However, the most important factors for motivating an expert are challenges, learning and development. Positive experiences are important on the journey to expertise. Challenges should continue to grow bit by bit, so that employees are constantly on the edge of their comfort zone.
Matti Alahuhta summed this up in his book Leadership : “When a person is in a role that interests them, where they learn something new and that is sufficiently demanding, they will grow both as a person and as an employee and deliver results.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
A young expert looks for challenges, is courageous, and does things from the heart. This and many other things will be discussed at Fondia in the next Managing Experts workshop (the workshop is in Finnish). Come along!
