Most of us work more effectively when we have something to work towards or an outcome that we approve of. As different things motivate different people, as Herzberg’s Theory suggests, what will motivate each individual will be a mix of satisfaction and non-dissatisfaction.
As a supervisor or Team Leader, one of your primary responsibilities is to get your employees to produce desirable results through specific behaviours. To do this, you have to get them to actually change their behaviour patterns. The key principle to understand in changing employees’ behaviour is that you can’t change it for them; they must change it themselves. With that principle in mind, we will be looking at a number of strategies we could use to motivate employees to change their behaviour.
