SUSTAINABLE EMPLOYEE MOTIVATION: 25 YEARS OF PRACTICAL WISDOM FROM THE TRENCHES

Motivation is the fuel that feeds employee productivity. Without it, nothing gets done accurately or on time. Leaders possess an immense amount of power in creating a motivational environment for their employees. This program is designed to show leaders how executing the fundamentals of leadership greatly impacts the motivational choices employees make to work faster, harder and smarter. Conversely, this program will show leaders the unintended consequences of choosing not to execute their job description. Leaders must understand that employees need a reason to come to work and bring their best performance. That reason has to be more than a paycheck. If not, leaders run the risk of creating “paycheck employees,” who only come to work for a paycheck, or “transactional employees,” who only perform work they are paid, nothing more or less and won’t do more unless they are paid more. What does this mean for today’s leaders? Lost productivity, lackluster customer service (if employees don’t care about their work, they won’t care about customers) low morale, and ultimately lower profits.
