Be the source of energy for your team
Don’t be the type of leader who drains the energy of the people around them. Instead, bring in some positive energy and passion into the workplace every time you are there. Employees who see their leader being enthusiastic and passionate about going to work is a good reason for employees to be motivated to perform well at work as well.
Work is not the only things that matters in life
While you want your workers to do their nest to contribute to the success of the company, you should also acknowledge the fact that they are human beings also who have their own lives outside of work. So don’t make them do too much overtime when that time could be spent with their families. You could also organize a team building activity where they can bring their family along to it!
Be an accountable leader
All leaders make important decisions as well as the simplest decisions, like what store to get the next load of printer paper from! But what makes great leaders stand out is their willingness to hold themselves accountable for whatever may happen with the company. Good leaders inspire or motivate their employees by admitting their mistakes and not blaming others when something goes wrong.
Good leaders need to be excellent communicators. Unless you communicate well with your employees, there is no way they would know what you want from them and how they can meet your expectations. It is extremely important that you regularly spend time having conversation with them without necessarily calling a meeting. Be more approachable so you may encourage them to come to you when they need help.
Be an active listener
Active listening involves not just hearing what you are told, but also doing something about what you are told. You can motivate your employees by showing them that you understand their concerns and that you are willing to do whatever is required to assist them.
