The Right Attitude

Attitude is the way you define and interpret your experiences. Your attitude
is the sum total of your beliefs, assumptions, expectations, and values. It
determines the meaning or significance you attach to events and your
response to them. Picture your attitudes as a glass shield that covers your
head and body; nothing gets to your eyes, ears, nose, or brain without
passing through your attitude shield.

The right attitude has the following characteristics:
 reality, risk-taking and responsibility
 Imagination, innovation and integrity
 Goals-oriented, graciousness, and greatness
 Habits, health, and humor
 Time, thinking and trusting.

Does Training Matter?

Times of Great Difficulty Are Times of Great Opportunity.
These times may not seem ideal at first, but they usually provide keen insight into ideas of great value. When you
are surrounded by problems, you are simultaneously given an opportunity to provide valuable solutions. When times
are good and everything is comfortably in order, it’s easy to become complacent and forget how skillful and
resourceful you are capable of being. Troubled times are necessary evils that push you forward, because they
eventually end, and the lessons and strengths you gain from them last a lifetime.

Use the Right Tools and Skills for the Job
Regardless of your operation – staff motivation is influenced by the following factors: having the right person in the
job who is capable of doing it; equipping them to do the job by giving them the right tools and support and finally
setting realistic targets that they believe can be achieved. This shows the staff that we are responding to the
challenges of the marketplace and supporting them in every way we can.

Training is Always Good, It Keeps People Current and Focused On The Job.
Regular, effective and relevant training is massively important and a great motivator. If you want them to perform
properly and consistently then you have to give them the tools to do so. Training is always good, it keeps people up
to date and focused on the job at hand, it keeps their skills at the forefront and it will show them that management are
obviously concerned with how well they do their job, etc. If they are given good quality training that covers the topics
and issues they are faced with then they will respond and to a certain extent motivate themselves to stick with what
they learn.

Provide Challenge and Variety in the Workplace
It is important for employees to be challenged or learning new things in their job. Too often managers don’t allow
their employees to expand beyond their areas of expertise. Managers are fearful that they will need to expend too
much energy on training or reviewing work, that there will be too many mistakes, or that the employees don’t want to
have to learn more.

Change Your Mindset About The Cost of Training.
If you think of training as a business expense, that's what it becomes. However, if you think of training as an
investment, that's what it becomes. What would you rather do, pay bills or invest in your team? By thinking of training
as an investment, you will also expect a return. This focus guides you in everything from selecting the right training to
evaluating its results.

Engage in Ongoing Employee Skill Development
Managerial training responsibilities extend far beyond simply going over work procedures and sending employees to
classes when they need to master a new skill. Effective workforce training is an ongoing process that requires
supervisors to engage in ongoing skill development with their employees. Managers must engage in informal training
needs assessment on an ongoing basis, paying attention to employees' strengths and weaknesses and identifying
gaps that can be overcome through training opportunities.
