Motivation for some people is the most demanding thing to do; tell me: what really motivates you? No, it isn’t a blue-sky question; it’s about what you think about the situation you’re in NOW. It’s about the driving force that produces achievements and ultimately “success”. It’s really a very personal thing. Unfortunately, motivational coaches/instructors only try to unlock the motivation, not helping the people, by actually motivating them. It’s a myth that motivation is some sort of trick.
Motivation in the working environment is important and creates an atmosphere of pleasure and activity at the same time. It is important to create a welcoming work environment to motivate employees. I’ve over the years of going into so many businesses can immediately tell what the management is like by buzz as soon as I walk in. People do their best work when they are in an environment that makes them feel valued, where they get a “pat on the back” or a “thank you” for a job well done. These courtesies may seem simple, but managers sometimes forget to utilise them. Simple courtesies can go a long way in improving the work environment.
There are several factors managers should keep in mind when considering how to recognise and reward employees. Managers should never assume that employees feel valued just because they are productive, nor that what works for the manager in terms of recognition and reward will work for others. The “platinum rule” of managers creating rapport with employees is an important motivational tool.
