When a business hits rapid growth it’s easy to hope that employee motivation is taken care of by the company’s success alone. However, leaders should not rely on this.
Leaders should pay attention to elements of motivation so they do not flag motivation.

Elements of Motivation

  1. People - the team a person works with day in and day out 
  2. Ownership - team members should assume ownership for their work
  3. Goals - clear goals are necessary to hone intuition and sustain motivation
  4. Mission - give teams the opportunity to share what they’re working on with the rest of the organization, and repeat your mission often

How to Stop Flagging Motivation

  • Output
    • Ask yourself why you are not seeing the outputs you expect.
    • If your team feel like owners and understand their goals and how they fit into the mission of the company they should be motivated
  • Conversation
    • The easiest way to diagnose flagging motivation is to create more opportunities for people to talk to you
  • Incorporate elements
    • The elements of motivation are all the more powerful when sequenced and stacked on each other
