Motivating By Giving Up Control
“Giving” in order to “receive” is a strategy to apply in creating a motivational climate. Allowing others to exercise some control creates an environment that builds self-worth.
Three ideas to increase your success with motivating by giving up control include:
- Give choices whenever possible. For example:
- on activities to accomplish a goal
- on the order of actions
- on the deadline
- on the time line
- on the team members
- Ask open questions as opposed to directive questions… allowing others to suggest the solutions.
- Demonstrate that you are open-minded…. receptive to new ideas and approaches.
