The First Step to Motivating

How much time do you spend motivating your team?

Trick question? How about this for a bold answer: all the time. Every moment that you spend with your team is an opportunity to motivate.  When you inspire your team their performance elevates.

But, where to begin? How do you get that fully energized, totally motivated team?

The first step to motivating others is wanting them to be happy.
Wanting them to be happy enough that you ask. Wanting them to be happy enough that you collaborate on creating an environment where their happiness can flower and grow.

No problem, right? Try this: ask them what motivates them. What energizes them? What gets them excited? And then?  Listen.
