Motivating learning: “Nobody ever washes a rental car” | Trainers Warehouse Blog

Motivating learning: “Nobody ever washes a rental car” | Trainers Warehouse Blog | Serious Play | Scoop.it

I started off the morning looking for some motivational words of wisdom and fell upon Scott Simmerman‘s LinkedIN contribution saying, “Nobody ever washes a rental car.” And, “if you want a teenager to wash the car, make it hers or his.” The reality is, we’re more motivated when we understand what’s in it for us and why it matters. After considering Scott’s words, I recalled Kim Marshall‘s synthesis of the “Mentor Me” article by Cryslynn Billingsley.

Billingsley suggests that learners view a few short motivational video clips at the start of learning event, then write letters to themselves describing what they will do to have a successful learning experience. If and when their motivation wanes, the group is asked to re-read their letters and reconsider their aspirations. Following is Marshall’s more complete synthesis of the article:

Skills Converged > How to Avoid Using Poor Motivational Posters

Skills Converged > How to Avoid Using Poor Motivational Posters | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Posters which are used in the workplace to remind us of the organisation’s values are often not very effective. They might be noticed the first time seen on the wall but it is then filtered out the same way we filter out those motivational posters or intrusive advertisements.

(...)

Since employees may view management-sponsored advertisements as a form of influence, it is important to consider the other part of self-advertisement too; the self.

The solution is simple; employees should be involved in the process of setting up the advertisement. If they are involved in the design and selection of these messages, not only they are more likely to accept them but also they are more likely to notice them more often in the future. After all, they fully understand and accept the philosophy behind the messages and are believers.
