Can you cut the tension and anxiety lingering in the air of your business with a knife? Are there no smiles in your office and little upbeat interaction between your employees? They’re probably not being properly motivated to do their jobs and your business is probably suffering for it. So, how do you motivate your employees and what will it do for you?
Poor Motivation = Poor Productivity
Your drive, belief in your product or service, and your desire to succeed is what motivated you to start a business and develop it to the point of hiring employees, but what happens if your employees don’t share that same drive, belief and desire? The short answer is poor productivity.
Poor productivity is a business killer and is directly related to poor employee motivation. Poor employee motivation tends to be related to a lack of vision, belief and desire to succeed.
Powerful Motivation = Powerful Productivity
When on one side you have poor motivation, the flip side is powerful motivation. Powerful motivation provides vision, belief and a desire to succeed which matches your own. It is powerful motivation because it empowers your employees to be more productive.
What does powerful motivation do for you? Powerful productivity makes a major impact on the bottom line for your business because each dollar spent on producing your product or service is used for that purpose.
Powerful motivation focuses on making employees happier
How do you make employees happier? A paycheck and benefits package just isn’t enough. To be happier, employees need to see that they have purpose in the larger scheme of your company. In order to see that purpose, you have to communicate your drive, your belief in your product or service and your desire to succeed to your employees. You do that by revealing the vision and purpose of the company and show each employee where they fit into fulfilling that vision.
