Passionate vs. going through the motions

Who would you rather have on your team? A bunch of people who just show up everyday and go through the motions, or a team of people passionate about the work they do day in and day out.

The answer to that question is obvious.

We all wish we had that team of passionate, engaged, and productive employees.

But this is the real world, and it usually doesn’t work out that way.

Can you make a worker passionate about their job?

So the question becomes, how do you breed passion into a person about something they’re not passionate about? Can you make someone like their job?

In all honesty, that’s the wrong question to be asking. The issue is not whether or not someone likes their job, but rather, are they motivated by the role they play in the organization. It’s about how the person sees themselves, and not how they see their job.

Motivational style

Different people have different motivational styles, and they’re naturally wired to play different roles on any team. Once you uncover those, you can begin to shift the tasks a person does to line up with the way they’re wired.

In our years of serving employers here at the Sweet Spot Effect, we’ve seen that once this alignment begins to happen, employees never look at work the same, and that’s because they never look at themselves the same.

They begin to realize their personal work superpower, and how important they are to the team once they’re operating in their Sweet Spot.

The Sweet Spot Survey

And that’s where our Sweet Spot survey comes into play. It’s a short survey that takes less than 10 minutes to complete, but will give you insight that lasts a lifetime, and that you can immediately begin using to shift the tide among your team towards passionate and productive work.

So if you’d like to move the passion needle up a few notches in your team, go ahead and give the Sweet Spot survey a try. Take it yourself. It’s free to try out!
