Do you want to motivate your entire base of team members? Chances are your organization wants to make this happen. Yet you probably are limited by the constraints of time and budget.
Fortunately, there are many inexpensive motivation solutions that will work well with your team members of any level and education. Here are three quick tips you can use immediately in your entire organization (watch the video at http://vimeo.com/victorprime/tmjuly to see three-time Super Bowl winner Mike Ditka discuss this topic):
Provide impact: Team members of every rank and generation are more motivated when they understand why their work is meaningful. Is your janitor just cleaning up? Wouldn’t it be better if he felt he was creating a healthy environment in which everyone can excel? Is your admin, Bob, just scheduling meetings or is he empowering CEO Jennifer so she can lead? Is your CEO just running things, or is she providing vision? Show your people their big-picture impact.
Give a reason: Study after study demonstrates that if you give someone a reason when making a request, that person is more motivated to help you. So instead of asking someone to bring you coffee...ask them to bring you coffee so you can wake up and handle the day better. You’ll see that people relate to you and want to be more helpful.
Incentivize: While it is a great idea to give out small incentive prizes such as movie tickets, you can be even more economical. Start out with having your people write some simple traditional paper thank-you cards to one another. Then mail the cards. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how motivation increases.
