Organizations can #motivate and #engage employees by appointing and supporting #sustainable #leadership. Leadership that does not focus on self-rewarding but on serving the company they represent through long term planning and positive workplace energy. It is important that leaders show integrity for employees to be proud of their workplace. Companies must also go beyond just work relationship by fostering supportive and healthy lifestyle relationships with employees or members; people should be considered the engine of success.
Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric (GE) said: "No company, large or small, can succeed over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it."
When looking at the back burn position Dubrin A.J. has about crisis management, it indicates that he does not consider crisis management as an important factor in motivating employees. My experience as an International Trade Advisor having to deal with cross-cultural businesses has proved that effective communication and crisis management are priorities to enhance one’s involvement within an organization. Attitude-behavior consistency is an interesting arm of motivation theory; that declares if people are to behave in a certain way, they will only follow leader’s attitude based on personal experience. The difficulty is the aptitude for people to express clear messages that are not outside visible attitudes.
Overall, #experience and #competence, not title, have proven to make me a stronger and motivated contributor to my organization.
