“Doing your work as unto the Lord…” how to turn a church buzz word into a successful mindset.

TODAY our conversation is centered around the #1 thing I have done in my life as far as growing a business and work. Our first caller asks, 

“Professionally, how do I get a game plan to go to the next level and become a top performer in my field, and also be able to spot business opportunities.”

Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  • Doing your work as unto the Lord: how to turn this from a church “buzz word” into a successful mindset
  • The one factor that overrides a growth mindset, financial planning, and diversification
  • The big “difference maker” between career fulfillment and failed events
  • Where society’s concept of “hustle” is greatly lacking

Then we dive into setting culture:

  • How to motivate team members to complete tasks
  • How to successfully bring on new hires (to get work done you need them to get)
  • You have to force the culture that you want, or other people will force it for you.

It’s important to understand why you do what you do. You must have vision to see the direction you’re going. But what do you do after you breakthrough and see it, and find yourself in the same job, with the same people…? Today’s podcast guest called in and shared:

Leading up to that point I had so much frustration. I hated my job. I didn’t know where I was going in life, I didn’t know my purpose. I wasn’t happy at all, I had a desire to change drastically...”

Here’s what you will learn as we walk through his questions:

  • The next steps after a breakthrough or personal discovery, to make it stick
  • How to find a community where you can thrive
  • How to do your work as unto the Lord
  • What to do when you feel isolated as an entrepreneur or employee
  • Plus so much more…

Let’s dive in.

4 Ways To Motivate Team Members

March 19, 2012 | By | 61 Comments">61 Comments

How do you motivate team members is always a question asked by good leaders. Leaders who care. The inverse of that is leaders who don’t care…don’t motivate. Their belief is team members get a paycheck, that should be motivation enough.

Having taught and coached thousands of leaders and entrepreneurs, I understand this line of thinking, but it will only get you the productivity the team member thinks they are getting paid for. It’s possible their opinion and yours differ.

At our EntreLeadership 1 Day event in Orlando, we answered some of the questions we received on Facebook. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get to all of them. Therefore I pulled one of the unanswered questions from Celeste Owens to discuss with you here:

I am a practice manager for a wonderful and generous employer! How do you keep employee’s motivated besides throwing more money at them? How do you get employee’s to realize how fortunate/blessed we are?

This is a great question with many answers. Here are just a few:

  • RecognitionThe most important part of motivation is understanding that people will duplicate what they are rewarded for. If I see you genuinely complimenting me on something I’ve done well, I’ll keep doing it in hopes to get another compliment. And while telling me is amazing, recognizing me in front of my peers, or better yet my family, goes a very long way in motivating me.
  • Vision Casting – Team members need to be motivated with vision and direction. If I have no clue where I’m going, I get in a rut. As I begin to see that there’s something exciting on the horizon, I become more inspired to keep working towards it. This is an ongoing process, by the way. Recast vision every 21 days or the vision is dying.
  • Big Picture – It’s considerably easier for an entrepreneur to be more motivated than a team member. Entrepreneurs have the risk/reward thing going on of growing a business that belongs to them. Team members, not so much. One of the biggest motivators is working for something that is bigger than me. Don’t let a car mechanic think that all they do is turn a wrench. Let them know they have the opportunity to change the life of someone who is currently not happy. Make sure customer service reps understand how they are bettering lives by helping them with their problems.
  • Reminders – Some team members also need to be remind of just how good they have it. It is perfectly fine to share with the team what separates your company from the rest. However, if you do the other motivators correctly, they will come to realize how fortunate they are on their own. Understand that it is a process that will take some time, sooooo keep telling them until they get it.

These are just a few ways of getting and keeping team members motivated. Add to the mix the things that would have motivated you when you were in their shoes.

Question: What ways do you motivate your team besides just compensation?
