There is one question that managers, directors and CEO's consistently ask..."Why can't all my employees be self directed and motivated? What can I do to motivate them?" In truth the answer is pretty simple. Stop trying to motivate people!
The most successful businesses don't have to invest enormous resources in motivating people, because everyone is already motivated. They are aligned to the same purpose and share a common set of values. They "live" the values of the organisation everyday, through their behaviours, decisions and actions. The structures, processes and systems within the business help people perform rather than hindering them.
Your role, as a leader, is to make sure you are doing nothing to de-motivate people and everything to create an environment in which they can flourish. And we can help you do it.
Creating The Right Culture
Research indicates that nearly 70% of business leaders believe organisational culture provides the greatest source of competitive advantage, but fewer than 10% know how to create it.
Values and belief systems that drive people to behave in the right way day to day, combined with a clear sense of purpose and direction are at the heart of high performing cultures. Significant research has also demonstrated that raising employee engagement increases productivity and playing to people’s strengths enables employees to draw on intrinsic motivations that drive excellence.
And environment really matters. Whilst we like to think of ourselves as autonomous decision makers we are largely influenced by subconscious drivers such as Social Norms (the habits, rituals or behaviours within a community that guide our behaviours).
We can help you create lasting behaviour change by focusing on the psychological drivers of human behaviour. Work with us to discover purpose that motivates, embed values that live and create an environment that shapes the behaviours you want.
