Ah, motivation. Always a hot topic.
Motivation comes from within, and it’s based on these three needs:
How can you apply these to your team?
Autonomy – When people feel like they are in charge, they’re more motivated. So next time you assign a project, frame the information or situation in a way that gives them control.
Relatedness – When talking to team members about goals, projects and tasks, share how it helps them, the team, the company, the client and/or the world.
Competence – People feel best when they are learning and growing. Even learning unrelated to work can improve on-the-job performance. Encourage team members to follow a passion they have: salsa dancing, guitar lessons, cooking classes or even CrossFit.
More time spent on communicating the work can save time on the work.
