Overview

Managers today often lead a diverse set of workers, all with unique combinations of aspirations, skills, talents, experience, and goals. What provides inspiration for one employee may fall flat with another. There is no one magic formula that will work for everyone. The promise of rewards, fear of consequences, or well-defined objectives may gain compliance for the short term, but not commitment for the long term.

Yet if managers know their people well they can tap into their team's energy, skills, and enthusiasm by creating an environment that fits those team members. Inspiring Others: What Really Motivates People explores how managers can align employees' talents, skills, and energy with the goals of the organization. The consequence is tangible results.

Inspiring Others shows you how to: Better understand people and what most inspires them, Match people to work opportunities that best fit their interests and aspirations, Create a work environment that respects employees' needs and values, Help people sustain their motivation over time and through the rough spots.

Being a manager involves more than running systems and processes-it involves interacting with real people in real situations. Like a coach, managers are there to support, guide, and inspire the people they lead-to build on the motivation that exists within each person. You and your organization succeed when you know your people; build around their aspirations, strengths, and needs; expect excellence; and treat people like owners. Inspiring Others will help you as a manager get the basics right so greater performance will follow.
