    i work as a certified surgical technologist in surgery. we are a group nationwide that goes unnoticed as to what our job really is. the problem here is that we work in a RN inviroment where the nurses “rule” type of mentality. we attend school and graduate with an associates degress just like some nurses. when they are hired into surgery it is a on-the-job training. And usually mgnt wants us to train them. they just received a HUGE pay increase for doing an already overpaid job. to keep moral up amongst us CST’s, its difficult. especially since we dont get any backing from higher up because we go unnoticed. what can we do to bring this to the table without having fear for our jobs?

    My belief is that all behavior is emotionally driven with the purpose of making us feel good. Although we all feel different levels of ‘good’ from different sources, our basic desire to be wanted by others and appreciated for what we bring to the work environment would be the focus of my attention when I try to motivate others to bring more to the workplace. I would stress the value of my colleagues’ contribution to the attainment of our common goals. Being recognized for the value of their investment in the workplace can help to internalize their emotional connection to the success of work goals.

    Actualy Mike, all behavior is needs driven and only some people need to be appreciated. Others need to be in control or see results. Our needs, how we think and feel about things, and our values and beliefs all impact our behavior. The foundation research that supports this is from William Marston and formed the basis for DiSC Dimensions of Behavior. When you understand this important concept, you also realize that you can’t motivate people. Management can only create an environment where people are intrinsically motivated to do their best, be engaged (29% of people are actively disengaged at work!)and find real joy and satisfaction from their job. A culture with authoritarian leaders creates even more problems- squashing creativity, destroying morale and minimizing trust.

      Yes Kristine, I love your comment and your views, especially the last two phrases! The power that everyone is looking for, is not measured in how much money you have in the bank, the power comes from within. We would be more engaged if we would have the right environment to do so. We would have more joy and satisfaction if we would be a team with the same views, the same goals and values the same needs to learn more and to know more and to appreciate each other and help each other. Unfortunately this place is hard to find these days and even harder to create. And about the authoritarian leaders, YES, I am coming from a former communist block and I so much know what is means! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, that means I am not alone!

    It was interesting reading the comments on how to motivate people. Some of the comments appear to problems etc

    I would discuss this subject under 2 categories.

    Category 1 – You are a part of a team and the team has been given a task and the authorities expect the task to be completed within a specified time. How does my attitude towards this task will motivate others in team to complete the task. This can mainly be my personal attitude,how I look at the task. If I take the task as an important one and want a good result I will put every to achieve the results. This personal attitude can inspire others not so inclined to work hard. This creates a sort of motivation in the team

    Category 2. If I am a head of a unit in an organisation. The CEO or the MD has a project and my unit is given the task to work on it. The first thing that will come to my mind is the feeling my team will be capable of working on the project. I would not take the attitude right at the start it is difficult and try to explain the authorities why it cannot be done. If I as the head of he unit take that line it will be difficult later for me and my team to work You find very often this happening.

    Having taken this task I take my team into confidence and discuss in detail what is expected of us and discuss how we should plan our work. I get my team to get involved. They too will appreciate this and extent their fullest cooperation. I will also join them in the task. I will not stay and watch them carrying out the task.

    To motivate as member of a team or as leader of a group lies with you and not with anyone else. Your the person to set the example.

    Here my statements to many of my friends about management is – “You can have the qualification MBA and be a not good manager, other hand without an MBA you can be an excellent manager.
