“Cocoa is for Cobblers” – How Not to Reward and Motivate Your Team
Tomorrow is Christmas and somewhere Santa’s elves are hard at work trying to finish cobbling gifts for all the good little girls and boys. In this classic SNL holiday spoof of Glengarry Glen Ross’ “Coffee is for Closers Only” scene, we learn that rewards like a new toboggan, some candy canes and a few shiny new tools can go a long way towards motivating Santa’s team. Rewards are great motivators – but we know that threatening your staff only builds a culture of fear, and that’s no way to build lasting employee engagement. Give your team the tools they need to succeed, and always recognize that success in a way that is heartfelt, meaningful and positive. And in the meantime, enjoy this hilarious holiday clip.
We hope the spirit of the season finds you merry & bright! Happy Holidays!
