Office stress and the role it plays in keeping an employee motivated can be a real challenge to manage. Often, the workplace is a place where employees are asked to meet the expectations of others. When this expectation falls short, it becomes difficult to keep the motivation going. It is important that you can establish some type of accountability in your office environment so that employees can set goals for themselves and work towards them.
One of the easiest ways to have a high degree of office stress is to create expectations about what needs to be accomplished in the office. When an employee knows that they will meet goals, they will try harder. Unfortunately, there are always exceptions to the rule, and you will find that sometimes a goal will not be achieved. However, if you have some way of telling your employee how close they are to meeting their goal, this will serve as a good motivator. When everyone is motivated to do what is necessary to make the job easier, the work will get done faster and results will come quicker.
Another aspect of goal setting is that the person who is most responsible for achieving the goal will usually feel like they are the person who has failed. This may not be the case. It is important for you to know exactly what it is that you expect. This is because it is possible for a person to accomplish very little without setting specific goals. Sometimes the problem is not with the person who is actually doing the work, but with the manager. If you create goals with clear expectations, you will be able to maintain motivation in a highly productive office environment.
