1. Stepping up and leading by example
If you want to motivate your team you, the first thing you can do is to set an example for them.
One of the best quality of a leader is that he set an example for his team by performing a work by himself.
He does a particular work first by himself in best possible way so that a standard is set and his team is able to follow that standards.
Remember, A good leader is automatically followed by his team he doesn’t have to treat his team as slaves to make them do work.
So, if a leader is leading by example and setting standards for his team then this will act as a best source of motivation for his team.
2. Appreciating the work
A good leader will always appreciate there team at there good work and show them the right way if they are doing something wrong or making any mistakes.
Appreciation is one of the key factor that a leader can use for motivating his team, as emotion is one of the feeling which every human has in him so if you appreciate a person then he will definitely work as hard so that he can get appreciation by his leader on regular basis.
You can appreciate your team by following methods:-
- Rewarding them for there good work.
- Clapping for them in front of all.
- Providing incentives for there good work.
- And many other creative ways which you find best for your team.
So, in my opinion a person can work in better way if “he is given appreciation rather than criticism“.
3. Communicating regularly with your team
As a leader it is very important that you should remain in contact of your team on regular basis.
With this you will be able to understand your team in better way and this will allow your team to open up with you and they will be able share there thoughts and ideas with you.
With regular communication it will be easy for you as a leader to convey your goals and objectives to your team in best possible ways and it will be more easy for your team to understand your vision.
If you are a good communicator then your team will automatically like you and it will become easy for you to motivate you team as, if a leader is liked by his team then they gives there best towards the work that they have been assigned.

6. Be ready for helping them at any point
If you are giving you best to always help your team, you are giving your 100% efforts towards helping your team then your team will also give 100% towards achieving your goals.
They will start to see your goals as there own goals as this will act as a source of motivation for them.

And remember “a true leader is always ready to help his followers because leader are chosen by follower itself“.
7. Help them in developing there skills
You will always be a good leader if you are having a helping attitude inside you.
Helping your team in developing there skill will help them to become more skillful and better at work and this will help them to easily perform a work.
If you are helping in developing your team skills then your team will also get motivated and It will be you who will be the reason that they got motivated, as you helped them in developing there skills.
Developing your team skill will also help you as with this your team will be more productive and efficient and they will perform the work in best way possible.
8. Treat your team equally(don’t compare)
It is very important for you as a leader that you treat your team equally as this will motivate them to perform that work in team and it will cut off the chances of conflict happening within the team.
If one member of your team doesn’t perform a task in better way them don’t tell him his mistakes in front of everyone as this will embarrass him, he will lose his confidence and because of this he will get demotivated for next time.
So if any member of your team is not able to perform a work in a better way, then tell him his mistakes individually and try to provide solution to him as with this he will gain confidence in himself and he will be motivated to give his best for the next time.
“Don’t compare individual of you team with one another as everyone is different and better at some works from others“.
9. Creating enjoyable working environment

If you are able to create this type of environment then your team will be able to perform the work in better way as they won’t be afraid of performing mistake and they will feel free to share there thought and issue with you.
And it is very important for you as a leader that you have a proper knowledge about what is happening within your team because this will effect the outcome of the result in positive or negative ways.
So, Try to keep the environment light enough so that everyone can perform a work in better way.
