Best Ways to Motivate Your Team 

 if you're in charge of a group of

employees or even one or two people then

chances are you know it can sometimes be

hard to motivate a team to produce their

best work as a leader being able to keep

your team motivated and on task is one

of the most beneficial skills that you

can possess and fortunately this is a

learner bull skill thankfully there are

plenty of effective tips and tricks that

you can use to become a more powerful

motivator in a little time at all and

all great leaders are great motivators.

first you need to create a collaborative

environment it's been shown time and

again that employees do their best work

when they feel like their efforts are

actually valued the paycheck may be what

motivates employees to show up at work

but feeling valued is what motivates

them to do their best once they are

there with that in mind one of the best.

ways to motivate your team members is to

create a collaborative environment where

they are able to share their input and

feel as if they are a part of the big

picture process there is a very popular

video called

start with why and it's been viewed more

than a million times so tell people why

this job or this work is important so

people why it affects other people

remember if a person has a big-enough.

why according to Nietzsche they can bear

any how or what so why is the job

important even if all else is equal and

employee working in a collaborative

environment it's going to be much more

motivated than an employee who feels

unheard or undervalued next make sure to

share your vision with your team it

could be difficult for employees to

muster motivation if they don't know

what they are working towards if you

want your employees to feel motivated by

the work that their

doing be sure to show them how their

efforts are helping to make that big

picture vision possible just saying

something we like we we can't do this

without you wow that's a great motivator

is you are very important to the success

of this project

fabulous motivator understanding what

you are actually working towards is a

huge motivator the why and team members

are a lot more likely to deliver their

best work if they are keyed in on your

vision if they know exactly of what it

is and why in addition it's very

important to give positive feedback a

little positive feedback and go a long

way and giving your team praise when

they have earned it is by far one of the

easiest and most effective ways to keep

them motivated through the day in many

cases a single compliment is all that it

takes to brighten and employees outlook

and leave them feeling motivated for the

entire rest of the work day what I do in

my office as I go around and talk to

people and I ask them what they're doing

and I compliment them on their work just

like going around and watering flowers

you go around and boost people's morale

and motivation by just simply talking to

them in a positive way just be sure that

your positive feedback is specific and

genuine your employees will be able to

tell the difference between genuine

praise and just flattering words make

the effort to understand each team

members work style different employees

will be motivated by different factors

as a leader it's your job to understand

the work style of each team member and

pinpoint what it is that motivates them

the best some employees for example may

find friendly competition highly

motivating while others may have no

interest in competing with other

coworkers some employees may work best

when they're working alongside others

while other employees may work

better alone these are just two examples

of how a team members individual work

style may affect how they are motivated

to give their best effort rather than

applying general motivational strategies

to your entire team it's far more

effective to get to know your team

members and work toward motivating each

of them on an individual basis

next to truly motivate your team you

need to lead by example

many years ago I traveled through Africa

and I had the opportunity to meet Albert

Schweitzer the greatest humanitarian of

his day who built a hospital in the

center of Africa and took care of 1,500

people at a time over the years and he

said that you must teach men by example

for they will learn by no other and I

never forgot that if you want people to

do something you have to lead by example

because they will not learn any other

way to leaders lead by example in every

case a few things are more motivating to

a team than seeing their leader roll up

his or her sleeves and get to work

Albert Schweitzer when he was 91 years

old would work a full day he would

travel around the hospital grounds in a

jeep with his assistant and he would get

out and he would work he would help lift

building materials he would help serve

food he was quite amazing and everybody

just worshipped him and never forgot him

for the rest of their lives and like me

I certainly didn't so as a leader your

team members look to you to set the pace

and define what excellent work looks

like when your team members see you

working hard and getting your hands

dirty they're much more likely to work

hard themselves if you want people to

come in early coming early yourself if

you wanted people to work efficiently

throughout the day work efficiently

yourself if you want people to complete

their tasks you complete their to your

tasks as well if all you're doing is

handing out orders you can't expect

those orders to be followed with my

effort or enthusiasm lead by example and

your team members are far more likely to

follow your lead and always ask this

question what kind of a company would my

company be if everybody in it was just

like me it's the great question of

leadership and finally allow for

personal development opportunities most

employees want to work in an environment

where they are encouraged to grow and

progress in their careers rather than

working in an environment where they are

just treated like a cog in the machine

this is considered to be the most

important motivator of all a feeling of

progress and growth and becoming more

and more of what you are capable of

becoming when an employee feels like

their work is actually helping them

climb the corporate ladder they are sure

to be motivated to do their best by

encouraging personal development and

working to provide your team members

with opportunities to advance in their

professional careers you can give your

team something much more motivating to

work toward than just a paycheck ok now

think of one action that you can take

immediately to motivate your people to

higher levels and quality of work and

performance what one action are you

going to take immediately and with what

person are you going to take that action

How to keep your team motivated for fitness ,work or anything?

 Your team slacking that's the

question we've asked over 1200 leaders

and managers for the past 17 years when

people on your team are not contributing

they're not pulling their weight

literally in a very first demonstration

of this people were pulling a rope on

average people were able to pull 63

kilos of force per person you put those

people in two teams of three it goes

down to 53 kilos per person you put them

in teams of eight now we're down at 31

kilos per person this social loafing

effect has also been replicated in

intellectual challenges creativity tasks

complex reasoning and it occurs across

cultures India Japan Taiwan in addition

to the u.s. I had an opportunity to work

with the senior vice president at the

bulk Matic transport company

Brian's safety team at bulk Matic was

tasked with a really important project

how to install 500 smart drive cameras

in their tractors and produced coaching

clips and instill driver acceptance the

team had been working for several months

but there hadn't been any progress the

team wasn't engaged drivers were

quitting team members were not showing

up to meetings and when they did show up

they came 60 to 90 minutes late they

hadn't produced a single coaching clip

the phone calls were wandering off in

different directions so Brian and I put

our heads together and worked up a four

pronged intervention plan to increase


Step one : Develop a team

contract a team contract is a one-page

preferably half a page mission statement

of the team focusing on three things the

goal the responsibilities and the norms

everybody signs everybody commits Brian

called me the first day after he

introduced the contract to his team he

said this was the most productive

meeting the team had ever had and it

surprised him how much a simple tool

could increase the engagement of the


 Step two : short frequent meetings as

opposed to long drawn-out meetings 

The research is in teams work to fill their

time Brian's safety team noticed that

the longer the distance

was between the meetings the more the

team started to drift off track so Brian

started hosting more frequent shorter

meetings and in each one of these

meetings they revisited the team


step 3 : Stand and Deliver

Literally every week

team members need to stand up and report

out to the team what they've

accomplished that week

case in point Google Ventures weekly

Tuesday meetings everybody stands up and

reports out what they've accomplished

the research is in teams that stand up

are 34% more productive than teams that

sit down 

step four : Create a line of sight

when team members can see how

they're having an impact on the end goal

they're much more engaged let me give

you an example this was looking at

engagement in a fundraising organization

three groups one team had direct contact

with the beneficiary another group read

a letter from the beneficiary and one

group had no contact at all with the

beneficiary one month later the group

who'd had direct contact with the

beneficiary raised a hundred and seventy

one percent more money so what happened

at bulk matic the safety team

successfully installed 500 smart drive

cameras on schedule prior to the

intervention they had only installed 60

after several months and at-risk driver

behaviors cut to only 5% down from high

double digits the team contract was a

game-changer for bulk Matic and it can

be a game changer for your team as well
