Motivating your team can have a big impact on performance and the general atmosphere in the workplace. So, we have created 5 simple steps to follow that will give your team a boost and increase overall productivity.
1. Share positive news
During meetings, or around the office during conversation, share information about strategic moves and company goals. Sharing important information can help demonstrate trust to your employees which makes them feel valued and part of the bigger picture.
2. Set short-term goals
Goals of any kind can help motivate employees. Creating challenging short-term goals for your team can focus their energy and get tasks completed. Once these goals are achieved, praise is important.
3. Say thank you more
If you go out of your way to thank team members for a job they have done, and explain how or why they did it well, it will make their day and will empower them to do more and reach other goals.
4. Offer flexibility in the workplace
For specific projects try allowing your staff to work from home in the peace and quiet. It is important you see good results from this though – if you do then you can allow the privilege to continue.
5. Do your bit for the team
Show your staff that you can muck in too. Little gestures like making the tea for people will speak volumes about you and how you perceive your team.
