Sometimes I wonder why some companies make it big and become money spinner reaching the Everest of success, whereas other competitors struggle to remain in the game. Same industry, same product, same services, still miles away from success.
Let’s take a step back and understand what a company is? Apart being an artificial person created by law, it is group of employers and employees, who work together to reach the common goal. United we stand, divided we fall.
A team of dedicated and motivated employees keep the temperature soaring with their exceptional performance and stand toe with toe during debacle. They don’t live under the shadow of company’s stature and held themselves accountable for their decisions.
What do they do different or what are the core skills and tools used by the managers to motivate their employees. What is that quality making them so loyal and accountable? Let’s throw the towel and reveal the truth:-
Assigning the suitable tasks
According to a research, most of the employees aren’t clear what exactly they are supposed to do. If they are, the tasks doesn’t sync with their strengths. They aren’t sure how their efforts are making monumental difference in the company progress. This disfranchises them from the company goals, leaving salary as the only source of motivation.
Assign your employees suitable tasks complimenting their strength, are meaningful and measurable. Once the employee clear understands the assigned tasks, he will be aware what is expected out of him.
Once the employee knows the assigned tasks, the next step is to show employees the resources available to help them finish the task effectively. Resources include equipment, people, process and mechanism that are available to them. The second step is making the employees comfortable to use the resources without any hassle.

Ask the employees to send report status and evaluate the performance once in a month. The employees already know the committed mistakes and rectification required next time. Your visit is just a reminder. This is the first chapter of leadership and Business Coaching laying mutual trust and admiration between the management and the employees.
