A question that arises is why do employees resist change. People would rather stick with the status quo than adjusting to the change. It is important to understand why change is so hard to deal with to begin with so managers can get the gist of how to keep employers motivated. First, employers tend to resist change because they think it is going to conflict with their self-interests. Change can increase the employee 's workload and in return, there can be a loss of power, prestige, pay, or benefits.
We want people to be motivated and be satisfied as if they believe in internal locus of control, but understand that they live in an external locus of control environment. I can do as much as you can to be able to be successful in your job assigned but understand that you are limited to that place. With this understanding we will have a better outcome than if they go in with dreams of moving to the top hierarchy. d) Include a discussion of what you will do to ensure ethical conduct of your employees. In order to ensure ethical conduct, we would focus on the external locus of control because the leaders would not want the serfs to rise up and rebel.
They therefore establish a more motivating climate for the employee. What's more, although many standards or controls are simply estimates of what should occur if certain assumptions are correct, they take on a precision in today's control systems that leaves little or no margin for error. Managers would be better off establishing a range rather than a precise number and changing standards as time passes and assumptions prove erroneous. This would be fairer and would positively motivate employees. There are three fundamental beliefs underlying most successful control systems.
Employees are the key factor delivering the improved process. They can be opposed to continuing change if the is no consistent communication about the constant stream of improvement. Moreover, reinforcing the employees to get involved in continuous improvement is another issue in the process of employee engagement. Just the informing of change is not important, they should be ensured to contribute to the improvement by themselves as individuals which the methods for doing this should be effective (Gunnarsdóttir 2012). To overcome those barriers to continuous improvement, identifying what needs to change and why it must change will help the “change process” for employees not to be astonished.
To be an effective leader the person has to have skills and qualities in them. It is hard to quantify the value of interpersonal relationship but without this relationship the productivity can suffer a lot. The leader should be able to create a good employee relationship which ultimately helps to create an enjoyable work environment. If the employee feels threat of communicating what they want to communicate then their behavior will be defensive. Employees use these mechanisms by not providing response on their assigned task and ignore the leader.

Difficult goals should be achieved through guidance, feedback and advice. This can be linked to job satisfaction, if goals are set at difficult yet achievable levels and attainment provides satisfaction and reinforcement for the attainment of subsequent goals. Goals which are either too simple or too difficult to achieve may not motivate individuals. If employees are not involved in the goals setting process they may not be motivated to strive to achieve these goals, this is why managers should take the time to set these goals with their employees. Appropriate advice and guidance must accompany goal achievement or this if not present may have a negative effect on the employee’s motivation.
