3 Ways to Effectively Rally the Troops
When organizations are struggling and morale is low, it falls on a leader’s shoulders to help keep employees’ chins up and focus on the future. Use these three tips to motivate employees during troubling times:
Go to them. Sure your schedule is packed but don’t invite employees to headquarters because it’s easiest for you. Visit them where they work. This signals that what they do matters.
Praise their efforts. No one tires of hearing they’re doing a good job when the praise is genuine. Explain how their output is significant to the organization’s long-term health.
Watch their backs. Employees often suffer first when things get tough — show them that the company supports them.
