Developing Self-Motivated People will help leaders motivate their people by applying Self Determination Theory (SDT) developed by Edward Deci and Richard Ryan. To be fully motivated and more productive, three needs (nutriments) that should be met at the same time. These are relationships, competency and autonomy. Leaders need to ensure that positive relationships are encouraged so that trust builds as people work together. Leaders also need to let people know when they are doing a good job (competence) by setting goals, key performance indicators (KPIs) and performance reviews against which they can be measured. Above all, peoples initiative (autonomy) should be welcomed. Leaders need to allow people freedom to explore and make choices, even mistakes. They then should ascertain how levels of engagement with work have risen, through pre-tests and post-tests.
