Your Own Staff Motivation Plan


As discussed in the previous sections, some of the most effective ways for managers to motivate staff include giving praises; recognition; positive feedback; passing on feedback from more senior managers; and letting other staff know which staff have been responsible for praiseworthy work and/or effort. Too often staff experience 'management by mistake', where most of the feedback received is corrective or punitive for mistakes they are perceived to have made.

If staff feel that their decisions are generally supported, and when genuine mistakes are made they will be guided in the right direction; they will be more positive, confident and prepared to take on responsibility and decision-making.

When staff are shown clear expectations and when they are valued, trusted, encouraged and motivated; they will be more likely to give of their best.
