MOTIVATE the people you work with

Here’s a great way to remember some key success factors to keep in mind when motivating others:

M – Manifest confidence when delegating (if you believe they can, so will they)

O – Open communication (Can you say transparency?)

T – Tolerance for failure (Success is often based on learning how NOT to do it)

I – Involve others (We’re in this together)

V – Value efforts and recognize good performance (Can you say “Thanks”?)

A – Align business objectives to individuals’ objectives (Are we on the same page?)

T – Trust your team and reciprocate by being trustworthy (Critical to motivation success)

E – Empower your team (Don’t micromanage!)
