Motivation - Your Job Or Theirs?

Posted by My Own Coach Ltd on 10:00 with No comments
Is it your job to motivate the team?

Surely, a leader's job is to ensure that the team are motivated, whether doing the motivating or not.

There has to be an element of self motivation in there as well.

How well do you ensure that your team understand themselves and each other?

Do they know their own motivations and values? And, if so, do they know how to use this knowledge?

Your role as leader is to develop your team so that they have the drive and purpose to be self motivated to achieve their own goals, as well as the organisation's. In order to do this, it is essential that you know yourself first and foremost.

As Stephen Covey wrote in his best selling book Seven Habits:
"seek first to understand, then be understood"
