A high performing team is one that is highly motivated. They take on challenges with an eagerness to exceed expectations, they don’t blindly follow orders, they look to improve upon them.
When your team is motived, mistakes are reduced and management time is minimised because they can function autonomously.
Sounds great right?
Now, here’s what happens when your team isn’t motivated: every job assigned to them is done to the minimum and nothing more, mistakes staff see are ignored and dismissed as ‘that’s not my problem’, sick days go up and turnover increases.
We see this all the time at companies, some teams work as 1 unit, helping each other succeed, while other teams at the same company struggle with politics and bad attitudes.
The thing is, it often comes down to the leaders managing the teams that makes all of the difference. Some leaders nurture, lift up and motivate their teams while others push down and silence their teams. The results are as you’d expect.
In this lesson, we’re going to cover how to get the most out of your team by keeping them motivated and engaged at work.
