Motivating Your Team 101

by Guest Author 6 March 2019 09:20

Have you ever wondered what things you can do to motivate your team and keep them engaged? Well, I'm glad you asked. We here at Valley Yellow Pages, have some tips that can help your business get past the "Yeah, we should do that" phase to the stage where you actually accomplish that goal.

Tip 1: CREATE A CLEAR ROADMAP THAT IS INCLUSIVE OF A COMPELLING MISSION STATEMENT

Here the idea is to make sure you set a clear path and end goal for your team. A big part of this is creating a compelling mission or vision statement that inspires members of your team to keep working toward your desired end state even when setbacks inevitably arise. Indeed, as the saying goes, without a vision, the people perish. Same concept applies to your business. If you lack vision or a desired end state, you and your team members have no idea where they are going or why they are doing what they are doing. Therefore, it is highly important to craft a clear and compelling roadmap that indicates where your business is going.

Tip 2: ASK FOR YOUR TEAM'S FEEDBACK OR OPINIONS

When employees are encouraged to give their input or opinions on business processes and procedures or products and services, they are more likely to feel valued by the business and committed to the direction the business is going in. This can also benefit you as a business owner as your team members may end up providing suggestions and perspectives that you would not have thought of. Insights from your team can lead to product or service adjustments that better meet customer expectations.

Tip 3: PROVIDE RECOGNITION WHERE NECESSARY

In business, you don't want to miss opportunities to give your team members a pat on the back and a sincere sign of appreciation for their contribution to the organization. Indeed, giving your team members positive feedback in various forms can be a huge shot in the arm and a source of motivation. You'd be surprised how far a little recognition can go with your employees. So don't hold back. When you see a team member add value to the organization, take a moment to acknowledge them and their efforts.

The above tips will help motivate your team members and keep them engaged.
