Nothing Determines Your Success More than

Increase your influence through the Leadership Tools

The signs of an unmotivated staff

You have a motivation problem if you have any employees who:

– Refuse to take ownership

– Put in only the bare minimum to get by

– Bring a cynical attitude to work that spreads among the team


– Require you to turn up the pressure in order to get them to move

If you have any employees who demonstrate one or more of these, then you have a motivation problem.

It’s a bit like having a six-cylinder car that’s only running on three cylinders. It’s moving along, but it’s capable of so much more.

Not only are you losing out on performance, but a lack of motivation among some team members subtly erodes the morale of those who really do want to work.

In short, a motivation problem actually becomes everyone’s problem.

But how do you turn around a lack of motivation? Which approach do you take and is it even possible given how busy you are?

The good news is wherever you are as a leader, you can learn the skills and gain the tools to increase your influence and impact. I help you do that with something called the Leadership Tools.

Your Success Hinges on
This One Thing…

When your team is not motivated, and when they’re not bringing their best to work on a consistent basis, you can’t be successful.

Because as a leader you are paid to produce a result, but it’s really your people who end up doing the bulk of the work. This is why you need to be excellent at motivating them.

Because at the end of the day, you’re held accountable for the results they produce.

No one said leadership was fair.

And unless you do something to increase the motivation of your team, nothing is going to change and you won’t be able to produce the result that you’re paid for. Same drama, same excuses, same results.

Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership…

Today’s Busy Managers Need a Different Approach

No matter where in the world I travel, managers are facing the same challenge; trying to motivate their staff while juggling their own mile-long to-do list. This is why so many managers feel tired and overwhelmed, wondering how long they can keep it up. Some even begin to question whether or not they have what it takes to be a leader.

So if you’re finding it hard to lead a passionate and energized staff, it’s not your fault. Today’s work world is the busiest it’s ever been which is why you have to take a different approach.

It’s all about micro investments

hen people get overwhelmed they resort to task work. Checking items off a to-do list may help you feel better in the moment but when you get too focused on tasks you neglect the very thing that will lead to your success, and that’s bringing out the best in your people.

So how do you get everything done AND be a great leader to your people?

Micro Investments.

The key to motivating your staff in today’s work world is to leverage the little time you have and focus it on the few things that yield the biggest results. Decades of research have shown us what drives motivation, we simply have to invest the small amount of time we do have on those motivation drivers.

While leadership isn’t easy, it doesn’t have to be complicated.
