Effective Business Leadership; 7 Team Work and Motivation Tips
We all know team work and motivation are closely linked - then why are so many managers failing their people? The UK Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found almost half of UK employees are dissatisfied with their relationship with their line manager. If your glass is half full you could say that over half are satisfied, but that's not good enough for me!
Here are 7 team work and motivation tips to get your people genuinely raring to go at work;
Many adults are petrified of learning due to bad experiences at school, so encouraging them to learn more about gardening, interior design or tennis might give them the confidence to go on the scary presentation skills course they've successfully avoided.
Obviously you need a basic salary for people to live on, but older people may value an enhanced pension package, whereas some may prefer to buy holiday. In the UK, employers can use a "salary sacrifice" scheme to buy child-care vouchers, reducing both the individual's and company's tax and NI bills. Flexible hours and working from home are other do-able options. Just get HR and accounts talking, and your people will never want to leave.
Be part of the group that ARE satisfied with their manager by taking inspiration from these team work and motivation tips. Small changes can lead to bigger changes, so even if it's just upgrading the coffee and biscuits, you'll be on the road to better morale at work.
