What really motivates your boss?

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

Motivation comes in three flavors: power, affiliation and achievement. So do bosses. Know which motivator drives your boss—and what he or she really wants—to be more successful on the job.

• Power bosses want things to happen their way, so follow their lead.

Working for a power boss means helping to build an empire and get things done his or her way, not necessarily the “right” way.

• Affiliation bosses want to be popular and liked. They may say things like, “We’re one big, happy family at this office.”

Part of your job is helping the affiliation boss manage other relationships. Lean heavily on your emotional intelligence.

• Achievement bosses want results. They’re pleased when they see employees implementing smart working strategies.

Your strategy with an achievement boss is to measure what you do, then discuss those measures with him or her.
