It is only natural to have uninspiring days at work, no matter how amazing your job is. We’ve all been there, feeling low and just not wanting to do anything. As a boss or manager, making your co-workers feel inspired or continuously engaged in their tasks with active energy can fall on your shoulders most of the times. You need to find those right buttons to click to keep their morale alive and kicking. That is why, we bring you some tried and tested ways to keep your staff in full zeal. Have a look!
Be more social
Communication is the key! We can’t stress this enough, but it is one of the most basic rules of a satisfied and happy work environment. Talk to even your lowest staff daily. Make them open up to you regarding their personal life to keep tabs if they’re facing some problems at their homes which resulted in lack of inspiration. This will give you the direction as to how to keep them motivated in the best way possible. Let your team gather up each morning to share their views on most general of things like weather, political situations or sports. This simple activity could spark up a conversation which would then become a source of inspiration for them.
It doesn’t matter how small of a task they accomplished, your simple words of encouragement could go a long way to make them feel inspired, making them want to do more. Acknowledge their feelings, thoughts, ideas and appreciate their efforts with a simple gift hamper. Being grateful is the key to harvesting more happiness and keeping your work space productive. You don’t have to break your bank to appreciate their efforts. Even a small gift basket can turn your uninspired co-workers into passionate ones.
Give them break
At the times when nothing works to fuel your passion, the wisest thing is to let it go for a while instead of forcing it in. Give breaks to your employees when they don’t feel like doing anything. Let them have a walk outside the office or a lunch at their favourite place to kick start their inspiration. This will have a relaxing effect on their minds and they will somehow feel refreshed to get back to work with a fresh enthusiasm. If they’re still pushing themselves to work, then let them have a leave for a day to roam around the city to find things that inspire them the most.
Write a motivational note
There are little things in life that matter the most and help you pick yourself up in times when nothing work. A simple note could make your colleague happiest even when he or she is going through the toughest times. Write a motivational quotation or a happy note and leave it at their desk when they’re not around. The simple feeling of knowing that someone cares will help your mind to shift back to the passionate mode.
Collaborate with your team members on a regular basis and build a work family to lift everyone up when they’re down!
