Everyone is Unique August 15, 2007Posted by Tariq Ahmed in Motivation.
Our other entries discuss various methods of motivation; so today we’ll discuss the nuances of the human being.
When implementing motivational techniques we must remember every employee is different. As a manager, you must discover the unique psyche of an employee and hone the techniques for them. You must experiment with an individual employee to determine what makes them tick, and what they value.
Some may value strictly financial rewards, others value public praise, a fast career track, or other non-tangibles.
Spend some time getting know your employees, and experiment with various motivational methods. Always remember, that while motivating may be part of your job; it shouldn’t consume all your time. If it does, there may not be a problem with your methods, but a problem with the employee.
