|What motivates someone to work more efficiently?
Education - if you tell people why they are doing a certain exercise then they are more likely not to lose intrest because they know why there doing something. If you just tell them you need to do it without explanation then they would lose intrest.
Being able to identify effort with success... measuring output against application of effort is a great motivator.
Whether is learning a new language, being able to run faster or cook better... if one can identify improvement as a direct result of applied action plus the acceptance that there are no true short cuts to enabling goal achievement, the encouragement of efficiency will transpire.
The client will need to be motivated, inspired then encouraged along the way to reach the special point of experiencing positive output against applied effort; thereafter once learned and with practice; efficient output will be embraced.
I have found that when we finally come to the point of realizing exactly how much time we waste in our lives, we are naturally motivated to work more efficiently by identifying and dealing with distractions and removing as many "non-value-added" activities from our busy days as we can.
A person's dreams provides the motivation to work efficiently toward their goals. Each step is a milestone to the career and live of their dreams. A good coach helps the individual acknowledge successes along the way to sustain momentum forward.
Seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Non judgmental support. Having someone there for them when they need it.
Excessive cost or time spent
Progress of course, and a goal that is attainable.
Well, for me it's basic laziness. (laughter) I figured out at a very early age that the more efficient I am, the less work I have to do. I think my clients are naturally motivated to work efficiently. They have goals, and they want to get there as quickly as possible. I teach them efficient strategies to help them do what needs to be done with the least effort. Who would want it any other way?
A strong desire to change in the mind and soul.
Desire of getting & Fear of Loosing usually.
A deep understanding of their 'why'. And a deep desire to change. The 'pain' they are in so cutting, so deep that the only way to find relief is through change.
A desire to get different results which motivates them to look at difficult issues, to have an honest discussions with themselves and to do different things as a result.
People are motivated by different things, so this is a difficult question to answer. At the heart of everything, however, one could argue philosophically that what motivates us all is freedom. We want to be free to live the way we envision, love the way we desire, to have the things that are important to us, and to create the experiences that are important to us. That desire for freedom is what ultimately motivates us best.
Fear is also a motivator: the fear that we will lose everything. But that kind of motivation is not a very positive kind of energy, and it typically cannot last very long or create very ideal results.
The right level of support from one or more person's around them, along with a buy-in to the vision for the work.
That depends on the someone, I think. :-) Some people are motivated by desperation, others by dedication, others by the joy of learning... And of course, there is room for learning to work more efficiently - I do help with that too, when needed.
