You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward. But both those methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self motivation.
Poor management results in a huge cost to organisations. Although a disturbing truth, most of the time people do not leave organisations, they leave managers. Often they leave organisations due to lack of development opportunities.
To lead a team of self motivated people focussed on their own performance improvement and development, managers need to adopt a coaching-based management style where there is a relationship of openness and honesty and a desire to unlock people’s potential.
The purpose of ‘Coaching for High Performance’, is to provide team leaders, managers, supervisors and human resources professionals with the skills needed to develop their people to use their own intellect and develop their own potential to solve problems, think creatively and look for opportunities to improve their performance and the organisation's overall effectiveness.
