Tip 5 - Train your staff!
The easiest way to demotivate people is to deny them skills, knowledge and experience. Make
sure there are plenty of opportunities for your staff to learn and practice new ideas.
Untrained employees = unhappy employees
Employees who feel unsupported and undervalued are unhappy. Investing in training is a great way to help your staff feel appreciated and supported. Not to mention it's a great way to increase productivity and revenue for your business.
Ever said to yourself 'We are just too busy to be investing in training at the moment"? - This is almost like saying "We are too hungry to eat"....What will happen to your business if you neglect to feed it?
Be sure to check in for the final installment next week, where we talk about motivation.
