Do you find yourself setting goals and pushing them aside to keep up with a rigorous schedule?
Give praise as warranted. There is nothing that motivates an employee to perform at maximum capability than being told how their contributions are positively impacting the business.
Ask for suggestions. A company’s profitability and integrity are often influenced by the satisfaction of its employees. Considering their experience and suggestions can bring innovative perspectives and pragmatic solutions. An easy way to introduce this system is making inquiries individually or in the next company discussion, or creates a designated group.
Observe the productivity of what is being done, rather than what isn’t. Pressuring employees for better without acknowledging their effort makes for dissatisfaction. The old adage is true: a company is like a well oiled machine, you need all the parts working together smoothly.
Set clear expectations. Assignments, projects, and consultations are most effectively completed when there specific aspects necessary for completion. Provide the rubric and let the content be created.
A great employee, no matter how intuitive, is not a mind reader, and needs direction to get to the destination.
Take initiative. Employees will be eager to provide proposals and appeals if they are being seriously considered. Regardless if it is a prospect or not, addressing it with employees will show you are receptive to the concerns, suggestions, and integrity of the company and its staff.
