Employee motivation is considerably enhanced when you meet three basic employee needs – expectations, resources and feedback. You can go a long way to improving employee motivation if you clarify your work expectations, provide employees with the resources they need to do the job and give timely, accurate feedback on work performance.
The pervading culture in your organization has developed over time and will persist in your work group unless you work actively to change it. What you focus on, pay attention to, and spend time on, communicates your values and influences work group culture. As a manager, you need to be consistent, congruent, persistent and resilient to change workplace culture.
