You know that there is a relationship between how much people love their job and how well they perform. That’s not a mystery. But there is a twist that you need to know about in order to manage yourself and others:

1. Some people need to feel good about their job before they can get busy and produce great results.

2. Others have to first achieve great results in order to feel good about their jobs.

Which are you?

What about the people on your team?

How does this impact on how you would manage their motivation for maximum performance?

Here are some ideas, and a simple exercise, on why you want to do things.

My best wishes, Paul
