith in humans and something beyond us.

David Hain's curator insight, February 5, 2014 2:16 AM

Sustainable leadership comes from the heart as much as the head.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 11, 2014 4:01 PM

from the article:  "There is a better way. It’s called Servant Leadership, and it can be applied in workplaces and homes. It is an act of faith, best defined by coming alongside others, leading by example and helping the people around and under you. Using it allows you to go further in all areas of life, rather than pursuing positional leadership that dominates and dictates your employees."

Excellent questions that every leader should ask their employees!

 

Some of the questions focus on ensuring that employees have basic needs met:  such as knowing what is expected of them and having the equipment and tools to do their jobs.  

 

However, the other questions are aligned with the 5 human truths that make sure that employees: 

 - Feel important/valued/special

-  Feel heard and understood

- Feel like they belong

- Feel empowered and have control to make decisions

- Feel like they are growing and are progressing towards reaching their potential

 

What questions do you belive should be asked?
