The Intellisense Form – complex problems can be solved with simple questions

Solutions to problems often start with simple questions that provoke thought about the primary causes. This is not intended to suggest that problems are always simple. However, like a surgeon using a scalpel to make that first incision on a patient, simple questions open the door for more probing and invasive efforts to evaluate and treat a condition.

If you are a business or nonprofit leader and you have prevailing issues that cannot be determined as symptoms or root causes, or if you have growth expectations that require viable opportunity ideas, then consider using the Gidus Intellisense Form. It is simple and easy to use, your information is confidential and not shared with any external parties. And, the benefit is you begin a process for moving forward!

What’s your motivation?

One definition of the word motivation is the reason for doing something. (Oxford.com) This means each of us do (or not) because of a cause. This cause is with intrinsic (an internal driver) or extrinsic (an external driver) cause. Interestingly enough we are not all motivated by the same things or in the same way.

Understanding difference in motivating drivers helps us to understand ourselves bringing a great sense of self awareness to why we do what we do and what causes us to what we do. It also helps us to understand others and the simple fact that others do not act or react the way we do. Other’s propensity for internal or external stimuli may vary from us.

If you are a leader or manager this may help you to respond differently to your employees. Understanding difference in motivation may help you to make different decisions and take different actions toward employees instead of those rooted in your bias or tendency. The benefit is alignment of leader to employee that results in behaviors that maximize performance and success for individuals and the organization.

So, ask yourself – what’s your motivation? Then ask your staff and peers. Once you get the response and discover the differences, see how you can adapt to promote getter productivity and results so everyone has a sense of satisfaction.
