Business and Personal Growth Coaching Series By Richard Weaver – Part 3 in partnership with Groupe INSEEC London presents: Business and Personal Growth Coaching Series By Richard Weaver.

Helping business owners, directors and investors address their business issues, take on the challenges, improve results, secure funding and kick start growth.

A little motivation goes a long way, a new survey from OfficeTeam recently suggested. More than six in 10 (61 per cent) workers interviewed admitted it’s at least somewhat likely they would leave their current position if they felt disengaged. That’s bad news for some employers: more than one-quarter (26 per cent) of professionals said their company is not effective at keeping staff motivated. Its even more bad news if you are a Startup. Perhaps you have a global team that works remotely, how do you make it work effectively?

Its a known fact that you can’t force anyone to work together as a team because the harder you try the faster you’ll push them apart. What you will often need is a clear and symplistic vision, working to short-term goals is always best. Keep the startup mentality ditch the guise of the “boss”  and adopt a leadership attitude, finally apply the “Three C’s” to build successful teams: Cooperate,Collaborate and Coordinate.

  1. Five ideas for keeping employees motivated:
  2. Keep them out of the dark. Whenever feasible, give your staff updates on the company’s financial performance and long- and short-term goals, and explain what this information means for them and their jobs.
  3. Ask for input. 
  4. Break out of comfort zones. Encourage staff to take on new responsibilities and projects.
  5. Discuss career aspirations. It’s crucial for employees to set career goals so they feel they’re working toward something and can see that the company supports their professional aspirations.
  6. Give them a break. Remind workers to take regular breaks to recharge, and set a good example by doing so yourself.

In part 3 of this video series, Richards examines the impact of staff on a business, Team building and motivation.
