The title of this blog is plagiarized from a friend’s Google box message. This set me thinking. How many days from an aggregate of 220 working days in a year do leaders and managers go to sleep with the feeling “I can’t wait for tomorrow”. Out of those days that the feeling crops up, how many of those are for personal reasons and how many for the organizational reasons?
The success of leadership and management must be determined by the number of days when that feeling crops up for organizational reasons. And the benchmark should be a range of 50 – 85%. Anything less is not acceptable. Measured against this rate, there is guaranteed growth for the organization. Most often, when it comes to motivation, only the lower rung of the organization is referred to. Quite to the contrary, the leadership and the management must find reasons to motivate themselves and set an example for the rest of the organization. They should come to the organization not to bark down orders or sassy up to their bosses but to get “engaged for results”.
Each one of us, when we are focused on achieving something, have seldom little time for other interests that conflict with the purpose, don’t we? So, let’s figure, what motivates us to be eager to get to work and shake some serious Joy!
