Most of us can't hit a target if we can't see it. Before you can develop plans, you have to know what you want to accomplish (your goals or targets); how you want to accomplish those goals or targets; what resources of time, money, and materials you have; and who will carry out the implementation. So set some targets for yourself, targets that you can see... and we'll start the journey to reaching them, in this third installment of our series on Motivation.
In part one of our series on Motivation we covered two of the main theories on human motivation, Maslow's Classic Hierarchy of Motivational Needs and Herzberg's Motivational versus Maintenance Factors. Both theories provide the foundation for what will be building on today. The five self-motivation tools we'll cover today can boost motivation and help you to accomplish more in your life.
It's not secret employees who feel they are valued and recognized for the work they do are more motivated, responsible, and productive. This series will touch on the tools for supervisors and managers to create a more dynamic, loyal, and energized workspace. Today's focus will be on the theories that make the foundation for motivating others.
