If the right leadership is in place, employee motivation only increases. A sound leadership team must create structures that allow employees to develop and work together smoothly. This starts with ambitious but realistic goals, includes functioning processes and goes far beyond a motivating company culture. Each executive can make a big difference at an individual level. They should help their employees to find and optimally exploit their own sources of motivation and use these to shape framework conditions on an ongoing basis. This allows you to increase your team’s motivation – in the long term and with added value.
