    How to motivate one of my employees to work to his full potential?

    I am working in a government organisation. One of my colleagues is very good at his work but he is never able to work to his full potential due to some reason or the other. My boss has given me the responsibility of motivating him so that he works to his full potential. How to motivate him?

    Dear this is good that your boss has selected you to motivate that employee and you have been selected because you deserve it and your boss know that only you can encourage that employee that means you have the quality to provide motivation to the peoples and you should think it positive because a optimistic and positive thinking person may really lead sometimes that is why first of all you should communicate with that employee and try to make your communication and conversation more about the business and about your working status because if you will talk professionally then it will be good for both of you and this is the right time to prove yourself in the company that you may handle any type of work that is why first of all you should keep yourself better and disciplined in the office and then you must help that person in his works and tasks

    You should ask your manager to give a hard task to that person and tell them that you will help him about this work and when you will help him then he will learn something new in the work and you should instruct him in a right way that what to do and how to do and how to handle big works and tasks in the company and how to keep our performance good in the company and when he will learn new things then he will be self motivated and you must tell him that work is everything in our life and believe in work not in destiny because work can change anything but destiny may not and also give him some new advices about his work and what may be done in future if he do his best and say him that you should analyze yourself and you should analyze your efficiencies and strengths because you may do better than all because you do the work just like a peace of cake then he will understand that what he may do for the company and how can he make his career better and get more opportunities in the company

    All the best

    Hello,

    It is always good from your point of view to give your employees necessary
    motivation and courage to perform better. You should give him the freedom
    to decide what is best for the situation. Situational decision making palys a
    very crucial role in our life. You can also provide him new task to see wheather
    he is performing well or not. Sometimes give him stressful work to judge his
    level of stress taking ability.

    Individual councilling is another option to see wheather he is having any mental
    block that force him not to perform well. Last but not the least give him moral support
    and encouragement.

    Bye,

    You can ask your manger to praise him for the little work he does even you could praise him for the little amount of work he does so that he could feel happy about it and may go an extra mile to work little more try to make that person part of the team work you do by giving him an important role in the work taken up give the person responsibility and make him feel good and confident by showing the person that you trust his capabilities and in all the work assigned to the person you could help partially so as to make the person feel that he has enough support and help coming in which could make him motivated and you could ask your manager to give away simple goodies if any at times to motivate individuals.

    Hi,

    I think good idea your boss because motivated employee
    you have been selected because you deserve it and your boss know that only you can encourage that employee .
    you have the quality to provide motivation to the peoples and you should think it positive because a optimistic and positive thinking person may really lead .
    sometimes that is why first of all you should communicate with that employee.
    And try to make your communication and conversation more about the business and about your working status.
    Because if you will talk professionally then it will be good for both of you and this is the right time to prove yourself in the company.
    That you may handle any type of work that is why first of all you should keep yourself better and disciplined in the office .
    Then you must help that person in his works and tasks.

    Thanks!!!
    GOOD LUCK.
