How is your business doing? Is it living up to the expectations of your original business plan? It is not uncommon for a business to hit the occasional “snag.” Even a terrific staff could find themselves stuck in a rut. If you’re in need of productivity boost, then you might want to put some of these plans into action:
There are some bosses that believe the best incentive if a weekly paycheck. There might be some truth to that but your staff would appreciate a bit more in terms of motivation. Once you set goals, there is no reason why you can’t incentivize those goals. This doesn’t mean giving out a jet ski every week but something as simple as buying the office lunch on Friday if that hit the goals can get them fired up to perform and help each other.
Let Them Know You Trust Them
When was the last time your told your staff that you trust them? Just saying the words, “I trust you with this assignment” can go a long way towards empowering those workers. Everyone needs encouragement.
Set Realistic Goals
Telling the staff on Monday that they need to generate a million dollars in sales by Friday might not be the most realistic of goals. As a result, you’re essentially setting them up for failure. That is going to drive a spike into whatever productivity you had going. Instead, set achievable goals. Once those goes are made, you can move onto the next batch. Accomplishing goals sets up for future achievements.
A boss needs to be part “cheerleader.” You need to radiate positivity. It means getting out into the office and circulating among the staff to check in on their progress. If your staff sees your positive attitude, they’ll reflect it right back.
Provide a Productive Workspace
Productivity is tied to the workplace environment. Works who toil away in a drab office don’t tend to be very productive.
