In my career of over 25 years, I have heard dozens of managers cry about how their employees don’t perform well and don’t feel driven. In most cases, the lack of productivity comes from low morale. And there are many things that contribute to this. Off the top of my head, I can think of three factors:
Lack of Contribution
It’s easy to tell others what to do, but this can be too much in some cases. When your employees have no say whatsoever in every company decision, they feel like they have no input at all. This would leave them no opportunity to voice out what they think should change. Over time, this will take its toll on your employees and they will have a terribly low morale.
Another factor to avoid is micromanagement. Won’t you feel annoyed if your boss keeps nagging you about the tiniest details? Of course you would! Nobody likes being micromanaged, because it ruins your own pace. Once the task is finished, the result is the effort of the boss who micromanaged the whole thing instead of the employee hired to do that particular job. This is definitely a bummer for employee morale because they don’t feel they accomplished something.
Some people don’t realize how important appreciation is. Your employees work hard and they don’t get some sort of appreciation? Come on, that will surely annoy them.
Sometimes, employees feel demotivated because they don’t get rewarded for all the good things they do. If this happens 8 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week, of course your staff wouldn’t like it and will see no sense in excelling at what they do.
But you know, low employee morale isn’t the end of the world. It’s possible to turn this around with some help – my help. It’s easy to see when your employees feel down, and that’s the right time for me to do my thing. I’ll hype up your staff and make them feel awesome.
