Bringing positive thoughts and enthusiasm into your work place, is always a great advantage for the employees’s happiness, productiveness and morale. Especially if it’s provided by professionals in this field. Here are couple of examples how motivational speaker can improve staff morale:
“Creating games with critical work scenarios“
Big corporations, often times can drag down the tension to the final link in the corporate pyramid. The General Manager could drop a few word bombs to the managers of the sector and the Sector Manager to his assistant, so the assistant would become relentless towards distributing task to the workers, and it will all throw back to the General Manager Performance report. In a situation like this, a vicious circle is started and many times no one can understand what exactly happened.
Get to know how every staff member responds to a different situation. Put the employee’s imagination to the limit in some critical problem solving scenario. In this way they will get to know what everyone’s weakest character feature is and how to compensate trough collaboration. Also they can learn, what to do to help each other.
“Handing cards where staff members can write down their aspirations towards life, and big likes and dislikes “
Even if you work with only few colleagues in a same office , you could easily become annoyed by more trivial problems like your coworker’s habit of chewing gum too loudly, or his/ hers choice of music etc.
Good communication and understating of your colleague’s lifestyle can increase the level of tolerance and thoughtfulness. In this way you will know what not to do, so you won’t step on anyone’s toes not deliberately, and what to do to make them happy.
“Make sure everyone gets the recognition for their work effort”
My boss often time says, that the best way to become someone else’s leader is when somewhere in your past work experience you had the same job position as you current employees have in the moment. In that way you can easily understand the critical points of their frustrations or difficulties for getting the certain job well done.
By showing interest in every individual, you will show concern and make them fell important. Occasional awards and compliments are always welcomed. Taking time to learn about their problems or difficulties in doings certain task, can make long term improvements in staff productivity. Taking time to contemplate person’s qualities and put accent on them can really boost their confidence.
“Take all your positive energy and enthusiasm into your work place”
Some people are reacting like sponges to negative energy, while others do not perceive it all. However, it’s a good habit to eliminate the grumpy face in the morning, or the use of a higher tone in a conversation, just because we should always consider the atmosphere we are creating around us. Be the person who inspires people and not one who push people away. Make yourself available for your colleagues and always show pleasant manners.
Breathe in, breathe out, everything will work out just fine. I’m here for you if you need me.
“No pain, no gain. Share someone else’s success story”
As mentioned earlier, often times by gaining one skill and getting the best at it, we can easily forget about other fields in our lives that are in need of constant development as well, till the point that they don’t play any role in our character description anymore.
So it happens, we can lack of empathy, emotions, understanding, patience etc. By analyzing someone’s success story, and all the challenges that person has been through and how many sacrifices has been made to achieve a certain goal, we can remind ourselves why it’s important to upgrade our knowledge and culture on daily bases, or in other words – get super hyper motivated.
“The old-school priorities list”
It is really amazing what a piece of paper with few doodles on it, can do for your mind set. It is so simple, but when put on a visible place, it’s a constant reminder of unfinished business. Add a small reward to every task in the list, and enjoy the fruits of sweet completion. This is highly recommended advice for anybody actually.
If you ever fell worried that you pile up much more negative than positive energy at your work place, just remember that this is something that you do 1/3 of the day , and if you exclude sleeping, 1/2 of the day. So if this problem comes to alert, there is definitely something you should do about it to change it.
