In the article  “8 Ways Leaders Can Motivate Employees Beyond Money”, the author affirms that non-financial motivators may be more effective in the long term than financial incentives.

Based on a McKinsey survey, the author then provides the following 8 principles, which can be very useful when money is in short supply or when a financial incentive is not available:

  1. Energize your team
  2. There’s more to life than work
  3. Put your people first
  4. Act with integrity
  5. Be a great communicator
  6. Be a great listener
  7. Be a problem solver
  8. Lead through experience and competence, not through title or position
