As an advocate of Emotional Leadership, it pains me to see influential leaders NOT talking about motivation and how to do it in a healthy way.
The only talk is by “junk food”. Incentives, money, bribes, cars, trips……crap. OR it’s shame “Well, Karen signed up 4 people, so why can’t you?” And its OK to say that because “That’s what those personalities respond to.”
Are they freaking kidding me?
These big-time Influencers need to get their HEARTS in the game and TAKE CARE OF THEIR PEOPLE!
Now don’t get me wrong. I love a lot of these people and my business wouldn’t be the same without them. They are hugely influential to me and I am freaking amazed at what they teach and I’m able to learn from them.
But why leave their people out? The most important part, their motivations! Why are their people doing what they are doing?
Most importantly, HOW TO HELP THEM WHEN THEY ARE STRUGGLING…
No, the answer isn’t shame or weekend trips.
This bothers me, on a personal level.
If you have a team member that was gung-ho about the opportunity and then a month later has a hard time responding to your messages. Don’t you dare turn around and say “Well Cayci, they just aren’t motivated anymore. Time to move on.”
THIS is what bothers me on a personal level. The response of ABANDONMENT that is TAUGHT and APPROVED because “it’s not personal, it’s business.”
Well everyone. Business IS personal. Always should be. Anything to do with a person IS personal.
And when we start teaching this and speaking on this in love and will to do better, the freaking world will change.
