Want to motivate your employees and teammates to do a better job? Does your team seem unhappy, unmotivated, and distrustful of your organization?
In Carrots and Sticks Don’t Work, Paul Marciano argues that engagement stems from respect. Employees don’t want to be treated like cogs in a chain. Instead, they want to feel empowered, have autonomy, receive supportive feedback, and be treated considerately. Breaking any of these makes teammates feel disrespected, which causes motivation to plummet.
In this Carrots and Sticks Don’t Work summary, you’ll learn:
- the major non-monetary components of what employees want
- how to diagnose whether you’re a great or terrible manager
- simple actions you can take today to engage your team
