How To Motivate Employees

In Eric Jacobson Leadership, Motivation on September 19, 2014 at 6:07 pm

Julian Birkinshaw shares the three drivers of discretionary effort (motivation) from employees in his new book, Becoming a Better Boss:

  1. Material drivers, including salary, bonuses, promotion, and prizes
  2. Social drivers, including recognition for achievement, status, and having good colleagues
  3. Personal drivers, including freedom to act, the opportunity to build expertise, and working for a worthwhile cause

Take a moment now to reflect on where your business excels and where it falls short.
