Motivating Your Team (Part 6)

motivationIn conclusion, the easiest way to figure out how to motivate your team is to ask yourself what motivates you. Take a step back and a more global view. Does the environment you’ve created encourage the team to not only be motivated from above, but also from within?

I highly recommend you look at the culture of your company. Write it out. Make it clear to everyone. Motivating your team and maintaining high morale can be challenging, but it can also be fun. Instill a strong sense of belonging, respect, teamwork and fulfillment. When a culture becomes the life blood of all in the company, the team will support each other and you. To understand the importance of this, study the successful companies that have dedicated themselves to maintaining a very positive and nurturing culture. Take a look at Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. Read books like Jim Collins’ “Good To Great” that detail how the strongest U.S. companies don’t take this subject lightly.

thumbs upCreate an environment that motivates you, and you’ll create one that motivates your team. Lead by example. Communicate. Be a strong supervisor, stick to your convictions and your team will stick with you.
