Great Tips to Increase Staff Motivation

As an employer, it is sometimes difficult to know how to motivate your staff so that you can increase productivity and experience expansion. Every person is different, and therefore, motivated in different ways. While some employees are motivated by pay rises and promotions, others will prefer recognition and praise. For some, training is a huge motivator because it encourages them to develop new skills and increase their personal performance. However, for training to be effective, it is important that the employee is willing to participate and commit to the experience. Although you cannot force this, there are ways to encourage it. Here are some motivating hints: Honesty: It is important you are honest with your employer about the training information, expectations and desired outcomes. Don’t exaggerate, dismiss problems or promise promotions if you cannot follow through. Commitment: You must be committed to the employee to encourage the employee to be [...]

How to Use Praise to Motivate Your Staff

By |2019-09-27T13:02:46+10:00December 2nd, 2015|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander Leadership, School of Business, School of Civil, Construction, Mining, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Local Goverment, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Soft Skills, Training|

Praising is a management skill that is simple, inexpensive, and inexhaustible. Praise rewards when reward is due. It builds a feeling of goodwill and motivation. It provides positive encouragement to continue good practice and creative endeavour. It has a ripple effect, providing deserved acknowledgement for the person who is performing well, and conveying to an entire staff that good work will be recognised. But it is important that the right kind of praise be given in the right way, at the right time, and for the right reasons… 1. Find something to praise in every staff member. If a compliment can boost the spirit, lack of one from important people can hurt for a long time. People need praise. If you look hard enough, you’ll catch even your borderline employees doing something right. Compliment them on that action right there and then. If you get into the habit of doing that, [...]

How YOU Can Accomplish More Through a Personal Achievement List

By |2019-09-27T13:03:17+10:00August 17th, 2015|Leadership, Qualifications, School of Business, School of Civil, Construction, Mining, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Local Goverment, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Soft Skills, Training|

Too often managers modestly, and often unjustly or even unwittingly, hide their successes from others – and indeed from themselves. They fail to understand that the simple strategy of recording personal successes can motivate, increase self-productivity, and support career advancement. The compilation of a personal achievement list can have a considerable effect on a manager’s professional life… 1. Acknowledge your achievements to date. Most managers see themselves as ‘modest achievers’. They’re so accustomed to doing what they do and what is expected of them that they rarely, if ever, class any of their accomplishments as ‘achievements’. Indeed, when people are impressed with something they’ve done – something that perhaps seems rather ordinary to them – they’re surprised. As a manager, you can use your past achievements more positively to motivate you to greater heights. To shrug off those achievements modestly, as most professionals are prone to do, or to forget [...]

Tips for Boosting Morale in the Workplace

By |2019-09-27T13:05:00+10:00April 25th, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Civil, Construction, Mining, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

‘Low morale’ is what most managers don’t want to hear when esprit among their employees is being discussed. Organisations whose morale is considered low usually lack achievement motivation and a sense of real purpose. As well, the turnover of their employees is usually high. Though reversing these trends will take time, you can be assured that you will motivate employees if you act on the following suggestions... 1. Become a morale missionary. Morale is a group phenomenon but an individual matter. We speak of high morale in a group - meaning that most of the people in the group have a good sense of esprit. Group morale, however, depends on the morale of each individual in the group. Thus, improvement in esprit de corps can be achieved only by improving the morale of every person in the group. This is best achieved through the personal missionary work of the manager. Inspirational [...]

Taking Initiative as April rolls in!

"Achievers have one crucial characteristic in common: they are constantly looking for new ways to impact their environment. The initiator knows that there are dozens of opportunities to initiate in every organisation. It's a way of looking at the world that spawns not only major breakthroughs, but a steady stream of small gains (which in retrospect often look like breakthroughs). When you decide to initiate, you become a player instead of a spectator. And though taking initiative certainly has its material rewards, the good feelings of accomplishment and control over your life are even better." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p.21. As we took a look at our goals from the start of the year in our last blog post, we wanted to share some inspiring stories with you about people who really did take initiative and didn't let anything hold them back. You too can do [...]

Organisations that place a high value on training their employees are often the most successful and thriving companies. The organisation reaps the rewards of better skilled/trained workers who are more versatile and innovative, while employees enjoy the opportunity, and privilege, of up-skilling, networking, being challenged with new ideas, and more. Employees appreciate the opportunity to do something out of their normal routine that stimulates their thinking in a new way and formalises the skills they are developing in their everyday jobs. Training only increases employee motivation and inspires them to take on more responsibility and challenges. Whether your organisation needs training in Business, Management, Project Management or Civil Construction, we can help! Introducing one of our graduates Rod Caldicott who completed the Diploma of Management with us. Hear about how this qualification has benefited him in many areas.

Five I’s of Motivation and more!

"Good managers don't motivate others. Motivation comes from within the individual. It is not something that one person does to another. What a manager must do is to find ways to enhance and reinforce the motivating forces within their employees. Employees who hear their bosses talking about motivating them may worry about being manipulated rather than motivated." Thomas Quick, The Managers Motivation Desk Book, John Wiley, NJ, 1985. Don't forget The Five-Is of motivation Interesting work. Not every aspect of a job can be interesting, but smart managers make sure that every job has interesting components. Information. Tell staff how the company makes money, how they’re doing at their jobs, and other information you can offer. Involvement. Let employees help make decisions. Independence. Give them a chance to work on their own, using a flexible schedule. Increased responsibility. More responsibility means more opportunities and more visibility in the company. All [...]

How to Motivate Employees

From the lounge-chair sports expert to the company CEO, most people have definite views on what motivates others - and they’re probably right, in part at least. Valiant attempts to convert theory into practice, however, have not always succeeded in getting people to give that little extra. The outcome often is a reversion to manipulative and kick-in-the-backside approaches. From the plethora of information and advice about motivation, here are the essential principles... 1. Understand motivation. Ultimately, there are only two types of motivation - people do what they do either out of love or out of fear. Many go to work because they fear what will happen if they don’t. Others go because they love it, the sense of achievement they get, the opportunity to meet with friends. Your challenge is to help employees love their work. 2. Focus on job enrichment. Frederick Herzberg advocated enriching people’s jobs as a [...]
