The Water CoolerMy team is in a rut mentally. How can I motivate them to get back on track so that we can grow and succeed? Posted by Thomas Jackson2 Responses Favorite Share Bill Fan April 29th, 2016 In my time as a manager, I’ve found that a healthy sense of competitiveness often excites my team to get back on track for success. Consider hosting an employee challenge of sorts to stimulate them and incentivize them to achieve greater results. Log in to Reply Rhea Dawson February 7th, 2017 Have you addressed the issue with your team? Toss the ball to them and ask why they seem to be in a rut, what problems exist they think are obstacles and how the group can work together to get past them. Another option is a team-building event (small or large as budget allows) where you pose the challenge … how are we going to get to our desired result … and what are we doing to ourselves that’s keeping us from it?
