Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation?

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation? | Next Steps | Scoop.it

Daniel Watson's curator insight, November 28, 2013 9:57 PM

 

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.

 

Sometimes it is hard for business owners to understand what motivates or demotivates their employees, and given the complex science behind motivational theory, it is not surprising that articles on the subject can be very weighty and at times incomprehensible.

 

This excellent article, suggests that trust is the key factor in determining staff motivation, and it provides a simple infographic that very neatly sums up the whole subject to allow a better understanding of the basics of employee motivation.

Sigrid de Kaste's curator insight, November 30, 2013 3:01 AM

Trust is certainly part of it...what else?

Dr. Ir. Henk Jan Jansen's curator insight, December 11, 2013 6:37 PM

Guess trust is more important than ever.

If only customers behave like students....

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, November 27, 2013 5:57 PM

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Next Steps | Scoop.it

Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.

from Nik Peachey---this article compares screen reading with paper-based text

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:10 AM

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article. I did a paper on practice modalites that involved print text vs media for learning and engagement. More papers are needed out there on such topics, as technology research studies can quickly become outdated.

Mirna Goldberger's curator insight, December 20, 2013 11:21 AM

I am definitely not made to scroll, my brain prefers printed paper.  I cannot focus and retain as well, when I read online.
