How to make great things happen: motivation at work. How to lead more effectively, win the war for talent, build strong teams. Over 285,000 people have watched this video clip from a presentation to 500 of MTN’s leaders.

Surveys show there’s a huge crisis of motivation in most large corporations, which is why they continue to spend billions of dollars each year on motivation courses, training in motivation, meetings to boost motivation, incentives to strengthen motivation, meetings to analyse problems in workforce motivation, tools to measure motivation, mission statements and so on. Problems in recruitment, productivity and retention, problems of commitment to teams and corporate agendas.

But the motivation gap is fundamental. People are passionate – but mainly about life outside of work. Indeed the very phrase “work-life balance” tells us that most people think that work is the opposite of life. So how did we get to be in such a motivational crisis?

Motivation has moved on and left most corporations behind

One thing is clear: motivation is changing. Just look at the current obsession with work-life balance, which is now a powerful force in every corporation, number one or two career priority for the majority of executives in the US, UK and Japan. Forget the old days when ambition meant rushing up the career ladder. Today the great dual ambition is to have a satisfying job and a fulfilling personal life.

Or take the growing motivation for community action: 60% of all US workers give time each year to work for causes they passionately believe in. The average time gift is 200 hours. If each hour given by a US citizen was charged out at the average industrial wage, you would be talking about an industry as large as 4.5% of GDP or 12% of the Federal budget.

And other countries are similar, whether people are rich or poor, in Western Europe or East Africa. Despite all the gloomy pundits some years back, community motivation remains very much alive. But these motivation changes are rarely reflected in corporate policy – or if they are, in a very superficial way. That’s because CEOs and senior teams are still over-influenced by last-century management ideology about efficiency, bottom-line profit, shareholder value, return on equity and other motivation – killing fixations.

“How you make a difference to people – why shareholder value is a lousy motivator”

Video of event for fund managers – many fund managers are typical of those in other industries. They lack passion for what they do because they don’t understand the impact they have on other people’s lives – in their case helping pensioners / savers.

Management Gurus – high priests of confusion ?

You’ll find that management theory is still mainly built on two things: psycho-theories from one or two centuries ago and also case histories of organisations. Both are rooted in the past, can be based on subjective interpretations of data, and rarely concentrate on motivation. Case histories rapidly date as our world changes – just look at old business books and count the case examples of companies that now don’t even exist, or are basket cases, or riddled with recent scandal – and the old psycho-theories raise many questions. Life in the third millennium has moved on a long way from unproveable nineteenth century introspections about unconscious motives and desires.

You’ll find great business ideas formed often many decades ago about the nature of organizations, team management, excellence at work and the rest. All vital and important things without which no business can survive, but very little that grabs you by the throat when it comes to passion, commitment and motivation.

Hey – if there was, we wouldn’t all be in this mess.

Without management experts we would all be the poorer, with lower productivity, inefficient structures, bad organizations and wasted resources. However it is a historical fact that management fads come and go faster than ever – often in less than a decade – leaving tens of thousands bruised, bashed and confused by each one that sweeps into their organization. You just have to look at a list of business titles published over the last five decades to see that. And these fads actually undermine motivation.

Bashed by all the latest fads

Core competencies, empowerment, balanced scorecard, adhocracy, action learning, 360 degree appraisals, the learning organization, career anchors, champions, decentralization, vertical integration, quality management, re-engineering, down-sizing, psychological contract, mission statement, portfolio working, management by objectives, managerial hierarchies, just-in-time, lateral thinking, emotional intelligence and work/life balance.

First are four top turn-of-the-century gurus: Peter Drucker, Tom Peters, Michael Porter and Gary Hamil. Each has had a huge impact on business thinking today but are not so strong on motivation..

Between them these giants of corporate thinking have contributed a huge amount to corporate efficiency, productivity and effectiveness, generating wealth for millions, contributing to the economy and to society.

What about passion for living?

Great leaders, great visionaries, passionate about their messages – but what do they tell us more generally about human passion for life?
What do they tell us about why people act as they do? The choices they make? The things they feel strongly about? The culture we live in and the changing lifestyles choices people are making?

Of course, all of them have addressed every topic under the sun at one time or another on platforms or in writings, but what happens when you look at the main thrust of their influence?

Peter Drucker

The problem is that Drucker says everything about managing a corporation but far less that captivates the human spirit. Almost nothing about managing personal life as a whole – or about work / life balance or broader motivation issues.

Tom Peters

Tom Peters talks of excellence in companies, and also talks about passion in leadership but says almost nothing about excellence of personal quality of life, why personal commitment to workplace goals is falling and why for most people, their strongest sense of motivation is for the work they are not paid to do, the things they do outside of work, simply because they believe those things are worthwhile.

Michael Porter

Michael Porter talks of being competitive, but people are more than links in a value chain. He has a good understanding of company survival, but a relatively poor understanding of personal survival and of what people are looking for in life. Motivation is hardly at the heart of what he writes or says.

Core competency has become a widely accepted concept, encouraging corporations to focus on strengths. However, finding a company’s core competency, or even changing future corporate history does nothing to motivate me to get out of bed in the morning.

The world’s leading management gurus, on whom hundreds of thousands of management consultants base their work, are relatively silent when it comes to motivation, and are nowhere when it comes to finding one single unifying factor that drives all human action.

