What motivates employees

Good employees get engaged if they feel they have a contribution, that they are empowered.
Besides, they have to feel that the company has vision and direction and listens to them.

Employees have first to respect the company, not so much for its brand but for its culture. For that, the company has to act in the spirit of its values.

Recognition also matters but in promotions rather than in utterances like "well done, mate".

But it is the task of leaders to motivate employees to succeed as an organization not only as individuals.

Good thoughts Adrian, but leaders cannot motivate employees directly. That said, they can lead employees to become highly motivated, fully engaged Superstars who are emotionally driven to throw everything they have at their work. The essence of doing so is provided in this short video.
