The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy, Engagement, and Creativity at Work

Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer
If people in your organization cannot make consistent progress in meaningful work, they cannot have good inner work lives. They cannot make that progress without support?without a strong daily dose of catalysts and nourishers. And that support depends on you. Far too many managers are unaware of the importance of progress and therefore neither worry about it nor act to support it. As crucial as progress is to inner work life, and as obvious as it might seem, we are convinced that most managers simply don?t think about it, systematically, every day.

Toxins are the opposite of nourishers, and have the opposite effect. The four toxins are disrespect, discouragement, emotional neglect, and antagonism.

It?s not just how managers interact directly with subordinates. It?s also establishing the foundation for subordinates to give each other nourishment. That means establishing a positive organizational climate and considering personalities and work styles as well as skills when assigning people to teams.

Emotional support.7Because emotions constitute one of the three essential components of inner work life, people feel more connected to others at work when their emotions are validated.

Encouragement.6Encouraging people can nourish their inner work lives in a couple of ways. First, a manager?s own enthusiasm can help to increase employees? motivation for the work. This is especially true when that encouragement includes statements about the importance of the work. Second, when a manager expresses confidence that people are capable of doing the work well, this message increases their sense of self-efficacy?their own belief that they are effective human beings.

primary way in which nourishers fuel inner work life and progress is by infusing the work with greater meaning. When we care about the people we work with, we want to succeed for them. When our colleagues become a kind of family to us, work can take on new meaning in our lives. Human connections really can inspire people to ?go the extra mile for the team.? Creativity and productivity result.

As a starting point for your own journaling, we suggest trying to answer the following questions at the end of each day: What event stands out in my mind from the workday, and how did it affect my inner work life? What progress did I make today and how did it affect my inner work life? What nourishers and catalysts supported me and my work today? How can I sustain them tomorrow? What one thing can I do to make progress on important work tomorrow? What setbacks did I have today, and how did they affect my inner work life? What can I learn from them? What toxins and inhibitors impacted me and my work today? How can I weaken or avoid them tomorrow? Did I affect my colleagues? inner work lives positively today? How might I do so tomorrow?

To boost your own inner work life as a manager, be sure to provide your people with the catalysts and the nourishers they need to make progress every day, and buffer them from inhibitors and toxins as much as possible. That way, you?ll make progress in your own managerial work, setting up your own positive progress loop.

local leaders can create a temporary oasis for a team, a department, maybe even an entire business unit. But that doesn?t excuse top organizational managers from their responsibility to create a positive organizational climate for people and their ideas. It?s a waste of local leaders? talent and energy to bear the sole responsibility for sustaining their people?s inner work lives. And they can?t do it indefinitely.

This is how a manager creates a climate of psychological safety?by focusing on the work and what can be learned from it, rather than berating subordinates for errors. More generally, this is how a manager can sustain virtuous cycles of progress and positive inner work life in the face of the inevitable setbacks that occur in any complex project.

Focusing on inner work life one day at a time keeps you vigilant, but people make sense of each day?s events against the backstory of the days that preceded it. Myopic focus on a narrow timeframe can blind you to the big picture of what?s really going on with both inner work life and progress.

Business schools, business books, and managers themselves usually conceptualize management as managing organizations or managing people. But if you focus on daily progress in meaningful work, managing people and the entire organization will become much more feasible. You won?t have to figure out a way to X-ray subordinates? inner work lives because, if you facilitate their steady progress in meaningful work, make that progress salient to them, and treat them well as people, they will experience the perceptions, emotions, and motivation necessary for great performance. Their superior work will contribute much to organizational success.

Third, micromanaging leaders are quick to affix personal blame when problems arise, rather than guiding subordinates in an open exploration of causes and possible solutions. Those subordinates end up striving to look good rather than honestly discussing obstacles and how to surmount them. They live in fear, and their perceptions of the manager settle into a permanent trough.
