Famous Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz said:
It's not my job to motivate players. They bring extraordinary motivation to our program. It's my job not to de-motivate them."
Ask your employees What do I do that de-motivates you?
Stop doing what they tell you.
If your people are coming to work de-motivated that is their issue. You are accountable for you. Be their role model not their motivator.
"Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way." said Ted Turner. Good advice.
Be the difference you want to see in the world.
