Connecting People to Productivity

Throughout my 25 plus years professional life in the corporate world, more than believing, I developed a knowing that good inspired people, in the right place, can create a positive impact in many other’s lives. This knowledge made me dedicate my life to coaching leaders, managers, teams, entrepreneurs and helping companies create cultures that improve their business performance, bring value to society, and at the same time, make their people feel more alive at work!
In other words, this is the way I chose to contribute in creating a better world to live in.

"Your company is your people, the mindset of your people becomes your company’s mindset, and a positive mindset creates positive results." Employees are critical pieces to the success of companies.  Hiring the best employees, training them and then letting them "drift", is not the way to go! It is important to monitor their performance and assess how their motivation is doing - thus they are integrated into the organization, and are more efficient and productive. Workplace motivation is an essential factor in a company's success. When employees feel motivated, the turnover rate is low and performance is high.  What is Workplace Motivation? Motivation in the workplace can be defined as the employees’ willingness, determination, and commitment to be part of the company. In this context, high motivation is synonymous with commitment and interest in keeping the job. 


The popular phrase "Choose a job you love and you won't have to work a day in your life" was Joana's life motto and what she always dreamed of experiencing at work.    However, her professional reality was quite different. Joana loved her job but she wasn't happy. She was tired, constantly overwhelmed with work, and showing signs of low motivation. Her co-workers around her complained about the exact same thing.    The increasing complexity of the corporate world makes Joana's situation even more common today. Work (the exercise of mental or physical effort to achieve something) is rarely done without stress, worry, or even pain. Humor can help improve these situations. 


"Motivation is like a daily shower, it doesn't last long, so we take a new one every day." This quote is from Zig Ziglar, an author and motivational speaker who has traveled around the world for more than three decades inspiring people and organizations with wisdom and good humor. As he stated, motivation is not a permanent state. If it is not cared for and nurtured, it dries up. Ideally, organizations should find ways to continuously motivate their teams and team members.
