According to James F. Lincoln, the most potent ‒ when properly offered ‒ incentives are: 

  1. Money in proportion to production: if each person is properly rated and paid, there will not only be a fair reward to each worker but friendly and exciting competition

  2. Status as a reward for achievement: many incentives are far more effective than money; status is often a much greater incentive.

  3. Publicity of the worker's contributions and skill

Involvement in an organization is no longer a one-way street. Employee empowerment and cross-level work groups can contribute a lot to corporate decision-making and planning. Practice participatory management seek employee's opinions and actions whenever possible and keep an open mind to the suggestions and criticism they offer. Give due recognition to achievers - "there is nothing so unequal as the equal treatment of unequals."

Share Motivation

The good motivator motivates people to motivate themselves. Rather than relying on your powers to provide a spur, use the powers within people.

To find out if those who work with you, both as individuals and as a group, share your motivation, ask yourself:

  • Do they identify themselves with the organization and their own group?

  • Do they identify themselves with its products and/or services?

  • Do they accept individual and group responsibility for the quality and performance of their work?
