Unleashing the Power of Motivation

"There are many forms and degrees of cooperation between the worker and the management", wrote James F. Lincoln, an astute corporate leader and a member of the founding family of Lincoln Electric Company. "The worker's attitude can vary all the way from passivity to highly imaginative contributions to efficiency and progress."

Motivating through Communicating Your Strategic Focus

Motivation depends on having clear objectives. Since motivation is personal, aim to align staff's individual drives with the company's purposes in general and your unit's in particular.

Stretch Goals

"Most companies are filled with people who have no clue of the big picture what the organization is really trying to accomplish and because they don't feel that they or their contributions are important, they do their job... and nothing more".6

To unleash the power of your organization and achieve exceptional results, you must empower employees and motivate them to follow through on your strategic focus. Your business will be able to bring new products/services to the market much faster if "everyone within the organization had their heart and soul wrapped up in taking aim and shooting at the same target".6

Leadership-Management Synergy

Effective Motivation: the Art, Science and Practice

Highly motivated individuals can bring about substantial increases in productivity and job satisfaction and substantial decreases in tardiness, grievances, absenteeism, and so forth. Your motivation strategy will determine how easily you can get down and do a task... More

Inspirational Leadership: 10 Roles

Communicating

Communication strategy is a coherence linkage never to be overlooked. Communication needs to be comprehensively planned and spontaneous, as well as top-down and bottom-up. Communication processes, including the target audience, the message, the means of communication, the frequency, the rationale, and the selection of communicators, must be tailored to each purpose and constituency.

Your People Skills 360

Top organizations have a communication process that communicates the knowledge and information that people need in a way that they understand and can apply to their job. Communication is neither a separate nor a periodic task. Use every means available to let everyone working with you know your plans and your reasons. A manager should provide team members with the information they require to do a good job, communicating with them frequently, and giving them clear guidelines on the results that are expected.

Communication is a two-way relationship, so establish an enabling environment for other could give you the information you need. Use feedback to make certain that communication has become understanding and consensus. Practice management by wandering around (MBWA).

Communicate with reports and benchmarks that track business progress and anticipate issues and opportunities, for example:

  • the annual budget

  • monthly measurements and and benchmarks requiring action

     
  • key weekly measurements on which action can be taken.

Focused meetings can also foster clear effective communication, and spark action.

Yin and Yang of Communication

 Case in Point  Wall-Mart

In his 10 Rules for Building a Business Success, Sam Walton, the Founder of Wall-Mart writes: "Communicate everything you possibly can to your partners. The more they know, the more they'll understand. The more they understand, the more they'll care. Once they care, there's no stopping them. If you don't trust your associates to know what's going on, they'll know you really don't consider them partners. Information is power, and the gain you get from empowering your associates more than offsets the risk of informing your competitors."... More
