The Five Best Ways To Motivate Your Team

Not everyone is born to manage people, and some are better at it that others.

 

However, as motivational author John Wooden said, it’s the “little things (that) make the big things happen.”

 

In this article, we give you ideas for five “little things” that will boost the morale of your team and hopefully increase their motivation and performance.

 

1. Create incentives

Everybody loves something for nothing, so consider regular incentives to encourage your staff to push a little harder. Something like “a bottle of champagne for the most new sales leads in a week” is always something that will grab staff attention.

 

2. Say thank you

Don’t take your team for granted. Always say “thank you” when they’ve done good work, and make it clear that you appreciate their achievements.

 

 

3. Acknowledge occasions

Make sure you have reminders set for all of your team members’ birthdays, and do something to acknowledge them. Similarly, a bottle of wine and some chocolates at Christmas show staff that you appreciate what they do.

 

4. Listen to concerns and ideas

Managing staff is a two-way process, so you should be asking your team how you’re doing as well, rather than just “ruling from above.” If your staff are unhappy about something, or have ideas of how to do things differently, take their ideas on board.

 

Even if you don’t end up implementing half the suggestions you receive, the fact you are giving them consideration goes a long way to keeping staff motivated.

 

5. Avoid micromanagement

Staff members tend to work better when they are given ownership of tasks and a certain amount of trust. So don’t complain when a team member is five minutes late back from lunch, or if they do something in a slightly different way than you would have done it.

 

Obviously you must keep an eye on the big picture, and deal with anyone who is taking liberties, but generally it’s best to leave a little room for freedom and creativity.
