Every company, department, or team has employees who can be classified as “high achievers” . . . and those who are not included in that category.
However, these employees should not be dismissed—either literally or figuratively—without attempting to motivate them to higher levels of achievement. While this naturally requires additional time, energy, and effort to accomplish, it can be done. The result is greater individual and collective productivity and ultimately, profitability.
So what can be done to motivate those who are, well . . . unmotivated?
There are six key factors that managers and team leaders can use to motivate anybody on their team—even somebody who appears to be “terminally unmotivated.
Those six factors are as follows:
As you can see, these factors have more to do with interpersonal issues than anything else. More money was not on the list. Neither was more paid time off or a more flexible work schedule.
Instead, companies and organizations should strive to engage their employees and do so in genuine and authentic ways. The bottom line is that people want to know that the companies they work for care, including about themselves.
Disgruntled employees can be motivated to achieve more and produce more for the company. They’re just looking for the six things listed above—and they’re all things that you can give them!
