How To Really Motivate Your Team
Be clear on what is expected of the staff as both individuals and members of a wider team.
Setting realistic goals that go above just the basics – having targets that are stretching and developmental.
Running regular team Meetings that are structured, follow a standard pattern (Agenda, Minutes, Venue and Times) so that there are no surprises.
Running supportive and regular 1:1 Supervision sessions covering an agenda that is mutually agreed and circulated ahead of the meeting.
Running supportive and regular 1:1 Formal Appraisal sessions covering an agenda that is mutually agreed and circulated ahead of the meeting.
Being a visible and credible focus of leadership for the team and its individual members.
Being clear what professional standards you are looking for from the team and individuals so that performance parameters are understood and are clear.
Being well-organised yourself so that you become an effective Role Model for staff to use as a template for their actions.
Make sure that you regularly keep your staff up to date with information from both inside the organisation and from external sources – nobody likes being in the dark and the more information they have the more involved they become.
Give praise and supportive feedback as regularly as possible so that staff can learn and develop from what they have achieved.
Keep your promises – always!
Have an Open Door approach – always!
This List is not exhaustive – you will add in other topics depending upon your own circumstances.
