Not many small business owners realize there are different methods of motivation. Some get responses quickly but are short lived and others are the foundations of a healthy, strong business.
There are Three Ways to Motivate Yourself and Your Employees. You can be…
1 Motivated by Fear
This is the ability to prompt yourself or your staff to action because you fear what will happen if you don’t.
2 Motivated by Profit
Profits and wealth fuel this desire by you and your staff.
3 Motivated by Purpose
You and your staff are motivated because you believe what you’re doing matters and you want to get better at it.
There are appropriate times to use all three. The key is to know what each method can accomplish and when to use it effectively. Watch for my future blogs to understand each method in detail.
