No matter the size of your organization, having a team of motivated, hard-working employees is crucial to success. When individuals lose their motivation, job performance suffers — employees become less productive, less creative, less of an asset to the company.
Motivating employees begins with recognizing that to do their best work, people must be in an environment that meets their basic emotional drives to acquire, bond, comprehend, and defend.
The management of people at work is an integral part of the management process. A well-managed organization usually sees an average worker as the root source of quality and productivity gains. An effective organization will make sure that there is a spirit of cooperation and sense of commitment and satisfaction within the sphere of its influence.
Managers need to motivate employees, but businesses also need to motivate their managers. Success is dependent on motivated managers to set the tone and pace for the operation, and they must develop skills to stay engaged, interested and forward-looking.
