Managing multiple office tasks can be stressful and can leave you drained. For this reason a team leader should be able to help each member regain momentum. And what better way to do it than by inspiring them.
Inspiration is quite a strong word considering how it makes an individual give their 100% in everything that they do. Forget moving mountains, an inspired individual could juggle three of them. Although there are multiple ways one can draw inspiration, we can’t force it out from others. There are certain ways to do it.
But instead of asking them about updates, and paperwork, it’s also sometimes recommended to ask personal questions. You could ask them about their day, how they feel, or even what kind of lunch they have. That way, they can feel the importance given to them. Apart from that, asking deeper questions such as why they made this type of decision for a certain task, or why they decided to work in your company, can lead them to a better understanding of their actions and a clearer view of what they want to do.
These past few years, several Internet challenges emerged and took over our lives. The ice bucket challenge, chubby bunny challenge, and the running man challenge, just to name a few. Seeing our response to these viral challenges, we can conclude the humanity loves facing challenges. Just remember that overcoming it should have a satisfying price if something is to be a challenge. It’s for bragging rights for the internet world. But in the business world, there is something you need to wage that peaks at the interest of your team such as a raise, promotion or recommendation. You can expect them all to do a job well done in doing so. And once your expectations have passed or exceeded, remember to never get back on your word.
The most important task a leader has is to inspire his members well. However, you may ask, “How can ordering people around inspire them?” True, most people don’t want to be bossed around. But in an entrepreneurial setting, employees need someone to tell them what to do because, if the leader doesn’t lead any of the members to do work, they would be lost and confused, leaving the company in a difficult situation.
Appreciate their work
Constructive criticism can go a long way for improving your member’s performance, but appreciation can also provide this and more. Appreciation can help them strive to perform better, and help them be able to see their flaws and improve. Be cautious on praising them, however, to avoid building them with too much ego. Hearing a warm thank you for a job well done at the end of a very stressful and frustrating day at work can be just enough to do the trick and have them keep them returning to your company’s door. http://bit.ly/AwesomeFreelancer #Awesome #AwesoMarky #Management #HumanResources #Leadership #Va #Offshore
