BBP 048 : Top 10 Ways to Motivate Your Team

Remember we were recently talking about goals on the podcast . . .  I hope you were able to plan what you’d like to achieve this year.

However, those are very much YOUR goals . . . but what about your team?

Do they share the same vision as you?

Are they motivated enough to help you reach those goals?

Motivation plays a major role when it comes to team performance. If your team members feel demotivated or lacking in support from YOU, they will likely deliver poor performance which can affect your business and your goals.

It’s a domino effect and you mustn’t take this lightly.

I understand that running a business can be tough but it certainly doesn’t mean you have to do it all on your own – in fact you shouldn’t. That’s why you have a team to support you, tho help you with your success . .  but you have to support them as well.

You need your team working WITH you to give you the best chance of achieving those goals.

So the very first step that you need to take is . . . TO MOTIVATE THEM.

But how do you do that on top of everything else and where do you start?

Well that is exactly what I have for you in today’s episode . . . 10 tried and tested, PROVEN ways to motivate your team.
