Communication, commitment, and the management of meaning

A project management team with an ethic of compliance is one which plods steadily along, merely getting the job done. By contrast, a team that is inspired by a meaningful mission and led by a highly motivated leader is going to perform much better and reward its members with a more satisfying experience. This article discusses how to get beyond the compliance ethic and find the sources of commitment and motivation. Leadership communication is exercised hands-on, face-to-face, and makes team members feel that their tasks matter. Commitment can be fostered through optimism and effective human support systems.
