7 Ways to Inspire Your Team for Peak Performance

In order to achieve great results, you should be constantly thinking about how you can motivate and inspire your team. The ultimate throttle on the growth of a company is the people so keep raising their inspiration and motivation levels. This will ensure a happy energized team always delivering great output.

Here are some ideas to consider:

Set the example

Of course, as a leader it is your responsibility to set the example for your team to follow.  The way you treat everyone is the way your team will treat their direct reports. Attitude is contagious so as a leader you want to set an amazing example of optimism which can radiate throughout the organization. Set an example by leading from the heart, taking calculated risks, treating people well, showing impeccable manners and finally sharing credit with the team always.

Share your vision and set clear expectations

You can only motivate and inspire your team if they know what they are working towards. Make sure your employees are aware of your vision and what your ultimate goals are for the business. This encourages everyone to work together to achieve better results.

Recognize peak performance and effort

This needs to be done at a level where the recognition is seen by others. Everyone likes praise and recognition, and if a good performance is publicly honored, the person shows that individual effort is seen at a higher level. And everyone else sees that too.

Get people to share their ideas and creativity

If people help contribute to something, they are more likely to take ownership and be committed to its successful outcome. So, get input and ideas from people when you are wanting to improve.

Encourage teamwork

Encouraging and promoting teamwork boosts productivity because it makes employees feel less isolated and helps them to feel more engaged with their tasks. You can do this by regularly holding team-building activities and opportunities for your team members to bond and get to know one another.

Give employees the space they need to thrive

A micromanaging boss can quickly stifle creativity. By giving your employees space and autonomy, you clearly show that you trust them the get the work done in their own way. This can inspire individuals to find more efficient or streamlined ways of completing tasks or to discover gaps in their skillset or the department as they work.

Provide opportunities for growth and development

Team members feel more valuable when they are learning and growing. To motivate and inspire your team to achieve great results you should provide your employees with opportunities for growth and development.

These opportunities should be tailored specifically to suit the individual employee and can be in the form of further training, setting challenging targets, inviting an employee to shadow you, or spending your own time teaching and mentoring somebody. Focus on teaching your team transferable skills they could use in different positions and encourage them to set themselves learning goals.

Motivation is an essential part of any workplace and you should be constantly striving to make your employees feel motivated and inspired. If you do this, you’re sure to achieve the results that you need. In the end, your workforce can reach operational excellence.
