Nothing amps up productivity better than a workforce that is motivated and excited about doing their jobs. Sometimes, however, just getting them to show up can be quite a feat. So how do you turn a grumbling, unproductive workforce into a team of employees who are enthusiastic about going above and beyond the call of duty? To help with this, here are seven tips on how you can motivate your employees to new heights of productivity:
1) Lead By Example
People love following a leader who isn’t afraid to practice what they preach. If you want your employees to be enthusiastic about their jobs, you’ve got to be enthusiastic about yours. You can’t expect a workforce to have a positive outlook on their jobs if their leader doesn’t have a positive outlook himself. There’s a well proven theory in psychology called emotional transfer. Basically, it means that if you yourself are motivated, and you show it, it will quickly spread to the rest of your workforce as well. Work hard towards your company’s goals, never get caught grumbling, be as productive as you can, and always greet everyone with a smile. In short, be a leader that your employees are more than happy to follow.
