Different things motivate different people…
We are all unique in what motivates us and lights us up. It’s a learned behaviour through culture and life experiences.
➡️Some people are motivated by rewards
➡️Some by being part of a team, a community
➡️And others by their own creativity
Successful managers, take the time to learn and identify what their team, clients and/or consumer behaviors, needs, wants and motivations are.
They watch, observe and ask all the right questions to identify what motivates people and as a result, they gradually start to learn what energises them from the inside out.
- What motivates you?
- Is your motivation extrinsic or intrinsic?
Take a moment now:
- List all the people you manage
- What motivates them?
- What are their needs and wants?
- What lights them up?
If you are unsure:
- Engage and ask great questions – inductive questions
🔬Do your research because It all starts from the time we start interacting and engaging with people.
Print it out. Put in shared areas. Contextualise it. Make it work for you. For your business. For your team.
I trust this has been useful and that it brings some value and insights and maybe leads to some action and change around this topic for you.
