BASICS OF MOTIVATION

  • If you are not motivated, no one else can do it.
  • If your goals align with those of the organization or school, you will probably feel more motivated to work toward those goals.
      Examples:
      1. Results of work should contribute to the goals of the organization or school.
      2. Aligning the organization or work goals with your own helps you feel good about what you are doing.
      3. Aligning goals helps you see your value to the organization or school.
  • It is helpful to understand what motivates others.
  • Ask them what motivates them.
  • Listen to them as they talk about what they do in their roles as worker, community member, and family member.
  • Observe their behaviors.
  • Support others and the motivation that supports their efforts.
  • Do not count on cultivating strong interpersonal relationships.
  • Use reliable, comprehensive systems to help motivation.
      Examples:
      1. Compensation systems
      2. Performance systems
      3. Organizational policies and procedures.


  • Write down motivational factors that sustain you and what you can do to sustain them.
