As a leader, it is always a challenge to inspire and make employees happy. Well, it is easy to inspire and make employees satisfied. If you are fully engaged in what you are doing you lose track of time, and you feel energized and satisfied. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself:
Do you have a community of support at work?
If employees have a community of support that would take care of distraction and that their interests are covered, they will slip in a full concentration at work. You have to make them feel that you support them in everything they aspire at work and probably in life as well.
Do you link the work to the mission of the company?
Nothing can be demoralizing as doing something that is not really adding any value to the company. Make sure that your employees’ contributions are well appreciated, and that they are aware how important their work productivity or contribution is to the company.
Are you giving enough space for your people?
You need to give a figurative and literal space to your employees. Experiment and take note of your employees’ productivity with your office design. An open office workspace may not work for you as it is working well with other companies. Experiment and adopt the most office design that works for your company. You also need to give them the sense of responsibility in every task you assign to them, making them feel that they are the expert on that area, and that you depend on what they say and do. It will boost your employees’ moral and be more inspired to work better.
Are you watching workload closely?
Your employees are human beings, too; They are not machines or robots that could take everything. We all have certain limitations in everything. If you put so much work on them, they may become stressed out and just shut down. Pure work without play can also become tiring that could affect work productivity. Think something that would give them a reason to have fun at work. You can also schedule one of your regular meetings outside the office or maybe organize a sports day or a team-building day.
