Employee motivation is a crucial aspect of an effective team. An unmotivated team will be unproductive, and liable to cause more conflict within the group.
A motivated team consists of members that naturally strive to get the task completed quickly and to a high standard. They are more likely to go beyond the minimum expectation, they will be enthused, engaged, and able to contribute to the task with ideas, solutions and creativity.
An unmotivated team will need constant leadership intervention just to get them moving and completing tasks to the minimum requirement. They are less likely to contribute beyond what is asked of them, and are less likely to offer useful ideas. They also have greater potential for bringing down the naturally motivated members and therefore sabotaging large numbers of the team.
So it is safe to say that a highly motivated team is essential to business success but how do we create a naturally motivated team?
Here are ten ideas to help improve team motivation.
- Be motivated yourself.
- Understand what motivates each member of your team.
- Give them a challenge.
- Treat them with respect.
- Listen to them.
- Help them learn.
- Stick up for them.
- Let team members do things their way.
- Appreciate them
- Reward them. Team building events are a very effective way to show your appreciation, give them a fun ‘reward’ day, and use team building elements to help strengthen the team.
