The HOW Of Getting Results: A Motivational Mindset

HOW you get results is as important as getting results.

By Brent Filson - 07/01/09

Just getting results is not the be all and end all of leadership.  What also matters is HOW you get results.  

As a leader, the HOW is often manifested by developing and maintaining a motivational mindset. You should not only lead people to accomplish tasks but have them be motivated to do so. 

Clearly, motivated people are more innovative, adaptable, and hard working than those who aren’t.

But there is a right motivational mindset and a wrong motivational mindset.

The wrong motivational mindset insists that you can motivate others.  However, I’m sure you know from experience that you really can’t motivate anybody to do anything.  The motivator and the “motivatee” are always the same person.

The right motivational mindset asserts that motivation isn’t what you do to others.  It’s what they do to themselves.

Don’t think of how you yourself will get people motivated.  Instead, think of how your words and actions will create an environment in which they make the choice to motivate themselves.
