It’s the New Year Let’s get your business rolling and flowing, to ensure that you become more profitable in this year. Leadership and motivation are the essential, driving glue when it comes to successful businesses. “Satisfaction depends not merely on having goals, but on having the right goals,” most successful companies “stand for something and contribute to the world.” Today we take a peek preview into to some of the factors that contribute to successful businesses through inspired leadership and motivated employees
Happy staff | Motivational Strategies
Making sure people enjoy coming to work. Without the employees, a business would never be what it is, ensuring that your employees are happy is a key factor, in ensuring that your business flourishes
It’s all about an environment that makes teams feel like family. Having your teams multitask is important it keeps them from getting bored and stuck in a rut- you can have your team scale up the ladder internally for instance one can start as a receptionist, and have them doing marketing, room for growth is always important in an organization
Empower Your Team
You can train facilitators to get teams to share what they’re working on, get exposed to new ideas and encourage each other to make commitments–and report back to the chapter when they’ve done it. Create accountability and provide role models. Get members to also get a say in what they want to learn.
“If you hire well and people have a sense of pride in what they’re doing, that’s a great motivator”
it’s important that everyone in the company is a shareholder, from entry level to president, and they understand they’re doing this for themselves as well as others. It’s important to remind people of the company values, because when those are aligned, you create an atmosphere where everyone is building together. Nothing compares to that.
You can’t get everybody to give the best of themselves unless you understand what drives each individual and what they care about the most. They know I want them to make more money, but the last few years we’ve been better about finding ways to provide personal growth and holistic fulfillment.

Before you can ask clients to live their brand, you have to lead by example. Unless you are willing to own it, consumers won’t believe in you. Embrace a “brave” philosophy so everyone knows what you stand for. It gives us a clear path to realizing your potential.
Keeping employees inspired:
People won’t come to work motivated every day, so you have to do different things because everybody responds to different motivators. Maybe it’s letting someone speak at a trade show, or offering a flexible schedule or having a fitness-oriented culture.
One thing that motivates is providing employees with resources for learning and professional development, try to let employees be entrepreneurial within. Kick off your New Year with a strategic plan and a stable business blue print
