Hello Dear friends!
A very big part of being an entrepreneur or dreamer of any kind is to understand the importance of leadership and how it can affect your business.
Great leaders inspire their employees and teammates to push themselves beyond the boundaries of their capabilities and do things that not only profits them, but serves the purpose of the entire team.
But it is unreasonable to expect every one of your employees and co-workers to give the job a hundred percent and do everything within their power to accomplish the collective vision of your project.
Because after all, they are human and have to deal with many dilemmas in their personal life.
Their relationships directly affect their emotional capacity and that in turns influences how they work.
One thing you CAN do is make the work interesting for them.
There are many techniques and ways with which you could do that and, in this blog, post we are going to review some of them.
The first method that you could apply to your project is make things challenging for each individual.
Some leaders make the mistake of bringing in generalized challenges and pitting employees against each other.
While that might work in the math class of a high school, it is not efficient in work environments.
Instead of that, leaders can bring challenges for the whole team, where the accomplishment of the challenge relies directly on each individual’s willingness to work together as a team.
For example, if you are the owner of a big hardware shop, the collective challenge could be attracting a certain number of customers in the span of three months.
One of the other things that can make the work interesting is asking your employees to do something that would benefit them on a personal level.
For instance, you could dedicate a certain hour of week to exercising together as a team for health and fitness.
You could give an assignment to one of the employees and ask him to learn another language for the company.
That way, the task is not just about the work that you do, but it also contributes to their personal gain.
This is a powerful motive for many people, as they constantly look for ways to improve their abilities and knowledge in order to have some progress in life other than gaining the same amount of money over and over again by long and tedious work hours.
As a great leader, you must constantly try to keep the flame lit inside your employees, and what better way to do that than making the work interesting?
It is not just about the morale of your workers, it is more about the progress of the project or the company, since motivated people work better towards your ultimate goal.
