  1. use diverse research
    For what its worth here’s my view on this. Motivation and its group partner morale are very complex issues to ever understand, despite what analysis you carry out. I think it helps to study all the various generic influencing factors and then decide how far the culture should bend towards this whimsical/transient/fickle issue. A brave way to address morale is to run motivation workshops with the population in question that educate them in the topic, re-iterate business goals, discuss issues and generate discussion about tackling morale issues. This avoids the ‘I’ve got the answer’ problem that happens if you suddenly announce a programme of changes to address morale issues. Often, open 2 way dialogue between managers and staff goes along way to alleviating such problems. Don’t lose sight of the two big imperatives;We have to go to work to live and businesses have to make money/operate within budgets there is inevitable conflict here. No magical fixes exist.


  2. Questionnaires

    I have a number of training needs analysis templates including questionnaires on Work Fufilment and a pre-set format for a brainstorming activity on Communications in the Workplace.

    Please give me a call or e-mail me if you would like these.
