Clearly communicate company goals
Articulate what it is that you want people to do, or they’re not going to be able to do it. If team members understand your goal and how their individual work contributes to attaining it, they’ll be more motivated to produce results.
Give simple rewards
Everyone likes to have their good work recognized – when they reach milestones, or go above and beyond to complete their work on time. Simply buying lunch or giving out monthly gift to top performers goes a long way. This is not about handing out participation trophies but even a simple “thank you, I know you worked hard on this,” will make team members feel noticed and appreciated, which, in turn, fuels motivation to do more.
Encourage a positive work environment
To advance, you have to make your office a place people actually want to be – where the focus is on learning and not what went wrong. An office space with a good vibe encourages inspires productivity. This way, you avoid stifling creativity and innovation with fear.
