Motivation: management system in IT

Employees were motivated, motivated, but not motivated - says the popular tongue twister (a joke from the author).

In fact, there are as many problems in motivating staff as in pronouncing this tongue twister or its inimitable original. Poor and not so HR managers attend dozens, if not hundreds of events a year to motivate employees in the hope of catching on to something new. And the employees all go somewhere, maybe even fly away. What to do? It's not easy to say. It is unlikely that you and I will be able to figure out the brain of employees so changeable in current times, but let's try to figure it out at least something.

So what are we going to dig today: what kind of motivation happens, and what new kind have we introduced in what proportions will it work how much vitamin d do you need to be successful

1. What kind of motivation happens, and what new kind have we introduced? In all textbooks and materials on personnel management, you will find two types of motivation: internal and external. Nothing new here. We agree. These two species were, are and will rule mankind.

In short, extrinsic motivation is when something or someone induces you to perform certain actions by various stimuli or circumstances. And if it is very simple, then you can be very competently or illiterately managed. And when you submit to this control, this is the result of external motivation. Who can do this to you? Weather, friends, family, employer, media, trends, any other means of marketing, and so on.

For example, a heavy downpour motivates people to hide under a bus stop or even jump on its bench. The force of extrinsic motivation of rain controls people. Magic? We don't think.

Intrinsic motivation, on the contrary, is the motivation of a person, which in no way depends on the external environment. No matter how someone or something tries / tries to influence you, you will be driven by your internal motivation.

A small problem. Suppose that in the photo on the left is Peter, and in the photo on the right is Victor. Peter went to the gym because he has a bad back. Victor went to the gym because his brother Peter is showing great results. Also, parents endlessly praise Peter and want Victor to take an example from him. Attention, the question is, who has what kind of motivation?

The answer is obvious and simple (you guessed it, of course). Peter is driven by intrinsic motivation. He goes to study because in this way he solves his own problems. And Victor joins classes with Peter, because he is motivated by the results of his brother and the opinion of his parents.

Everything seems clear here. But you ask, what then is this new species that we have introduced? Let's not break up, everything will be fine. But before that, a small digression.

IMPORTANT! We are not scientists, not doctors. We put forward a theory that makes sense, we think. This means that it must definitely be analyzed and refined. Moreover, it can also be subject to refutation. But we will share it anyway.

The third type of motivation is physiological (as we called it). What do we mean by this? The human brain, in which external and internal motivation is born, cannot exist in isolation from the body. So we suggested that you can't talk about these two types of motivation without paying attention to your body. His condition, as well as the lack, norm or excess of various microelements, vitamins, and so on, have the same strong influence on your motivation.

2. In what proportions will motivation work? Give me the recipe, you say. And we won't. It is very difficult to track certain proportions. Convert into numbers what drives you. But one thing is for sure. It is impossible to achieve results by driving on only one or two motivations. If you yourself know what you want and why, but the external environment does not help you, the result will be lower or longer achieved. Or even lead to the fact that you stop going to this goal. You will change your target. If you do not have internal motivation, then there is little point in motivating you from the outside, because it is also not an option to exist for so long. Well, if you have everything, but your body is not ready for this load, then the minimum - you will not come to what you want, the maximum - there is a chance to earn health problems. In general, it is impossible to say that 33% extrinsic motivation mixed with 29.5% intrinsic and warmed up along with 37.5% physiological will give you the same Felix Felicis (the potion of success from the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince).

3. How much vitamin D do you need to drink to be successful? Fortunately or unfortunately, we do not have the medical background to answer this question. We are just an IT company. But we have found for you a few facts that will help you think a little bit and perhaps agree with us in highlighting this very third type of motivation. B vitamins help convert the food you eat into energy vitamin C strengthens the immune system, stimulates the production of serotonin, which regulates mood, sleep cycles, fights de
