Leadership is where ‘soft skills for real results’ really makes a difference.
It might not be obvious.
Well qualified, high achieving people are usually not motivated simply by material reward alone. Because of their training and experience, they are also usually difficult and costly to replace. Measuring their day to day output is difficult because their value stretches over long term projects and outcomes and is usually based on quality not simply on quantity.
● Are less innovative.
● Make more mistakes.
● Demotivate others.
You need to know that they are motivated and focused right now. The high investment involved in long term projects means that any problems with low motivation are particularly damaging. Losing key people or having unmotivated people in the team is usually very costly to the group.
● Think about how to solve work problems when they are most relaxed and creative – Outside work.
