Self-Esteem at Work

Whether for yourself or others, working to enhance self-esteem is always worthwhile. Here are five ways to motivate people whose self-esteem is not high:

  • Set goals with a clear payoff. Provide a payoff and a reward to encourage people to work further.
  • Don't blame individuals for problems. Show them how to overcome external problems and help them differentiate the external issues from their own competence.
  • Be supportive. People need to be part of a team and feel accepted. Create a positive work environment.
  • Minimize conflicts and ambiguity. These create stress and keep workers from striving for more.
  • Set goals carefully and give people proper training for tasks.
