Motivation as a Management Responsibility

In any conversation about successful management, the topic of “motivation” comes up as a key part of the job. It certainly is an important contributor to morale and productivity. People who are in an environment where effective motivation occurs are much more likely to feel challenged and energized. It leads to high-performance. It is such an important ingredient that companies an business schools spend a lot of time teaching it, right? Wrong!

Give me a break. I spent 40+ years in two very successful companies and almost no training on How To Motivate people occurred. How can this be? The answer is simple. How to motivate people is a very hard thing to teach. What happens is companies find someone that seems to know how to do it and make managers out of them. If you are a potential manager with a lot of the right traits for leadership but are not adept at motivating people…you better find training on your own. Would love to hear any good ideas…
