Exploring motivation – the slips and surges

You might find that some days you open your laptop and crack on, raring to go. Other days, you have to force yourself off the couch to reach for the remote control.

Sound familiar?

That’s because motivation isn’t constant. It’s natural to seeing motivation waning at this time of year!

It’s perfectly reasonable, and a normal response, that these peaks and troughs in motivation may feel even more pronounced and frequent right now, with the extra pressures we’re all under.

My latest blog explores a handy model I like to keep in mind when I’ve fallen off the wagon and already broken my healthy eating new year’s resolution, or whatever it might be.

Recommended reading: Third Sector –
‘Are charities facing a wellbeing crisis?’

One of the things I love most about working with non-profit sector clients is the passion and commitment of the people who work in it. Every day I have the privilege of coaching, training or facilitating virtual team away days for inspiring individuals who give their all to their work. However, I’m often struck by the high levels of stress that many of you are grappling with, and the profound impact this has on you and your teams. I know from my own experience just how corrosive stress can be, and finding a way to deal with this lead to me to qualifying as a coach (you can read a bit more about this in my blog here).

The issue of stress struck me particularly strongly the other day when I was sent the article in Third Sector about the mental health and wellbeing survey they recently carried out.

You’ll find it here. Sadly, 94% of the 350 people working in or for charities surveyed reported experiencing feelings of overwhelm or burnout as a result of their work in 2020. 

It’s propelled me to do even more this year to help the sector address this important issue, and I’m currently working on launching a new team development offer that will help teams build their resilience and boost their well-being through the coming months and beyond.

If you recognise some of the experiences described in the article and are finding things hard, please get in touch. I’m committed to helping as many of you as possible through this time, and if you think a free, confidential chat with a qualified coach might help, just drop me a line
