How to influence employee behavior is considered a rare and special skill that companies around the world seek in leaders that they hire. Individuals interested in building a foundation for a successful leadership career should focus their learning on how to create a positive environment and effect for change on their team and those employees that they supervise. Management is considered to be a social art that often requires a personal touch. A successful manager needs to constantly maintain their team’s motivation. With an effective motivation scheme in place, managers are much more likely to retain the most talented employees and achieve goals.
