Do you know what motivates every individual?

02 Aug

As a leader…do you know what motivates every individual in your organization??

Do you know why each individual comes to work each day…and earns a living working with you??

What are the driving forces behind each individual…that makes them get up every morning…fight the traffic…and come to work for your organization??

I can tell you…if you don’t take the time to see what motivates every individual in your organization…you will not succeed at a high level…

There are several motivations that a human being has…that drives them to do the things they want to do…and it isn’t all money…

Here are a few of the things that motivate people to do… what they do…not in any certain order…

Number one…is a person that wants consistency…

They want the feeling of being certain… that they have a fulfilling job…and that they are stable within it…

This type of person doesn’t like a lot of change in their lives…they feel comfortable in knowing that their lives are the same…pretty much every day…

Number two…is a person that thrives on change…

They love the daily challenge of something new and fresh…

They would get bored with the “same old routine”…day in and day out…

This type of person…lives for the unknown…and needs the constant stimulation… that the unknown provides…

Number three…is a person that needs to feel important…or special…

They always want to feel needed…and play a significant part… in any situation…

They strive to be an important player in your organization…and they want to be recognized for it…

Number four…is a person that needs to feel a closeness or a union with someone or something…

They need to feel loved…and have a connection…in both their business and personal lives…

Without that love…they feel disconnected…and alone…

Number five…is a person that has that insatiable desire to grow…and expand their world…

They want all of the latest technologies…and they want to be able to use them…

They want to acquire…all of the knowledge the world has to offer…and then apply it to expand their capacity in life…

And finally…number six…is a person that wants to be a true leader…

This person wants to contribute to the betterment of society…

They have a sense of service… and focus on helping…giving…and supporting others…

This type of person knows…that it is not about crossing the finish line first…but rather…how many can I take across the finish line with me…

A person can be any or all of these things…

They can have one…two…three…four…five…or a combination of all of these traits…

In order to lead your organization…to its highest level…you…as a leader…need to know what motivates each and every one of your employees…

Knowing what motivates an individual…and then leveraging that motive…will help you maximize that person to their greatest potential…

And then…you will have succeeded in being that true leader…knowing that you have identified what is important to someone…and then helping them fulfill their ambitions on their own level…

    The commodity that motivates people is an intangible and therefore not thought of as a motivator. It is a basic principle of physics and can only be valued by someone who has no more of it. Wealth or exceptional business accumen can not buy more. Ask the richest person in the world as they look skyward what they would give up to have one more day and they will say “everything.” So ask yourself again what is the ultimate motivator.
