4 Effective ways to Boost Team Morale
Have you wondered why there are teams out there with so high a morale, enthusiasm and even performance which outshines so distinct and even positively infectious to every member of the team but not sure why and how to incorporate this for your own team?
Below are effective ideas that could possibly be what your team need to have that same or even better team morale and culture.
1. Set Realistic Goals
You may have come across many motivational quotes such as aim high and dream high but setting your goal unrealistically high is actually detrimental to team’s morale as the likelihood of reaching the goal is low.
Realistic goals are small steps that pace and pave your way towards your ultimate goals, which may even eventually help you reach the originally deemed unrealistic end goal that you desire your team to reach. Just note that these realistic goals should be achievable and can be completed with the current capabilities of your team.
Since realistic goals are more manageable, they can lead your team to achieve more accomplishments and progress, which could give the team higher sense of achievement, enhancing the team’s overall motivation, productivity and morale.
Due to hecticness, time to encourage and support one another may be neglected as we have to focus on our work. However, if you look at the bigger picture, encouragements are nutrition to team’s morale.
A team culture that cultivates care, support and camaraderie will more likely to make people become more understanding of one another’s differences and mistakes, be more helpful of one another which can significantly benefit the team morale and performance.
One can give encouragements in many ways and it doesn’t have to be something grand or expensive. Encouragements can be felt or appreciated through small gifts for each other’s help, words of encouragements when needed, or even by giving time to listen and understand each other’s challenges.
These little things are important moral support for the team’s journey together.
Rewards are also a very effective way to spur the team’s morale in working towards a specific goal, especially if the reward upon reaching the goal is attractive to them.
This not only motivates the team to work harder towards the goal but also helps the team to gain more accomplishments along the way for the team.
Just do take note that the rewards should not lose the team culture you want the team to have. For example, for teams that priorities team unity, encouraging competition among team members to get the reward may not be how you want to set the method towards getting the rewards. Other examples of rewards could be giving your team vacation, days off after completing a major project or monetary rewards like team bonus.
4. Team Building Workshops
Healthy and good working relationships can tie closely to the team’s morale and also the team’s overall job satisfaction and performance.
Furthermore, by itself, workshops can help the team members learn many active and passive skills other than building better relationships within the team.
That is also one of the reasons why many big and small companies have already incorporated and are still attending team building events to obtain such useful benefits.
Morale are part of the complex human emotions and motivators that drive us to work better and even harder at work. However, it requires time and effort to foster and cannot be rushed to gain good results.
Therefore, perseverance and consistency in trying out the few ideas above, incorporating them into your company culture and intentionally nurture them, you will definitely see positive boost in team’s morale.
