Increasing the capabilities and productivity of your staff is smart business management.
The most important asset of any business is managers and employees. You, as a manager or business owner, are judged not only by the product you sell, the customer service you give, the restful night's sleep you provide in your motel, or the weekend of fun that your guests enjoyed at your resort. You are also judged by the friendliness of your staff, their alertness, their attitude, how they look, and the way they do their job. What did your staff do to send a satisfied guest or customer on his way or bring him back?
Getting people to work for you and with you as a team-and keeping them working is never simple. However, these skills pay handsomely in many fields.
Motivators are people who support and encourage their employees, instead of telling them what to do. The best managers are individuals who guide, discuss, and encourage others. With help employees can achieve outstanding results. A motivator is a colleague and a counselor all rolled into one.
Managing a team of individuals is not easy, and certain characteristics make some managers better than others. As with most other business skills, you can learn, practice, and improve the traits of good managers. You can always find room for improvement, and good managers are the first to admit it.
Whether your organization's vision is to become the leading supplier in the world, to increase revenues by 20 percent a year, or simply to get the break room walls painted this year, managers work with their employees to set goals and deadlines. They then go away and allow their employees to determine how to accomplish the goals.
It's easy for employees - even the best and most experienced - to become discouraged from time to time. When employees are learning new tasks, when a long-term account is lost, or when business is down, you are there - ready to step in and help the members of your team through the worst of it.
The overall performance of your team is your most important concern. You know that no one person can carry an entire team to success - winning takes the combined efforts of all the members of a team.
You will learn the most valuable skill of leadership - motivating and inspiring your creative and independent team members. When you show appreciation to others you improve loyalty and trust. People have a basic need to feel appreciated. People need to know you care. If you’re the leader, you can raise morale and create loyalty, job satisfaction, and motivation when you express appreciation to your staff for their efforts. You can invest in your employees now and "pay" them with sincere appreciation and achieve even better performance. Or you can "pay" later by seeing your team's performance sink and overall morale decrease. Sincere appreciation will motivate your team to a higher level and achieve more.
