Imagine yourself in one of the jobs you would like to land after graduation. Thinking about the importance of personalizing motivational tactics whenever possible, identify several steps your manager could take to make sure you stay motivated. Would these steps be fair to other employees as well?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Motivation is probably your biggest challenge when it comes to managing people with low-ambition. Without an effective strategy in place, your team members will not be as productive, satisfied, and loyal as they could be.
The following strategies will help.
Get to Know Your Team
It's important to get to know the individuals within your team. The more you know about their personal lives and goals, the better you'll be able to structure rewards that keep them motivated.
For instance, a good way to motivate single parents who work part-time might be to offer them flexible working hours, or on-site daycare usually reserved for full-time workers.
A good example of this would be to get rid of an oppressive company policy such as banning the taking of personal calls at work. Trusting employees by removing these negative elements can build team trust and create loyalty.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
