101 Ways to Motivate, Energize and Inspire Your Team

101 Ways to Motivate, Energize and Inspire Your Team


Here is a long list of effective and simple incentives for your team.

At the conclusion of an motive program, it is important to estimate how successful it was. Did you get the results you wanted? One of the best ways to estimate the programs effectiveness, besides considering your own observations, is to get feedback from the reps and administrators involved. You want to be sure that your directions were communicated clearly and at the right intervals, that the rewards were alluring and sparked interest and excursion, that your team members felt supported and prepared to take on the challenges being presented, that the program boosted morale, team effort, energy and creativity, etc.

What were the weaknesses, if any? Did the program meet or fall short of participants expectations? And of course, you must consider the bottom line impact on sales. Another important thing that cannot be overlooked is whether there may have been any outside influence that you did not have any control over. For example, has the industry experienced an increase in pricing? Was the product or service new, or has there been longstanding consumer awareness and recognition of it? Have there been any fluctuations in the companys marketing campaigns? All of these questions can basically be broken down into different areas, such as goals, budget or administration. In each area, clarify what worked and what didnt so you have concrete information to help you develop your next motive program.
