Management is nothing more than motivating other people. — Lee Iacocca
As a leader, your impact on employee motivation is immeasurable. By your words, your body language, and the expression on your face, as a leader, you telegraph your opinion of their value to the people you employ.
Feeling valued by their supervisor in the workplace is key to high employee motivation and morale. Feeling valued ranks right up there for most people with liking the work, competitive pay, opportunities for training and advancement, and feeling “in” on the latest news.

So long as the manager’s intentions are to further the legitimate goals of the organization, the approaches are ethical, objective and highly effective.
