Sponsored Article

People’s motivations are defined by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Everyone in your team will be in a different starting place – your role is to understand where they are so you can engage their motivations.

 

The top three motivators in the graphic translate into being proud and fulfilled by your place in the team; being valued for your role; and the ability to develop, grow and value yourself as an individual.

 

These are key drivers for longterm motivation, which the leader should focus on.

Engaging motivations

A leader is the ‘chief story-telling officer’, who relates the overall team/ business goals to each person’s motivations. Why is it relevant and important to that individual?

 

Hold group meetings to set vision and culture, and monthly individual reviews to discuss what motivates that person, how their work can reflect this and review progress. Informal weekly chats will also help.

Demotivators

Demotivaters usually revolve around company policies, supervision, relationships with supervisor and peers, work conditions, salary, status, security, or failure to achieve the motivators as above. These are often resolved at a company level.

What makes you tick?

For you to invest the time, effort and energy to take your team with you, you need your own motivation to be high and for you to see the goals as significant to you too.

 

This is likely to involve selfactualisation; what is in it for you?
