Book Site: Motivate Your Team in 30 Days
How to Motivate Your Team in 30 Days is the ideal book for aspiring or current leaders who are looking for a practical guide to motivating their team members to be top performers. The book provides a step-by-step process with daily workday, or weekday, activities, first for the team leader and then as a facilitator for the team members. It applies to teams of all sizes.
The first and most crucial lesson? You can’t actually motivate anyone to do anything – you must create an environment in which people motivate themselves.
It starts with leaders learning how to motivate themselves before others. Once they understand themselves better, they are able to apply the same techniques with their team.
It’s the leaders’ job to facilitate things, to make things easier for other people so they in turn come up with the answers, answers that they own; they’re committed to the solution; they implement the solution.
And that’s really the key. Leaders must create working environments that inspire and empower their teams to allow them to fulfill their full potential.
As the book demonstrates, self-motivation and team motivation are the foundations to success. A motivated and engaged environment and team attracts and retains top performers, resulting in better performance, increased productivity and bottom line measurable results.
Or as author Bob Urichuck says, “Leadership is about people. Take care of your people and your people will take care of your bottom line.”
