One way I can motivate Rhonda is by acknowledging her work and giving her praise. If she does a good job on something ill make sure she knows that. Also, if she is doing extremely well, I could promote her to manager or a position higher than she is now.
Lastly, employees need to realize their full potential. Sometimes employees are very good but based on the work that they do they never realize it. One way I can motivate Rhonda is by giving her more challenging and creative jobs.
