Are you looking for a better approach to motivation in the workplace? That’s a great start, as demonstrates your desire to improve employee performance in a way that is positive for both you and your employees.
The “old school” approach to managing through pressure and threatening just doesn’t work! In fact, it has a negative effect on employee performance over the long term. And it takes it toll on you – the manager. Most of us don’t like to be the bad guy. Confrontation is uncomfortable, and even stressful for some supervisors.
The good news is that there’s a better way! It involves a process of goal setting, feedback and motivation. And for those that are just starting out with performance management – perhaps you haven’t yet learned how to set goals and give feedback. So let’s talk about motivation and where you can start to get the best results.
What are some ways to motivate employees?
We may think that employees should be self-motivated – but we also need to consider our role as a manager to either increase or decrease motivation. And while salary and bonuses are often considered the main motivators – the truth is that there are so many other things that managers can offer to motivate employees. And some of them require very little effort!
What can I do to get some quick wins with employee performance?
