To motivate or not to motivate, that is the question – so goes the famous old verse. It has become clear now that motivation is the key that opens the door towards profitability and productivity. The answer to this dilemma has become clear to convention speakers. It also depends on your expectations.
The Question of Motivation
If you want to have low productivity, less competence and no working management, then you can choose not to motivate your employees. Convention speakers know that you want your company to grow and develop, then you will find it useful to motivate your staff. In fact, motivation has become like the air we breathe: we do not see it, but it is vital to us. People need to be motivated; they expect you to give positive feedback honestly. If you, as a manager, cannot provide this, you should expect the black clouds of dissatisfaction over your head.
Proven by Science
A research conducted in 2009 revealed a surprising truth. The employees were asked to state the main reason they would leave their current job. Money? No. The vast majority said that the top reason for leaving a job was getting away from a bad manager. Surprising, isn’t it? So, either you show your staff some appreciation or you are doomed to be a bad manager, and a bad manager is not a manager at all. Convention speakers suggest that the next mantra you use should be: Motivate! Motivate! Motivate!
