The Young Entrepreneur Council has some great ideas on motivating your employees and improving workplace morale. One area they have great thoughts is in relation to giving authentic feedback.
- Acknowledge progress: Recognizing when your team has reached
significant milestones will undoubtedly keep individuals performing at
their best. Acknowledgment not only builds confidence in struggling
students but also signals to team members that you notice and appreciate
their hard work.
- Give meaningful praise: Don’t offer insincere praise just
for the sake of encouragement. You should, however, praise individuals
for devoting extra care to a project. Students and adults sense when
someone is genuine. Authenticity strengthens the relationship between
you and your team.
- Reward accomplishments: Reward hard work to show your team
members you value them and appreciate their effort. This can include
monetary rewards, time off, or special recognition. Note that
this process is different from simply throwing money at unmotivated team
members — you’re recognizing behavior you want to continue.
