Which Leads to More Success, Reward or Encouragement?

Which Leads to More Success, Reward or Encouragement? | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

We are a society that puts a huge emphasis on rewards, and a school of psychology is based on it. In behavioral psychology, an American invention, there are two ways to stimulate a response from someone, either reward them or punish them. This two-way mechanism works with lower animals - dog and horse trainers, for example, use food treats to reinforce the behavior they want - so it should work with humans, or so the logic goes. If you want a certain behavior out of prisoners, for example, behaviorists advise giving privileges as a reward for obeying the rules and punishment for disobeying them.

The duality of encouragement-discouragement has its advantages, although they don't come to mind as easily as earning a reward in terms of money and promotion.

The key to being "Highly Promotable" is to stay focused on today's work and not tomorow's outcome. If you want a promotion stop working "for the promotion" and praise. Instead start working for the sake of good work, and produce outcomes today that show evidence of movement toward the person you are trying to become.

It has been shown that when employees in an organization associate the leadership’s power with expert or referent power, they are more engaged, more devoted to the organization and their role within it. Employees are also more willing to go the extra mile to reach organizational goals.

Great list of research on the business case for employee engagement. The numbers are compelling, Why more companies are not doing anything about it is confusing.

But emplyee egagement is identifed as a top four priorty by CEO's  in the enxt 3 to 5 years  – so the future looks more like it could be more engaging.

Kudos's curator insight, November 2, 2013 7:50 PM

This is a great article. Very true about coaching and providing regular feedback. I do believe you also need to outline and discuss repoonsibilities and set goals together then hold your athlete, I mean employee, accountable. When they succeed - recognize that success.

 

Performance reviews are continuous. And guess, one of the responsiblities of each team member is to be part of that process by activitly seeking feedback and being honest about their own efforts and engagement. 

 

If if you feel you are being ignored ask the hard question, what have I done to be noticed or manage my career.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, November 11, 2013 7:39 PM

 

[KEY POINTS in Plain English]

 

There’s a misunderstanding that employees create a company’s culture — for example: how they dress, how they do business and how they communicate. If you observe a company’s employees, it is easy to think they’re both the result and the creators (cause)  of the culture.

 

But Leadership is the real foundation of any organization's culture.

 

The leader is the visionary who sets the direction and style of the company’s personality. The leader creates internal culture through the people s/he hires, the information s/he provides and the resources s/he makes available.

 

Leadership ultimately (finally) determines the culture of a company. The leader develops it and maintains it — whether it is good or bad.

 

But if you’re the creator of an unhealthy culture, you can also be its cure.

 

[Or, is it better to hire a new, transformational leader to implement  the required change?]

(From the article): Leadership is all about taking risks and knowing when to take them.   If you don’t feel comfortable being uncomfortable  – courageous enough to see and seize opportunities that others don’t and do what others won’t – it is impossible to be  an effective leader.   These are the fundamentals of sustainable leadership.   So look around you and ask yourself the following question:  Has your leadership style become outdated?
