Employee Appreciation Is Vital to Productivity | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it
Even if you are a two-man operation, you have to realize that showing appreciation to your teammate is crucial if your business is going to be as productive as you want it to be.

Via Mike Klintworth
Graeme Reid's insight:

It does not cost much and can have a significant effect on motivation, but too often people's contribution is taken for granted.

Five Steps to Integrating Coaching into your Talent Management Strategy

Five Steps to Integrating Coaching into your Talent Management Strategy | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Now more than ever, there is a great opportunity to bring coaching into organizations. According to Gallup’s study on the global workplace, only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work or are psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations. Therefore, 63% are "not engaged." If this is the case, then why not integrate coaching into your talent management strategy, not only to increase employee engagement, but to achieve other talent development goals such as developing certain competencies like problem-solving, strategic thinking or filling your talent pipeline with ready-now talent for upward or lateral assignments?

In order to integrate coaching into your talent management strategy, Renee Robertson recommends the following five steps should be taken.

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Here's the central law of employee motivation, of coaxing a great performance from your employees, day after day: Employees who are selected, oriented, and reinforced properly, and who are surrounded by peers of the same caliber, will thrive when given significant autonomy. Otherwise, they'll wither.

 

There are dozens of studies to support this, inside and outside of business life.

The case for autonomy: just look in the mirror.

How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism

How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Many of my clients deal with a fear of criticism. I see it in several aspects of their lives. At work, people fear criticism from their managers and colleagues, so they keep quiet and don't share their opinions. They play it safe. At home, people fear that they'll be criticized by their spouse or partner, so they don't speak their mind. They back down when they sense conflict. In friendships, people often don't have boundaries because they fear that establishing them would lead to criticism or that they would be viewed as selfish.

 

Whatever the setting, it's this fear that keeps people stuck. For example, by not speaking up and not sharing your ideas, you'll never advance. People won't know your thoughts and will have no reason to recognize your worth and promote you.

A very positive article. Well worth reading.

Edwin Abdiel Rodz's curator insight, July 9, 2:13 PM

We all go through the fear of criticism.  Be it about your business, video or even your talent in general.  Fear in itself is a very paralyzing thing, but when it reaches the topic that will source your future it tends to be taking even more seriously than it really is. 


There's this phrase that really calmed me down when I launched my first android app and started receiving negative ratings (not even many... just 2 out of 50).  "Don't sweat it; you have knowledge now".  

Knowledge is the antidote of fear after all.  Criticism shouldn't become a fear because it's actual knowledge of something that could be modified.  


Here are a few tips of how to handle criticism correctly.    There's never any reason to be scared of criticism.
