Team work – Success breeds Success
Working side by side with one another: it’s a great way for your employees to learn, to coach and be coached, and to get inspired to do their best. Unfortunately, with reengineering and downsizing, we sacrifice a sense of community among employees.
When people work in teams or one on one, you have an opportunity to help them bring out their best. In fact, synergism can occur even when workers simply observe other workers, watching them do things right over and over. It’s motivating to watch success in action, and it instils a sense of confidence – "Hey, if she can do it, so can I." The next thing you know, the effects are cumulative and momentum has developed.
Isn’t that what you really want? You want to foster that sense of community. You want to inspire and breed that synergy, to encourage that feeling that builds an environment where people can feel good things happening, where they feel compelled to jump in and get involved in their work community.
Success breeds success. What matters is how they perform and how they feel motivated to succeed.
No matter how much you may coach or mentor your employees, they’ve got to want to succeed and they’ve got to believe in themselves. . If you give employees abundant encouragement and support, they will believe they can succeed. Then each success will breed more success, as they synergistically build a momentum of realising their potential.
Remember that all motivation is intrinsic. The desire to excel comes from within. As a manager, focus your energies on encouraging that desire in your employees by providing opportunities to learn and perform – and excel!
