Motivating your team isn't about one off actions. Its about how you act all the time. It starts with having the right mind-set. For example, rather than having an "I'm in charge and I'm looking out for you doing things wrong" outlook.
If you have a "We are a team and how can I help my team perform best" outlook, the way you act will significantly differ. Your team members are more likely to respond positively to a "How can I help" attitude as opposed to "You've done that wrong" They are therefore more likely to be motivated to making a positive change.2. What motivates your team?
We are all different, which is why motivating your team can be a challenge. Some people will be motivated by reward, others by recognition and others by their own achievement.
Talk to your team. Understand what motivates them. Tailor your approach to the individual. For example, if you have a team member who is interested in promotion and you need to delegate something they may find difficult. Motivate them by explaining that it will increase their skill set and be great for their development, which is why you chose them specifically to do the job as you know they will do it well.3. Record team motivations
What motivates your team? Record motivations against each team member: - Free text box or drop down?

Talk to your team! Don't lock yourself away all the time. Be approachable. Be firm when you need to be, but fair all the time. Treat people in the way you wish to be treated.5. Give praise when deserved
If some one has done a good job, tell them. A well done or thank you can go a very long way. Over 75% of people we surveyed felt they would work harder if they were better recognised…6. Celebrate success
Share goals and targets with the team and encourage healthy competition. Then celebrate success. That can be done in many ways: You buy the coffees, team lunch from department budget, have a team meeting and thank everyone for their hard work. Make the celebration or reward relevant to the achievement!7. Build trust
If you can build trust with your team, they will be right behind you. All great relationships are built on trust. Explain to your team that you trust them. That a great team needs to trust each other. If you make promises, keep them. Explain that the team must be honest and do what they say to keep your trust. Regular communication and fairness are they key to building trust.
The Zero inbox method.
1. Only look at emails morning, lunchtime and end of work. Can the app do reminder? Turn off all notifications so you don’t get interrupted.
2. If an email can be dealt with in less than 2 minutes – do it. If someone else should be auctioning, then delegate to them. If it needs longer than 2 minutes, then either start a reply to be completed later (and store in ‘drafts) or move to a specific time in your calendar.
3. Similarly, if you could reply but you need a bit of information, then start a reply and close it so its stored as a draft.
4. Aim at having zero items in your email inbox.
5. Delete everything over 2 weeks old. If you absolutely need to keep it for info then file it in your normal filing system somewhere. They’ll still be in ‘deleted’ folder which can be searched.
6. Delete any messages that are of no interest, from unknown senders, for info and you’ve read them, newsletters you haven’t got time to read, out of office messages or anything else useless.
7. Delete any messages that have the same subject – except the most recent. This will have the ‘email trail’ so you done need all of them. or any messages that
8. Deal with meeting appointments (which should then be deleted).
9. If an email is to you as cc then read it and delete. Keep inbox at zero!
10. Before sending an email, think if its better (and faster) to phone, meet, or message and only send to people who need to do something. Cc if they need it just for information.
You should always try to have a supportive outlook. How can you help?
2. Find a suitable venue
Ensure it is available
Ensure all attendees know how to get there
3. Gather Evidence
You must be able to speak objectively. Try and gather examples of what has been done or not done. Deal in fact or balance of probability - i.e. if 4 people said something happened and 1 person said it didn't, the balance of probability is that it did happen.During the review
5. Explain reason for the meeting – Poor performance

7. Think about the solution
You do not have to make a decision there and then. You may need to think or speak to others. Don't feel you must make a quick or rash decision. You can simply agree an action to go back to them with an answer. Make sure you do though!
