One of those Days…

September 2nd, 2010

funny_monkey_picturesDo you know those days where you are at your wits end, everything seems to be going against you, and it just takes one act of reverse brilliance to bring a smile to your face and turn it all around? This is a true story. The names have been changed to protect the … let’s just leave it at that.

If you have ever changed a truck tire or been in a shop that does, you know what a Tire Cage is. For those that don’t, it is a safety cage for dismounting truck tires from their rims. Truck tires are inflated to lethal pressures, and if one explodes while dismounting, serious injury can occur. The idea with the cage is if the tire explodes inside the cage, the cage catches the shrapnel and injury is avoided.

Give me a Break!

August 18th, 2010

We all have those days at work when we stop and wonder what the heck we’re doing, if we’re doing it well, and why are we doing it anyway.

It is these times when you need to take a break!

Taking a break is one way to release the pressure and get back in it. Some companies even provide game rooms where you can play darts, ping pong or just sit out at the picnic table and do a crossword puzzle.

Does this encourage people to slack off?

I don’t think so. It lets the employees know that the company understands that we are not robots and that we do better quality work when we have breaks. It also encourages team building and can be sold to new employees as a benefit to work here.  If your company doesn’t provide such a thing, maybe you can plan to spend some time taking a walk — even a half hour — or just take the time to crack a few jokes with your coworkers, this is a favorite of ours at TCS; anyth ...[more]

Basic Principles to Motivate Employees

July 29th, 2010

1. Motivating yourself will Motivate employees
Enthusiasm is contagious. If you enjoy your job, it helps others enjoy theirs too. If you do a good job of taking care of yourself and your own job, you will have much clearer perspective on how others are doing. You are setting an example for employees to follow.

2. Work to align goals of the organization with goals of employees
Frequent reviews and strategic goal setting sessions will help to ensure that company goals and personal goals are in alignment. Managers need to make the goals of the company very clear so an employee can be sure the goals they set will contribute to the success of the company. Employees will buy into the goals of the company when they are allowed to have input.  Goals should meet the SMART rule: Specific, Measureable, Action, Realistic and Time oriented.

3. Understand what motivates each employee
Start by evaluating what moti ...[more]
