It has been said that only we can motivate ourselves. In other words, each individual is responsible for maintaining their own energy, drive, and consistent productivity. While most of us see that this is clearly true to a large extent, it is still the responsibility of leaders to create a work environment where this is encouraged to happen.
Some leaders are responsible for work environments characterized by a lack of confidence, direction, enthusiasm, and creativity. Motivation and teamwork are minimal, both at the individual and team levels. Other leaders excel at creating an organizational environment where their teams feel motivated to achieve ever higher levels of performance and success. Team members are energized by their careers and the work they perform. Teams work collaboratively and creatively to achieve organizational goals. This module examines how leaders can foster an environment where motivation flourishes and people are encouraged to grow and do their best. It reviews the philosophies of workplace motivation developed by three prominent 20th century leadership authors, and demonstrates how Dale Carnegie’s famous principles both precede and enhance those theories of workplace motivation.
At the completion of this module, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the leader’s role as a motivator • Develop greater awareness of the needs that drive people • Recognize the relationship between expectations and motivation • Align individual motivations with organizational goals
