As a team leader have you ever felt the need to encourage your team member for a better result? Working together with a certain group of people can be quite challenging but the willingness to make success by every member of the group is what makes it better but if the leader is only concern about the fruitfulness of the work and less concern about the satisfaction of every member the work might end up as a failure.

Every time you find your self as a leader in a particular group work, you need to understand that you have to put extra effort because the success of the work all depends on your attitude towards your team member. I am quite sure you need them more for the success. Are you a team leader and have you wonder how you can encourage your team members? Here are few things which can be of help.

Make sure the working environment is conducive: Endeavor to be sure that your working environment is very suitable for them. When worker have a conducive and happy environment they will be very happy to work. The working environment really matters when you are working with a team member. The ability to get a productive work depends on how happy the environment is.

Appreciate their effort: Appreciate their effort often, tell them how pleasing the outcome of their work is, let them understand that they can do better if their work is lacking behind. Show more faith in their abilities and trust me they will want to do better in order to make you proud.

Pay them their worth: Don’t be stingy with their salary, pay them their worth. If they are really working hard pay them according to that and trust me they will be very happy to work really hard next time.

Set up the achievable goals: Don’t give them task that you know are not attainable, give them a very achievable goal and when they know they can work towards your target they will be very happy to work for you. You don’t want them to work away their strength. Don’t see your team member as a tool to over use. Use them with care and love and they will be happy to work with you all over again.

Word of encouragement: Be very encouraging, when they do things that makes you happy appreciate and also encourage them to do better.

Be very open with them: While working with them be very open, don’t be hard on them. Let them see you as a very interactive person and they will be very happy to work along with you. You don’t want team member to feel it is hard to work with you. Working with a hard team member can be quite challenging and it is hard to attain success that way.

Give them opportunity to share their ideas: Listen to their advice, when they tell you things that will help the team grow, listen to them and let them feel that their opinion is not taken for granted. Work towards using their advice and don’t always feel you are the only one that can give orders and advice.
