Allowing and Encouraging Creativity

Using Business Coaching to Motivate Employees

Sometimes if you are a manager you do not need to make use of financial incentives to motivate your employees which can prove expensive over the long term, or even in the short term if you are being particularly generous! If you have already made use of business coaching techniques and have discovered the factors which both increase and conversely have the potential to decrease their motivation and performance in the workplace, then you will be in a strong position to effectively tailor your incentive schemes to help achieve the desired conclusion that is increased performance.

Enabling Creativity Can Benefit Both the Business and the Employee

One such non-financial motivator which can be used is the promise to allow a worker to be more creative and use their ingenuity to come up with solutions to problems and new forms of marketing for the business. Not only can this give an employee greater motivation and a "new lease of life" if they were feeling fairly uninspired by a monotonous routine, but it can also prove to be highly beneficial for the company if their new ideas are implemented and turn out to be a great success.

Managers Need to Monitor and Treat Each Worker as an Individual

Whilst creativity is more often than not something to be encouraged rather than stifled, managers need to ensure that employees are being creative in ways which will have a worthwhile and positive impact upon the success of the business, and are not just spending vast amounts of effort being creative which will take up a lot of time but not really achieve very much. Managers also need to remember that some people are not creative and would become demotivated by being tasked to design something when they would prefer to be working on the solution to a problem for example.
