(From the article): Every person is motivated. Whether motivation comes from people and activities you love such as your spouse, children, hobbies, cooking, philanthropy, or work, you experience motivation. Employee motivation at work is situational. Motivation depends upon the needs and wants that are intrinsic to the employee and the employee’s expectations and needs from work.

 

The interaction of the employee's needs and wants with their company's values,employment practices, expectations of the employee, quality of leadership and supervision, and more, influences and creates motivation in your workplace - or not. Readers have shared what contributes to or destroys their motivation at work.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 28, 2015 2:54 AM

Employee recognition is an important way of ensuring loyalty, faith and trust in an organisation. It is true that the amount of recognition required would vary from person to person. People in leadership positions also need recognition, though not in the form of flattery. Celebrating more often, appreciating and praising employees more, goin on retreats, showing interest in employee's hobbies and interests, 'thank you' cards, colourful certificates, can all help boost employee morale.

10 Principles of Leading Change Management

10 Principles of Leading Change Management | Management | Scoop.it

Since the mid-2000s, organizational change management and transformation have become permanent features of the business landscape. Vast new markets and labor pools have opened up, innovative technologies have put once-powerful business models on the chopping block, and capital flows and investor demand have become less predictable. To meet these challenges, firms have become more sophisticated in the best practices for organizational change management. They are far more sensitive to and more keenly aware of the role that culture plays. They’ve also had to get much better on their follow-through.

Yet according to a 2013 Strategy&/Katzenbach Center survey of global senior executives on culture and change management, the success rate of major change initiatives is only 54 percent. This is far too low. The costs are high when change efforts go wrong—not only financially but in confusion, lost opportunity, wasted resources, and diminished morale. When employees who have endured real upheaval and put in significant extra hours for an initiative that was announced with great fanfare see it simply fizzle out, cynicism sets in.

Lean leadership is about creating habits for improvements that become so habitual that you do not think of doing it (Jeff Liker, 2015).

Why do most firms fail in their lean transformations? Because they have not understood the power of lean leadership, says Professor Jeffrey Liker. I spent the last two days together with the Norwegian aluminum producer Hydro ASA, listening to and learning from Liker. Here is a brief reflection on the essentials of lean leadership.

Creative Leadership Means Being Present

Creative Leadership Means Being Present | Management | Scoop.it

We need leaders that are able to change the future. Creative leaders. The paradox with these leaders is that those that seem to be best at shaping the future are all firmly rooted in the now. These leaders really know how to connect to what is happening in the present, and can feel and use how it affects them on a deeper personal level. They are not just reacting on impulses; they are giving true answers to themselves and to the people around them, continuously. This ability goes by many names, call it being in the here and now, call it Mindfulness, Connected or Aligned. We prefer to simply call it Presence.

The truth about social media marketing for lead generation

The truth about social media marketing for lead generation | Management | Scoop.it

Lead generation might be a top goal for B2B marketers in 2015, but social media isn’t where they’re expecting to bring in qualified prospects, according to a new BrightTalk report.

 

In fact, social media and print advertising ranked the lowest on a list of 15 different lead generation tactics. A full 30 percent said these are ineffective lead gen tools and just 12 percent said they’re highly successful. On the contrary, email marketing was cited as the top tool, with 55 respondents saying it’s effective.

 

In an era when 7 out of 10 people utilize social media (and the average social media user is active 2 hours and 25 minutes daily), this is unsettling data. Marketers who consider social media ineffective for lead gen need to reconsider their current strategies and revamp what they’re doing to both promote the brand and nurture people to take the next step to learn more....

Matt Lambert's curator insight, August 14, 2015 5:03 AM

The data is interesting, but "B2B" doesn't make much sense as a single entity from a lead generation point of view. Depending on whether the products and services are horizontal or vertical markets, direct or channel, the strategies and tools are different.

 

Which audience are we talking about, the ones that find you, or the one's you go out and find. They have completely different characteristics.

 

The figures above are presumably averages of the two approaches.

 

Then, both Social and Email marketing can be lead gen tools, but more often used for nurturing, a second stage process.


So, average of different strategies, and an average of different stages.

 

Is it not like saying "the players in my football team averaged 4 goals each last season". This wouldn't tell us what our striker is worth would it?
