Here are some tips to encourage that growth.
How to Motivate your Team & Increase Productivity
The common societal conception that if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, you’ll be happy, is backwards. Instead, happiness leads to success. So the real question is: How can managers positively motivate their employees in order to increase happiness and productivity? Find out in this post.
Bringing Compassion into the Workplace
When we treat ourselves and others compassionately, we tend to come together in a collaborative manner that boosts the group as a whole. With this, deep relationships are formed, trust is established, and a willingness to collaborate on projects and shared visions is cultivated, which has a direct impact on a company’s bottom line.
The Benefits of Mindfulness in the Workplace
Bringing mindfulness to the workplace has the potential to decrease people’s stress and anxiety through heightened awareness, which in turn leads to improved performance. Also, perhaps most importantly from a leadership perspective, mindfulness encourages engagement. Learn how being fully present as a leader— and allowing your team to be fully in the moment — will reap rewards both personally and professionally.
The Importance of Listening as a Leader
If we can retrain ourselves to focus on the present moment and truly listen to our people, many issues in the workplace can be avoided and you can get to know your people and better understand their needs in order to make them happier.
