THIS IS FOR LOVE! HOW DO I GET EMPLOYEES TO BE LOYAL AND MOTIVATE THEM TO SUCCEED?
HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT MY EMPLOYEES LOVE AND RESPECT YOU, BUT DON’T FALL ON YOUR NECK?

Natalia Adamova, a business coach at Moscow Business School, an expert practitioner in the field of talent development, identification of potential employees, and organizational change management, helped us prepare this article.
CREATING SOURCES OF INSPIRATION
Creating sources of inspiration
To begin with, let’s give some not very optimistic statistics from the research company Gallup. According to surveys conducted among full-time employees of companies, 70% of people hate their work or constantly force themselves to put up with it.
The most surprising thing is that the root of all the evils is not low wages and recycling, but management. Simply put, the staff is working hard because of a bad relationship with the boss.
10 principles of a true leader:
1. get to know yourself First before you get to know and teach others.
2. Invest in yourself, otherwise there will be nothing to invest in others.
3. Be a person before you are a leader.
4. Focus less on structure and systems than on people and their development.
5. a Good Manager relies on control; a successful leader relies on trust.
6. First of all, ask “What?” and ” Why?”, not “How?” and ” When?”
7. it is Always better to be someone than to appear.
8. Treat people equally fairly, but remember the uniqueness of each.
9. Listen much more than talk.
10. Say thank you and do it publicly.
YOU CAN’T BUY LOYALTY
You can’t buy loyalty
Do you want employees to go to work as if it were a holiday? Then keep in mind three key factors that affect employee loyalty to the company:
1. the Ability to use your skills and abilities at work to their full potential.
2. Relations with the direct Manager.
3. Security, confidence in the financial stability of the company and that tomorrow you will not be out of work.
Oddly enough, in none of the studies, remuneration does not appear in the lists of “guarantors” that promise the employer the loyalty of an employee.
But this circumstance does not mean that the amount of wages does not matter!
WHEN THE EMPLOYEE IS READY
TO MOVE MOUNTAINS?
When is an employee ready to move mountains?
In the book the Orange Revolution: how one great team can transform an entire organization authors tell how companies Zappos.com Pepsi, American Express achieve excellent results.
The secret of their success is the exceptional involvement of all team members in their work.
How can this be achieved? Only invest in staff every day. People see it, feel it, understand it, and are ready to move mountains.
Basic 4 + Recognition Technology
Effective communication with employees
+ Recognition (key factor, “umbrella” covering all 4 bases)
In fact, it is very important to understand two things.
What do employees think about when they are motivated and demotivated?
Career / professional development working Conditions
When you provide employees with a decent level of pay and good working conditions, you eliminate demotivation, but you do not contribute to motivation.
That is, subordinates no longer complain about the small salary and quirks of the boss, but still do not “rush to the barricades”. For the latter to happen, the employee must see the meaning of their work and a clear goal, achieve it and get recognition.
This is the only motivation, since you have decided to increase the effectiveness and loyalty of the team.
“We don’t have a corporate culture,” some companies say. This is a completely unsubstantiated statement. In fact, there is always an organizational culture. The only question is whether it helps the company develop and is a resource in the fight for market leadership.
Elements of corporate culture:
3. Prescribed values
4. Corporate events
1. Leadership style
2. The manner of communication
3. Decision-making methods
4. Accepted ” rituals»
There is no right or wrong corporate culture. There are only those that do not contribute to the achievement of the company’s goals.
“IF THE STARS LIGHT UP…”
“If the stars light up…»
So, in order for your employees to love you, remember the main thing. Today, a successful leader is someone who can see a person’s unique abilities, understand how they coincide with the company’s values, help an employee see these points of contact and develop their abilities and skills.
