I am starting a new series of short videos on Fridays (and hopefully will keep posting).
We would all love to have work that keeps up engaged and motivated. There are several dimensions to what drives engagement and the “job role” itself contributes very heavily to motivation levels. Put another way, if you are underpaid to do a lot of challenging work, you might still be pretty engaged (all startups pretty much work in this state) but if you are a smart person paid a ton of money to do nothing – chances are you will want to quit (fast!).
Here is the first in the Friday Videos series with some tips how managers can create Challenging roles to keep Employees motivated.
