Motivation is Not Only Important for Business and the Career World

10 Jan

Motivation is a great tool for anyone that wants to inspire the people around them. For example, today when I first start to tutoring fist graders. I realize that they aren’t able to focus for more than five-minute. Then they want to start talking about their personal life. However, when you tell them they are doing a “good job” they actually start to focus on the task. Another example, when I tutored my students in math and they were lacking in their multiples skill. I assigned a homework to study their multiples, but the next day when I asked for the homework, no one brought it to me. Again I assigned the same homework to my students and told them “if you do the homework I will give you a coupon to ‘Jack in the Box'”.  The kids that brought the homework to me the next day. The kids were happy when they got the reward. With anything we do in life we do better, when there is a reward involved. Even if that reward is simply verbal communication like “good job” or “tapped in the back”.

Motivation is a Great Spirit

7 Jan

I believe motivation is a great spirit. The reason it is great spirit because it encourage to work hard and make you put lot effort in your work. For example, when you are at work and you feel lazy about finishing your work in correct way. But when you manager come around and said you are doing awesome job John. The you will be trying your best to do the correct to make your boss happy.

Motivation is not only give you great spirit at the workplace. It also give great spirit at anything to work hard and put the effort you have in the work. For example, when I go to the gym and do CrossFit by myself I feel lazy after first round of “FRAN” and take five-minute rest then start round. But when someone is motivating me while I am doing “FRAN” I will be so happy to work hard and not take five-minute rest between first round and second round. This I believe motivation is the key factor work hard and to finish “FRAN” less than six-minute. I am putting a video what I mean “FRAN” than my audience will be not confuse.

Myth About Employee Motivation

6 Jan

Myth #1I can motivate people”

You can’t motivate people anymore than you can empower them

 Myth #2 “Money is a good motivator”

Not really, certain things like money, a nice office and job security can help people from becoming less motivated, but they usually don’t help people to becoming less motivated.

Myth #3 “Fear is a damn good Motivator”

Fear is a great motivator–for a very short-term.

Myth #4 “I know what motivates me, so I know what motivates my employees”

You might be motivated much more by recognition of a job well done.

Myth #5 “increased job satisfaction means increased job performance”

Increased job satisfaction does not necessarily mean increased job performance.

Myth #6 “I can’t comprehend employee motivator–it’s a science”

There are some very basics steps you can take that will go a long way toward supporting your employees to motivate themselves toward increased performance to their jobs.

Money is Not Big Motivator

5 Jan

So many people believe that money is not the biggest motivator tool for the employees at the workplace. The biggest motivator for employee is staff moral and the flexiablity.  One of the flexibility employee like to have is flexibility hours because people doesn’t want hassle around in the morning with getting the kids to school, eating breakfast, and manage time to go to work without being late to work. When they have flexibility hours when they could get work. Then they will be more motivate to work hard, put more effort, and they feel more relax when they work for the company.

However, for giving the flexibility hours to employee it could cost a lot of money from the company. While you going to feel that you are losing lot of money for giving the flexibility hour but if  you lose a profitable employee from your company. The video said you going to lose four hundred pounds each day for looking for employees.

To check if your employees is motivated if by your motivation. The video mention that you could give two performance review each year to see if your motivation work or not. It is real important to find out if your employee is happy.

In conclusion, it is really important to deal with problem as quicklly as possible. How to make your employee motivate to work.
