An effective leader must understand the basic needs of followers and have a thorough knowledge of motivational factors for others. Individuals are motivated when they are working towards personally MEANINGFUL GOALS that are achievable. One possible approach is to focus on intrinsic vs extrinsic motivation (internal vs external motivation) and use them interchangeably. Finally, EMPOWERING OTHERS is one of the key skills in leadership. Empowered people not only feel competent, they feel confident that they can perform adequately. They feel a sense of personal mastery and believe they can learn and grow to meet the challenges. Therefore, you help followers climb the Maslow pyramid towards self-actualization. When people are empowered they have a sense of self-efficacy – the feeling they have capability and competence to perform a task successfully. How do you empower people? You go that extra mile and send a very clear signal to others about how much you valued them. Today, your customers, as well as your team no longer tolerate being treated as another number or transaction. Try to view both your people and your customers as your ambassadors and reward them for delivering excellent service and for being customers respectively. When people know you genuinely value them they become ambassadors to your cause. With our strong craving for meaning and purpose, whenever we receive praise for our efforts we feel appreciated and valued. A person you meet one time should become lifetime follower or lifetime customer if you as a leader perform right. Even more, they should become your future ambassadors.
