FEATURESTORY

culture. Highly effective organizations
have a culture where people work hard
and achieve - and this behavior is not
the result of any program.
e good news is that trying to
motivate employees is a bad idea.
Whenever anyone says they want to learn
how to motivate their employees, I think
of a wind-up toy. e manager then
becomes responsible for "winding up" the
employee who eventually runs out of
steam. Efforts to motivate employees may
never lead to sustainable increases in
discretionary effort. Reliable and
meaningful increases in human capital will
only be realized by fostering a culture of
employee engagement. I believe that no
program - especially those designed to
motivate employees - will ever result in
such a culture.
e key driver to employee engagement
is respect and the extent to which
employees' experience respect in the
following five domains:
* Respect their organization: Its mission,
vision, values, goals, policies, and
actions. Employees are proud to say, "I
work for this company."
* Respect the organization's leaders,
especially their team leader, believing
that he/she is competent, ethical, makes
good decisions and treats people fairly.

Promoting Respect in the Workplace
Here are some of Dr. Paul Marciano's 101 ways to promote respect
in the workplace. For the full list, see the September 2017 issue of
Bonus Focus at www.L-TEN.org/BonusFocus:
1. Ask someone for his/her opinion or idea.
2. Acknowledge and compliment others for their
accomplishments and contributions.
3. Remain humble when it comes to your own accomplishments.
4. Always be on time for meetings.
5. Let other meeting participants know in advance if you will be
late, have to leave early, or must take an urgent call.
6. Start and end meetings you lead on time.
7. Keep meetings in line with their stated agenda - regardless of
whether you are leading the meeting.
8. Be supportive of others' ideas during meetings.
9. Give others your undivided attention when in conversation.
Stop texting and emailing!
10. Take the initiative to introduce yourself to a new employee
and then introduce him/her to others in your department.
11. Admit and take responsibility for your mistakes.
12. Ask a colleague what they are working on and how it's going -
especially someone in another department. (This must be
done with authentic interest and without appearing "nosy.")
13. Ask someone to give you feedback on your work.
14. Acknowledge when others' ideas are better than your own.
15. Take the initiative to resolve a long standing issue with a
colleague or let it go. ■
