10 Unique Ways To Motivate Your Team

More than ever, a leader’s job is to do more than shout orders from a corner office. Today, leaders must work hands-on with their teams, understand each person’s unique strengths, and finally, have an engagement strategy in order to keep everyone motivated.

We asked members of Forbes Coaches Council to weigh in on just how to do this. Here’s what they said.

Know Your People And Their Talents

Even the best collaborators need the opportunity to showcase what they bring to the table to strengthen the team. Know your people beyond prior work history and current responsibilities. Understand what makes them feel important. Leverage those talents in new ways to keep them inspired, engaged and performing at a higher level. The entire team will benefit and become motivated to do the same.  –  Jen Kelchner

10 Essential Things To Create A Breakthrough In Your Life Or Business

10 Essential Things To Create A Breakthrough In Your Life Or Business

“I’m waiting for my breakthrough…”

This is in the Top Three list of phrases I hear the most from others. I would argue that our breakthrough is waiting for us to be ready for it!

In order to welcome in something new, you need to make some adjustments to what you currently are doing.

Here is a 20 minute video training on the 10 essential areas you need to prepare to get your breakthrough in life or business.

The 10 Essentials

REST

Take the time to find space and recharge. Naps are always great! But, rest is about taking the time to find some peace and reconnect with you.

STRETCH YOURSELF & PRESS IN

Get out of your box! Press in to what is coming with anticipation. Your comfort zone will never accommodate a breakthrough.

OPEN YOUR MIND & CHANGE PERSPECTIVES

You must stop doing what you normally do. Get fresh insight. Look for a new viewpoint and open your mind so that you can find clarity and see in new ways.

LISTEN & BE COACHABLE

Be open to new insight and feedback from others. Remaining coachable will lead to success.

DO SOMETHING CREATIVE

Read a good book. Create art or music. Go on an adventure and explore. You’ll gain fresh perspectives and feel recharged!

STOP TRYING TO FIT IN

Again, you are wanting to create and experience something new. Stay in alignment with who you are so that you experience a real change.

RELEASE THE HYPE

Let go of the dogma and boundaries that may be holding you back from moving forward. Let go of finite set of perceptions so you can expand your borders. Create places of hope and release the negatives.

CLEAN HOUSE & CHANGE PLAYGROUNDS

Some folks in our circles are only intended for a season. Take a look at who you surround yourself and identify if anyone is limiting you from moving into the next phase of your journey.

GET OUT OF YOUR RUTS

[Tweet “A rut is a coffin with the ends kicked out. “]

Change how and what you do. You can’t create a space for a breakthrough if you are stuck in your habits. The way you’ve always done it isn’t working. Time for a change!

MEET YOURSELF WHERE YOU ARE TODAY

Let go of the expectations you currently hold that tell you you should be further down the road or doing something differently. It is a journey. It will never look like you think it should look. Meet yourself where you are today!

 

Your takeaway here is to stop your “doing” and start the “being”. Be you and implement the essentials. You will begin to see things shift rapidly and that breakthrough will show up!

Which of these areas has been a game changer for you?
