Best way for Motivation.[ Few Tips.]
I see motivation in animals also.
Lack of Motivation leads to Laziness and fellow workers as also superiors contempt.
My driver never opens the car bonnet to look what goes where,what does what,why this here,who made this,Is this in other cars,how does it work,what drives this from where,how to fix it,how can I learn this dam thing.
I tell him again and again to even take a paid leave and go to the garage to learn and will arrange the training,no he watches his cell phone to see his girl friend's picture,trying to make out when she will take a bath.
How can we motivate such persons,young in age,from a poor family,not even attended a high school.Previous driver wanted a job in a govt department,so he can earn extra money by way of bribe since all his friends were taking bribe.
Making money and doing the work which a robot can do non stop 24 x 7 is all many of the young boys want to do.Some even do not want a promotion since they would be transferred in the new post and will have to relocate in a strange place.
Even educated graduates do not want to change there jobs since the present company is the best and give bonus of 33% each year.They would sweep to keep their jobs and do what ever is being told to do and never ask a question.
How do you motivate such persons:-
1 ) Give them in house training on motivation.
2 ) Send them to attend conferences on motivation.
3 ) Give them extra pay for purchase of books to improve their knowledge.
4 ) Arrange visits to the other institutions who do the same job.
5 ) Call them to your office and talk to them on their work.
6 ) Give them recognition if they suggest cost saving techniques.
7 ) Use a platform to make them talk on a subject.
8 ) Use KAIZAN technique at all levels.[ Administration & Executive Areas.]
9 ) Arrange lectures on KAIZAN.[ Helps to improve continuously.]
My self motivation to do better than my colleges took me from the lowest to the top most position in my area of professional career in very short intervals.None of my class mates could reach the position that I reached.
