Stop Using Bandaids and Fix Staff Engagement and Motivation Issues for Good – E39
How you’re motivating people is probably wrong.
At different stages of an agency’s growth, there’s some different challenges with team enrolment, motivation and generally engagement.
Earlier on in the growth stage, one of the things that we hear is: “I’ve hired these people and they’re just not doing the level of work that I am expecting them to do.”
Further on, we hear: “My team just generally feels worn out and they’re complaining that they aren’t getting paid enough.”
One of the things that I have seen from different consulting agencies is that they are trying to motivate people with the wrong things.
Listen in to find out:
- Three things that drive people that have nothing to do with money
- How you can help your team up their skills and get to mastery
- How you can give you team autonomy while holding to your company values
- How you can provide a sense of significance in the work your team does

They got excited and started to feel like they were really part of something bigger and more meaningful.
