MANAGEMENT LESSON - PERFORMANCE EQUATION

Motivation refers to the processes that account for an individuals willingness to exert high levels of effort to reach organizational goals, conditioned by the efforts ability to satisfy some individual need.

Motivation can be defined as the factors which energize, direct and sustain employee behaviour.

Motivation is defined as the process that initiates, guides and maintains goal-oriented behaviours. It involves the biological, emotional, social and cognitive forces that activate behaviour.

DEFINITION OF MOTIVATIONOrganizations with highly motivated employees tend to be:

More profitableExperience lower staff turnoverDeliver higher levels of customer service and productivityBenefit from greater innovation

THE VALUE OF MOTIVATIONINSIDE JOB - A motive is an inner drive, stimulus or incentive to satisfy a human need of some kind.

CUSTOMIZATION - People differ from one another and no one has the same needs so people will be motivated differently. Different strokes for different folks.

CITIZEN KANE Employees who experience a heightened sense of emotional connection with the organization, demonstrate higher levels of motivation.

MONEY MYTH financial rewards are more of a mover than a motivator

Business Leaders and Managers need to adopt a targeted (rifle) approach and not a hit and miss (shotgun) approach to employee motivation one size fits all is inappropriate

Business Leaders and Managers need to transform employees into associates (sense of ownership) and brand/company ambassadors

Business Leaders and Managers need to develop a bouquet of recognition-oriented strategies and de-emphasize the value of monetary rewards
