4 Reasons Good Employees Lose Their Motivation – Thrive Global

Motivation
Motivation — the willingness to get the job done by starting rather than procrastinating, persisting in the face of distractions, and investing enough mental effort to succeed — accounts for 40% of the success of team projects. Yet managers are often at a loss as to how to effectively motivate uninspired employees. Our review of research on motivationindicates that the key is for managers to first accurately identify the reason for an employee’s lack of motivation and then apply a targeted strategy. Carefully assessing the nature of the motivational failure — before taking action — is crucial. Applying the wrong strategy (say, urging an employee to work harder, when the reason is that they’re convinced they can’t...

5 Simple Ways to Stay Motivated at Work – Thrive Global

Motivation
Even if we love what we do, we may find our motivation at work waning from time to time. It happens to the best of us, and when it does, it can compromise our focus, productivity and confidence.
