Motivating the Spectator Sheep, or “Things are not always how they appear”
Spectator Sheep express themselves with Naaaaaa’s and Baaaaaa’s when asked about things in the workplace. They are most certainly not involved and engaged and they are often not moving in the same direction as most of the others.
So, as manager, ask yourself how you might involve them in some new direction and work to remove that protective sheepskin covering.
You might be surprised with the motivation and energy of someone newly engaged in workplace improvement initiatives!
For the FUN of It!
