People have always been the main resource of each company. To achieve the desired result you need to know how to motivate your team effectively. Inspiring supervisory style helps to create and maintain the spirit of enthusiasm among workers. The process of team motivating can be compared to creating a sculpture. To get a consummate shape the artist should clearly understand the structure of the material and be able to see the inner potential it contains. When it comes to inspiring people, communicating with your staff can be a very powerful tool.

Don't Make People Feel Average

I was approached by an employee from another division in my compnay yesterday.  They wanted talk as they were extremely downheartened as a result of a less than motivational appraisal they had received.  I could understand why they felt as they did. 

It reminded of a presentation by Allan Leighton (ex Chairman of British Post and current Chairman of Pace Technology) to the Leaders in London on the subject of appraisals and leadership.   I think this is brillant and the message an extremely powerful one.

Hope you enjoy it as well.
