Think better. Get better. Achieve better results.
As a leader, you want to be the best for yourself and for your employees. And as an employee, hopefully, you want to be the best for you and your company too. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Something is missing in the workplace passion and productivity equation.
It happens to us all. Sometimes, we get stuck in a rut. Ruts are productivity vacuums. Feeling uninspired, demotivated and tired, we see ourselves and our teams succumbing to waning work ethics. We ask ourselves, What is causing this? What can be done when the workplace woes strike? How can we get ourselves, and our teams, back on track toward success?
Warriors pause and reflect. Warriors make changes. Warriors overcome.
If you are currently caught in a slump, don’t worry. You will get out by hard work and by taking a genuine look at the present condition of your workplace. Have you heard the expression, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?”
Most of the time, the rut isn’t because of employee talent level, salary dissatisfaction or laziness. Instead, the problem lies in extrinsic and intrinsic motivation levels – both of which stem largely from organizational culture and your workplace environment. Creating a workplace where people feel inspired, part of a community and valuable is crucial to the productivity and long-term success of your organization.
