Fair treatment is rule one when it comes creating enthusiasm in your team
Your team’s enthusiasm has a direct impact on their productivity and on the success of your business.
In extensive research conducted by the Sirota Group, they found that the enthusiasm of any team as a measure of productivity and motivation is central to a Three-Factor Theory (the 3 sources of enthusiasm).
The Sirota Group says that “rather than believing you somehow have to motivate people to do work, this theory assumes that everyone starts out motivated – but then other things happen, or don't happen, that reduce this natural motivation.”
If you are struggling with the enthusiasm of your team, then use the 3 sources of enthusiasm to help.
Remember – as a leader you determine your team’s level of enthusiasm.
To rebuild your team’s enthusiasm, you, the business leader, must create a working environment that builds high levels of fairness (equity), achievement and camaraderie.
Fairness, or what the Sirota Group calls ‘equity’, is a pre-requisite for enthusiasm. A sense of fair treatment comes from a blend of job security, fair pay and respect.
Here is the simple truth – equity, or fair treatment – is the single greatest motivating factor.
