Train Managers on these 23 Motivational Tips

"In yesterday's Advisor, we heard from one expert on the importance of training managers on your employee recognition programs. Today, we look at 23 motivational tips for managers and employees."

Train your managers to use these motivational tips for their personal motivation as well as passing them on to employees. No matter what you do for a living, the key to success is motivating yourself, each and every day, according to Geoffrey James.

“Most people don’t realize that motivation mostly emerges from minor changes in your own behavior,” says James, who gives these keys to remaining a go-getter even when the going gets tough:


Do Your Managers Know How to Reward and Motivate Employees?

"Your managers won't know how to reward employees if you don’t train them on your organization's informal and formal recognition programs. In today's Advisor, we hear from an expert on how to train managers and supervisors on this critical skill for employee satisfaction and retention."

Many companies do not provide training to managers and supervisors on their recognition and reward programs, says Kimberly Abel, vice president of Employee Solutions for Maritz Motivation Solutions. In fact, only 25 percent of employers formally train their managers and leaders on workforce recognition and practices, she says, citing research from WorldatWork. “Unfortunately, it’s still more the exception than the rule, but I think it’s a trend that’s changing.”


Survey Says: Millennials Want to Lead but Need Training

As the 80 million Millennials (ages 18–33) start to play a larger role in the U.S. workplace, they aspire to lead in business in the next 5 years, according to The Hartford’s 2014 Millennial Leadership Survey. Millennials also said training is the best way employers can demonstrate an investment in them.


Case Studies Bring the Real World into Your Training

"In yesterday's Advisor, we gave you a brief case study on ethics. Today, we give a real world case to drive home the importance of training managers how to supervise telecommuters."

Managers who supervise telecommuters need to know whether their employees are putting in the required hours and/or getting their work done at home. However, managers also need to be aware of whether telecommuters are taking enough breaks from their sedentary work. A recent court case demonstrates some of the important implications that must be considered when training both managers and their telecommuting subordinates.


Do You Use Case Studies in Your Training?

"Case studies are a great training tool to bring your content straight into the real world. In today's Advisor, we demonstrate how a case study can help drive home your ethics and supervisory training."

Realistic case studies during training can help demonstrate the types of ethical dilemmas that supervisors face daily. The following case study may resonate with some of your supervisors. It involves a supervisor who is faced with an ethical dilemma concerning hiring.

Mary had interviewed numerous candidates for the job opening in her department. She’d finally settled on Brian. He had good credentials and was available to start working right away, and she urgently needed to fill the position. So Mary offered Brian the job, and he accepted.
