Perfect your art as leader of leaders

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Any leader placed in charge of other leaders knows that it takes more than the usual rewards to motivate these movers and shakers.

Jeswald Salacuse, author of Leading Leaders, notes that motivating leaders is a lot like shopping for people who have everything: They don’t want or need typical incentives such as more money, perks or responsibility. In fact, they may see those things as disincentives.

So, how to keep the leaders you lead engaged?

It’s your job to find out what motivates each one and to satisfy those needs. That may call for you to provide distinct, “special” incentives that vary from person to person. And you may catch some flak because that’s not “equal.” Don’t worry about it. Meet those psychic needs and you’ll have a happy team.
