Have you ever tried to learn or work on a new project at work, but you just had no motivation to do it? Was it because you weren’t being led by someone with motivation or did you lack it yourself?Being motivated by someone or having motivation makes all the difference in being able to complete a new task or challenge. If you don’t have that then the task is going to feel like more of a chore. If you are in a leadership position it is important that you do just one thing… motivate as a leader and you will notice all the difference in your team and work environment.
Don’t Be the Wrong Guy to Follow
Throughout your work experience you will run into either good leaders or bad leaders. There are numerous aspects that will qualify you as a good or bad leader, one of those is motivation. Motivation is important for a leader to have. If you aren’t a motivated leader then why should you lead at all?
How you act at the work place dictates how your team or the people below you are going to act. If you are motivated and motivate your employees then they will feed off of it. Showing that you care about the company and your employees creates a better and more successful work environment. But that environment won’t be created if you don’t demonstrate your motivation for your team to succeed and to improve. Make goals for your team to complete each day, week, or month for them to be determined to complete so they feel successful in their work.
Motivate as a Leader
A bad leader doesn’t show any motivation for improving; they just continue to settle for what they’ve been doing and what works. They make it clear about what is important to them, which is usually money and/or power. They aren’t giving their team any motivation or creating any relationships with them. Your team isn’t going to have your back or support you if you don’t show you care.
Motivate. Motivate your team. Motivate yourself and strive for the best. You’ll be a phenomenal leader if you demonstrate this to your team. Yes, there are a lot of other aspects that are important too, but being motivated and showing it can create a different and more positive atmosphere at the work place.
That’s all for today’s tip! Keep in mind, that being able to motivate as a leader will help you and your team.
If you follow this advice, then you and your team will be able to succeed in your next task/challenge. If you got some value from this, or know someone that might, please feel free to like, share, or comment!
