Today, the number one motivating factor in the workplace is praise and recognition. To keep employees engaged, leaders must create environments that allow their teams to fulfill their true potential. When asked where we see ourselves in five, 10 or 20 years, most of us visualize a future where we advance in our careers, earn more money and buy more things. Rather than imagining what we will have someday or what titles we will be given, we should shift our focus to who we will be as individuals at different stages in our lives. Money, fame and glory aren’t the goals we should be working toward. Our careers are stepping stones that make up the path we travel along to achieve success. Our guest this week is Bob Urichuck, an internationally recognized expert in Velocity Selling. Bob is sought out around the world for his inspiring speeches and insight on the changing world of sales. A true innovator and selling master, Bob has been ranked in the World’s Top 30 Sales Gurus since 2008 and is a go-to expert for many national radio and television programs. We’re excited to have Bob featured as one of the subject matter experts in C-Suite Academy, an interactive online learning environment for C-Suite leaders and their teams. Leaders who are able to inspire and motivate their teams create a process that makes it easy for people to motivate themselves. The foundation of team motivation is attitude. When people come to work every day with a positive attitude, they will become highly motivated. Recognition is a key component to motivating employees, but leaders who are too self critical will have trouble letting go of their criticism of others. Understanding that people are the most important part of an organization will have amazing results on performance and the success of your company.
