Our reader poll today asks: How well do you motivate your people?
– Extremely — they’re constantly fired up: 7.74%
– Fairly — they’re motivated most of the time: 78.64%
– Somewhat — I have to push to motivate them: 9.6%
– Not very — it’s a struggle to motivate them: 4.02%
They look to you for motivation. Motivating and inspiring your people is one of the primary services you provide to your team. Sure, their paychecks matter but they need to see where they fit in and how their work contributes to a greater goal Given that, learning new ways to motivate and inspire your people should be high on your list of skills to build. While “most of the time” is good, the incremental value of “constant” motivation makes the difference between “good” and “great.”
