Very comprehensive "all rounder", "jack of all . . ." approach.
Another interesting notion to exploit is the extremely powerful WIIFM? mindset.
WIIFM? - WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
This can bring done mountains, and the underlying triggers are easy to understand:
> Employee placed in a situation where responsibility is expected, in reward for a salary.
> After an undetermined lapse of time, the salary in itself will no longer suffice to act as a pure motivational driving force (repetition, saturation, inhouse dissonance, environmental conastraints. . .whatever will seep in and offset the initial motivation - wages)
> Person will be faced with WIIFM? or WLIIFM? - WHAT'S LEFT IN IT FOR ME?
This dissonance will force the employee to seek another "branch to climb".
> Authority, Competition, Daily Results Oriented Money Reward, Sheer Experience, Work Place Familiarity, Superior Accreditation, FlexiTime, Social Recognition. . .Anything goes!
> Once the employee has passed this "Point of Further Reward". . .You will have Human Machines in your work force!
Think about it. . .Did we not cross that bridge sometime or another. . .Introvert, observe. . .You'll conclude exactly how Powerful WIIFM? actually is.
So, to conclude, if you want to spark hidden, subconcious forces in your workers:
Simply ask them the question: So guys! Now you know what must be done. So what's in it for you?
Just be sure to have positive movment answers, because most are to busy grinding the stone to realise and actually put their finger on "Why am I so fed up with work for?"
"I agree, but good talent also needs the boost that they get from motivation or the environment created for motivation."
We cannot find talent on a resume. When we hire for talent, we hire employees who are motivated by the job and the environment.
