Many employers hold the belief that “motivation” simply means rewarding good behavior and punishing bad. Those rewards and punishments often remain the same no matter what the situation is or which employee is involved.
But motivation isn’t a one-size-fits-all piece of clothing. It’s most effective when leaders adapt it to specific situations. Motivation needs to be tailored to your company’s culture at the very least and to individual employees whenever possible.
How can you begin creating an adaptable motivation strategy?
Start by understanding why employees are unmotivated in the first place. When you know what employees want from work—and what they feel is lacking—you’re in a much better position to motivate them with the incentives they most desire. (That’s probably not money, by the way.) The next step is to understand the four types of motivation. Learning how each type impacts employees lets you craft a strategy that’s specific, yet also adjustable.
