Smart leaders can turn change from exhausting to exhilarating by asking employees to open their imaginations. This type of strong work motivation stems from the three M’s: mastery, meaning and membership. Money is a distant fourth.
Mastery. Help people develop deep skills. Even in the most seemingly routine areas, when people are given stretch goals and difficult problems to tackle, they can do things faster, smarter, and better.
Meaning. Reinforcing a larger mission and purpose can make even mundane tasks feel significant. Discussing how your products or services can improve the world affects employees’ priorities and decisions.
- Membership. Foster community by honouring individuality and encouraging employees to bring outside interests to work. Create frequent opportunities to meet people across the organisation to help your team get to know one another more deeply.
