Motivating your team is imperative to the well being of its members and the accomplishment of the goal. While motivating others isn’t always easy, there are ways you can help to unleash the power and potential of your team.
Here are a few powerful leadership skills you can easily incorporate to bring out the best in others:
1. Ask questions rather than give direct orders.
2. Give specific and sincere praise for accomplishments, so as to let people know that you have noticed.
3. Celebrate successes.
4. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
5. Respect the professionalism and expertise of those you supervise. Ask for their input in planning, and give them autonomy and authority to complete projects.
Motivating others isn’t always easy. It doesn’t really come from you (it comes from within your employees), it may be easier and more fun than you think. It’s not about what you have to control, it is about what you can help unleash!
If you’d like to work on motivation, or any other leadership issue, do hesitate to call.
Wishing you the best always