And we find the same when we review dozens of other widely respected gurus of management theory. Here are a few more popular buzz-words:

Actions are not the same as understanding passion that drives these actions. Strategy does not necessarily provoke personal motivation. Leadership can encourage motivation but only if it understands what makes people passionate. What’s the point of a balanced team if people can’t care less? Leaders doing the right thing is often not the same as having a fired-up workforce. Passion is based on more than mere ideas. Since when did anyone at work get really get excited about a structure? Quality of products and services is hardly the core motivation for individual life, for what we do or what we buy. Re-engineering of the corporation is not the same as re-engineering people’s motivation. Objectives do not provide people with meaning and ultimate sense of purpose. Team psychology is almost irrelevant to question of personal passion and aims in life. “Company-wide quality management” is not the same as connecting with what people feel strongly about. Global branding does nothing to motivate. There is more to motivating people than having great style.

Most recognised authorities on management score low on motivation with the exception of Charles Handy, Edward Schein, Elton Mayo, Elspeth Ross Kanter, and Douglas MacGregor. And most of those who scored high are dead, or retired, and most of their works were published decades ago.

Why corporations have been given such a narrow view of motivation

Why the problem? Well one obvious reason is that he who pays the piper calls the tune and management consultants by definition are asked in by corporations to improve their bottom line profitability, not to massage the inner needs and motivation of their employees, except as a profit-enhancing exercise.

So its hardly suprising that we get on the whole a very narrow view.

One thing is clear: there is one mega black-hole of fresh thinking about motivation, about what really makes people tick, about why people act as they do.

Harness all the passions people have and they will follow you to the ends of the earth.

Strength training: How, why and where?

Ask yourself the following questions.

  • Would you like to enjoy a more independent and active lifestyle, now and into the future?
  • Do you want to improve your golf, tennis or bowls game, walk or cycle faster or further?
  • Would you like to meet other people your own age in a supportive, friendly environment?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, you should consider strength training. What is strength training? Strength training (or resistance or weight training as it is sometimes called) involves use of weights (hand weights, machines or even your own body weight) to build muscle strength and endurance. To be effective, the program must be progressive—as you become stronger, the weights you use should increase. Why should I do strength training? Strength training has benefits no matter what your age, but it is particularly important for older people. As we age, we lose muscle mass and bone density, resulting in the much of the loss of function we associate with getting older. But you are never too old to gain muscle strength—and that’s not all you can gain! An appropriate strength training program can also assist you in:

  • Maintaining (or regaining) your independence and ability to do day-to-day tasks and leisure activities—shopping, playing with the grandchildren, gardening, getting out of chairs and climbing stairs
  • Improving your posture, balance, coordination and flexibility
  • Feeling better about yourself—more confidence, self esteem and capacity to enjoy life
  • Preventing or improving management of chronic conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease
  • Managing your weight – as with any exercise you are using more energy than you would if you were not being active.

What is special about Living Longer Living Stronger ? Our Living Longer Living Stronger™ partners provide strength training programs specifically designed to meet the needs of older people, including:

  • Initial and ongoing assessments so your program can be tailored to your specific needs and abilities
  • Fully qualified and committed instructors
  • A safe, supportive environment
  • At least two group sessions a week, at a low cost
  • An opportunity to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee after each session.

At last! A mobile phone for seniors. Introducing the COTA mobile phone.

8th of February 2011

UPDATE: 12 February, 2014.
Apologies, the COTA mobile phone is no longer available for sale. However, if you have a phone and would like some help using it, you can attend the COTA office for a 1 on 1 “Demystify your mobile phone” session.Please telephone COTA for information: (03) 9654 4443.

With lots of what you need, and nothing you don’t!

Research conducted by COTA and supported by many other organisations, clearly shows that older people can not or choose not to access technology because of many varied reasons. In the case of mobile phones, there are hundreds of mobile phones available, but very few that are made with older people specifically in mind. These phones are not user friendly and come with features and gadgets that older people will never use. The purchase cost of the phone is also a barrier for many people.

As a result, COTA has for some time been investigating what’s available in the market. We are excited and pleased to announce that mobile phones, specifically for older people, are now available from COTA, as an exclusive member benefit.

The COTA Mobile Phone has features and functions that our members have asked for. These include:

  • Large easy to read screen numbers
  • Large tactile buttons, three times bigger than the average mobile
  • Adjustable ringing and call volume
  • Hearing aid compatible
  • Digital number announcer
  • Hands-free speaker built in
  • The phone is small and compact and weighs only 75 grams

Other handy features include:

  • LED flashlight
  • FM Radio
  • Birthday reminder
  • 6 ring tones to choose from
  • Speed-dial up to 10 numbers
  • Keypad lock
  • Send and receive text SMS messages

The phone is unlocked so you can use it on any GSM network with the mobile phone carrier you choose. This means you can continue to use your existing GSM SIM card without penalty or purchase a rechargeable GSM SIM card.

“SOS” Feature
Another unique feature is the “SOS” button, on the back of the phone. Users can pre-program up to four mobile phone numbers (trusted people) that are called simultaneously when the button is pushed in the case of an emergency.

The phone also emits a continuous alarm once pressed. As soon as someone answers, the caller is then able to speak with them hands-free via the phone’s speaker.

If you aren’t able to speak, an SMS text message (“Emergency call, please call me”!) is automatically sent at the same time, notifying you need assistance.

Should none of the four mobile phones answer or no numbers be pre-programmed, when the “SOS” is pushed, the default number called is “000”. The caller has the same experience as dialing “000” manually using the mobile phone or using a landline.

Because it is a mobile phone, you can feel safer when you leave home because you don’t have to remain within a certain distance of a base unit for the “SOS” function to work.

The phones are available in black and white. They come with a 24 month warranty on the phone and 6 month warranty on the accessories.

So if you are looking for a low cost mobile phone designed with older people in mind, that enables you to stay in touch and feel safer in the event of an emergency, COTA can help.

Order yours today and receive it within 10 working days!
