How to Motivate Your Staff to Learn

Ben Affleck knew how to motivate a group in the movie Boiler Room.

Learning on the job is one of the most vital factors in the success of any business. Unfortunately, too many business owners, CEOs and managers struggle with showing their staffs how important learning truly is, and with that, their staffs lack motivation.

The other night I was talking to a very cool, smart scientist who worked at a Harvard (It’s not every day you get to talk to a Harvard scientist). He was explaining to me all kinds of things about DNA and other scientific stuff…things I definitely did not understand. I told him how I really struggled with chemistry and biology in high school and college.

“If only you knew back-then how important chemistry and biology would be later in life,” he said, “then maybe now you wouldn’t be having so much trouble!”

That’s what teaching and learning is all about. Sell-in the message you’re trying to get across. Make people understand why they need to know the information you’re giving them and how helpful that stuff can be later on.

Once people have a firm grip on how and why something could be important to them later on, they’ll be more able and willing to learn on their own. That’s what you call motivation!

...Speaking of motivation, here's something that will get you going today, Ben Affleck's speech from the beginning of Boiler Room:
