A recent Gallup study states that 85% of employees are not engaged at work. The economic consequences of this is approximately $7 trillion in lost productivity… this is staggering. Join me as I interview Dr. Cathy Bush and Dr. Tara Peters, the authors of The Demotivated Employee.
In this podcast I discuss the emotional intelligence skill of internal motivation. Intrinsic motivation is a deep drive or desire to do the right things for the right reasons. This is the opposite of extrinsic motivation, which is nothing more than a desire to avoid punishment or a yearning to gain a reward such as recognition, success, influence, or money.
If there’s one thing that most everyone in leadership can agree upon, it’s that employee engagement is important. We all want businesses that are thriving and that isn’t going to happen if our employees are apathetic and disengaged. So, how do we avoid employee disengagement, and how do we fix it when it happens?
In this recorded webinar, Jeff talks about how gone are the days of carrot and stick motivation and micro-management. Today’s business environment calls for leaders who can nurture intrinsic motivation and autonomy. During this session, leaders and managers will learn how to motivate their teams to solve their own complex problems. With this, they will realize a higher level of emotional intelligence within their organization. A higher level of emotional intelligence signifies that people are encouraged and inspired. Check out this recorded webinar and discover the value intrinsic motivation, learn to be a leader who inspires others to be the best they can be and create an environment of accountability and trust.
Have you ever noticed that we live in an unpredictable world that demands predictable results? As today’s rapid pace of change continues, it creates new problems everyday – problems that need to be solved even when we don’t have all the answers. This isn’t a world where you can succeed if you’re afraid of taking the first step. Now, more than ever, we need self-starters: people who are intrinsically motivated, proactive, action-oriented and comfortable taking the initiative.
If you don’t already see yourself as a self-starter, it’s time to cultivate certain skills.
