About the book

Staff are ever more demanding of their employers. They want to be consulted, appreciated and, more importantly, they want to enjoy their work. When staff are content they perform well; when they are motivated they perform even better. Managers are under increasing pressure to get results, and their competence is judged on the combined performance of their whole team.

How to Motivate People shows you how to inspire individuals or teams to develop. It clarifies the underlying principles for motivating staff to get results and maximise performance and sets out clear guidelines on how to reduce negativity; boost positive feelings; foster enthusiasm and involvement and focus effort on key issues.
