Motivation for Staff

If you are a boss, business owner or staff member every person needs and wants to have an exceptional day at work. This article examines ways to propel yourself as well as your staff forward to that 'great day.'

Demotivating Factors

A large portion of us have a work position which involves monotony on some scale. The same general work place, customary work hours and the same standard jobs or tasks. With the wrong attitude it is a simple formula for losing fulfillment, motivation and satisfaction in a work environment, in yourself or in your staff. In the event that you've perceived and noticed you are not feeling satisfied at work you may be searching for a change. In the event that it's your supervisor who has noticed, he or she may be searching for an additional staff member.

Both solutions are drastic. Altering occupations will often put you in the same scenario just in a different seat, and if your manager would not like to waste unnecessary recruitment and training expenses, sacking workers isn't the answer either.

Motivation of Staff

Motivating your staff or yourself isn't always easy but it is possible.

I encountered a ton of monotony in the 3100 mile race (lets face it, circling the same New York city block for 18 hours a day for over 50 days isn't about variety) yet I stayed upbeat, positive and centered. On the odd instances when I was down and discouraged time dragged by. I would watch the clock, praying for the day to end. My velocity slowed and self-pity overpowered me. I would ask, why did I enter this race? Why am I here? What is the purpose of putting myself through this misery? Which in connection to a work environment compares to: What am I doing here? Today is going so slowly. I can't get past this hurdle?

You will discover a lot of your own and others motivation originates from overall attitude and enthusiasm in the work place rather than your position or rank in a company. I have met checkout personnel in a super market that have seemed infinitely happier than CEO's that are on multi-million dollar salaries.
