If you have an open, honest and trustworthy attitude employees will be more likely to trust your judgement. Things like posture, positive thoughts and mindfulness have big impacts on how you are perceived. Make sure you give a good impression.
Whether things are going great or not, it is important to stay positive as employees look up to you. If they see negativity, they will start worrying and their focus will be lessened. Positive reinforcement can go a far along the way of direction when there is uncertainty. Focus more on what employees did right and teach them how if they aren’t. if both you and your employees share a positive mindset and envision a positive outcome then it’s much easier to achieve. If someone makes a lot of progress toward the goal, use it as a source of motivation.
Be open and honest.
Even in a tough economy, high-potential employees have other opportunities,” according to Douglas Klein, president of Sirota Survey Intelligence. If employees are worried about their future, they will have a harder time to focus on work. Try putting in more effort and resources in training and development or give them new projects that can help growth. Employees can be very understanding when times are tough in regards to pay cuts or overtime. Be sure to word it carefully as to not scare them off even quicker. Be open and honest with them, don’t beat around the bush.
Posture and Pose.
Bad posture can affect your motivation. If you slump over constantly you will look tired and feel much quicker too. But if you are upright and more straightened up you will have less sore spots from muscles thus motivation will be better. If you like you are in charge and know what you’re doing, employees and customers will respect you much more.
Being and promoting mindful.
Take a bit of time out of your day and just calm your mind, it will help you stay focused on one task much easier, especially if things are busy and feel like everything is coming in at once.
