Inspirational Motivation

  • Creating the Starbucks Brand

    • Required employees to learn about the process of coffee, so they could share this with guests

    • Intense training for superb service

    • Quality in the product, appearance and service

These factors contributed to motivate employees by empowering them and giving them a job they could feel prideful about.


Intellectual stimulation

Intellectual Stimulation

  • Giving his team the autonomy and freedom to make decisions.

“Early on I realized that I had to hire people smarter and more qualified than I was in a number of different fields, and I had to let go of a lot of decision- making…” -Howard Schultz

  • Challenging one’s own beliefs and the status quo.

“Grow with discipline. Balance intuition with rigor. Innovate around the core. Don't embrace the status quo. Find new ways to see. Never expect a silver bullet. Get your hands dirty. Listen with empathy and over-communicate with transparency.” -Howard Schultz


Individualized consideration

Individualized Consideration

  • Supportive Climate

“Our mission statement about treating people with respect and dignity is not just words but a creed we live by every day. You can't expect your employees to exceed the expectations of your customers if you don't exceed the employees' expectations of management. That's the contract.” - Howard Schultz

  • In 2008 when the company was performing poorly he came back as the CEO and needed the help of his people. He needed people who believed in the company and posed the question to his management essentially saying if you don’t believe in the company it can’t be successful.
