Enthusiasm, motivation and resilience are the key to a happy, healthy workforce.
Yet the reality for many organisations is that staff remain undervalued, under trained, poorly motivated and poorly managed – leading them to perform well below their capability. The corporate pace facing organisations today has never been greater. Organisations must absorb and manage these cultural and technological changes at a much faster rate than in the past. In order to implement a positive business strategy to face this challenge, we must ensure that we have an optimistic, well motivated workforce, capable of delivering a successful strategy which energises and inspires us all, staff can then improve their performance and stamina during periods of high demands; they can see opportunities in change.
If challenges are welcomed as new opportunities; your staff will grow and develop, rather than seeing changes as a threat. Individuals that can influence events and have a strong sense of self-achievement and effectiveness are invaluable, as opposed to the employees that feel they are a victim of circumstance.
Influential employees and managers live in the ‘cause’ side of the equation rather than in the ‘effect. They invite and attract action and results.
These people are the leaders of tomorrow who cause positive things to happen all around them, rather than perceiving that they are always “affected” by external events they cannot control and which drag them down. Managers who have this strong sense of commitment and are fully involved, are unlikely to be de-motivated by the day to day stressors which arise unexpectedly. These are the qualities required in the workplace of today, which will enhance corporate performance and boost the morale of others. These are the people who inspire and lead others to achieve. These are the Leaders of the future.
