This is one of the big challenges of any manager. How do you ignite the “fire” within your employees.
What can a manager do to engage his team?
Here are a couple of ways to start motivating your team and engage them:
1. Believe in them – you need to be sure and never stop believing that people can make extraordinary things happen. You need to establish trust with them by applying candor, transparency, and always giving them credit for good performance
2. Create personal and professional connection with them – create connection and keep people informed and in conversation. Good leaders get into everyone’s skin, exuding positive energy and optimism.
3. Engage them – let employees be active in helping make things better. As them for ideas on how to improve the process and follow on them, if they create a great benefit for the company. More often then not employees can improve on the process and make it more efficient.
