What is the ultimate workplace incentive? It is a question leaders and executives have been asking themselves since the beginning of time, and the answer may surprise you. Is it more money? More flexibility? More vacation? No, no, and no. It turns out that heartfelt appreciation is the ultimate workplace incentive, and it also makes employees feel more valued and connected to their work.
In the inspiring video Encouraging the Heart, best-selling authors and management experts Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner show how to master the art of employee recognition and appreciation. It is hard to put a price on this valuable leadership skill; masters of it are worth their weight in gold. The video depicts ways to motivate and engage employees, while showing the importance of recognizing achievements and linking recognition to organizational results.
In this program viewers visit a non-profit agency, a manufacturer and a software company where they are shown what can happen when workers are properly motivated to achieve goals.
Managers who set the right goals, and who put in place the right rewards for achieving those goals, set everyone up for success. When people feel appreciated, positive results are achieved. Encouraging the Heart is a must for any organization that wants empowered, successful employees.
