April 17, 2018

A motivated team is a productive, focused team. Your people are the lifeblood of your business operations. If your staff are sluggish, so is your business. Business funding fires the financial furnace supporting your growth objectives. Alongside this, staff motivation fuels high engagement, retention and productivity. This is the currency of a high performing business. With this in mind, here are three top tips to motivate your staff:

Clarify your vision

People rally around a common purpose, particularly when this resonates with their personal values and drivers. So why is your business here? It is vital that you define and express this as a mission statement. Having a key business proposition aligns your team to your business vision and mission. What is more, it clearly articulates the important role they play in ensuring your business delivers on its purpose. When your business mission statement aligns with the personal purposes of your people, here is where you will strike real gold. Be sure to cultivate this connection regularly. In this way, your team will gain strong personal fulfilment in the work they do – so they will do the work with passion, pride and precision.

Pull together as a team

Team-building is key to motivating your people. Remember the maxim, together we are strong. This is true of a strong collaborative workplace culture. Bring your employees together through fun team-building outings, charity or volunteer work in the community or organised social get-togethers. Focus on:

  • Developing problem-solving skills
  • Enhancing communication
  • Nurturing leadership capabilities

Demonstrate an attitude of gratitude

Business funding plays a big role in helping your business make milestone achievements. Yet funding does not work in a vacuum. Behind every business landmark stands a hard-working team. Plus success comes in many scales and forms. So celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small, together with your people. Say thank you when a staff member does good work or goes above and beyond. Put on a team lunch shout, give movie vouchers, bring in birthday cakes or implement a rewards and recognition program where your team can acknowledge each other. When people feel valued they stay engaged, motivated and continually prove their worth.

When your people thrive, so does your business. Your inspired insightful leadership that is crucial to motivating your team so they can deliver on your growth goals.
