Comments Off on MENTOR MONDAY: Let’s Talk About Motivation

This month we explored motivation, how it contributes to employee satisfaction and the direct impact that leaders have on motivation.

This is such an important topic. When we conduct 360 feedback assessments in organizations, employees tell us just what it is their leaders do that is most motivating.  They also tell us what demotivates them the most. After all, a demotivated employee is more likely to quit the company. And we all know the costs of employee turnover.

Are you one of the 3%?.

It’s been said that it takes 28 days to create a new habit. That means after those infamous new year’s resolutions have been made, if we can just maintain those resolutions for the first fours weeks, we’ll be off and running on the road to success.  Right?

In theory, that’s correct.  In reality, New Year’s Resolutions are largely a waste of time.  Why? Because they are emotional promises with little commitment.

Listen in to this discussion with members of the Sage Leaders community as Sylva Leduc (of Sage Leaders inc.) talks about the 3% and how to increase success through creating SMART goals and a powerful plan of action.

This SAGE podcast is 54 minutes

Let’s make 2010 your Best Year Yet.
