Here are a few ideas to motivate your staff to get the best effort, thinking and performance from them:
1. Share inspiring content. When you find a great article or a powerful video online, create a culture of sharing content. You can either use the tried-and-true method of email to share a link to a great piece of content, or take the more “social” approach of creating a destination (such as a private group on Facebook) where employees can watch or read inspiring content.
2. Use co-creation to seek new ideas. Sometimes the biggest barrier to sparking innovation is routine. When employees are challenged to think beyond their roles and share new ideas, it can inspire them to think bigger.
