“Before you can have great employees you have to put them in a position to create their own future.” Garrison Wynn
Inspiring your employees
Imagine your best employee decides to quit. How much time and money will go into finding an employee that will bring their productivity to the level of your former employee? Months? Years? Never?
Keeping good employees requires motivation on your part. Thankfully there are many ways to successfully motivate employees. All of them require you to focus on your employees, who are looking to find their own success. Let’s take a closer look at some of these motivational elements, with the help of some great quotes.
“The art of communication is the language of leadership.” James Humes
Good communication is fundamental to having loyal, productive and engaged employees. If you’re having problems keeping good employees, the low-hanging fruit for you may be to just start talking with – not to – your people.
“Professionalism shouldn’t be defined by a persons paycheck, role or title. It should be defined by a person’s work ethic” Janna Cachola
You can’t expect your employees to work hard or behave the way you want them to if you don’t lead by example. If you show your excitement about the company’s goals, your employees will get on-board and work to achieve those goals.
“Real power comes by empowering others.” Denis Waitley
If you really want to empower and motivate your employees, you need to take their advice and implement it. You should also give them the authority to make their own decisions, such as providing service for a client up to a certain point without needing to get prior approval.
“Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.” Norman Ralph Augustine
Motivate employees by offering training to give them the skills they need to climb their own career ladder. Grooming young employees to move on to better opportunities is valuable to you as well because it enables you to build your company’s reputation as a great place to work.
Keeping your employees happy will help your bottom line. Build them up and they’ll never let you down.
