Identify Best Leverage for Your Team
Identify the best leverage for your team. We all have different forms of leverage that we respond to and we all respond differently. You really want to connect your team to the leverage that works best for them.
When to use
Always understand what motivates your team and the individual team members, so you can use this as leverage to help your team meet the desired outcome.
Everyone is motivated by different things. Really work with your team members to understand the best leverage to use to get them excited about meeting the desired outcome.
- Move Towards – These are the people on your team that their biggest motivating factor is reward. The leverage here could be a pay raise or a promotion or a leadership role. These are the things that people want to move towards.
- Move Away From – Some people are more motivated by moving away from consequences. The leverage here could be if you don’t hit the goal you will get fired, a pay cut or demoted. It is the fear that motivates them.
You have the same goal in place, but two totally different ways to drive people to meet the goal. You must decide which one works best for your team and for your individual team members.
Go to the motivational factors from the earlier videos and find out what already motivates your team members. Implement the motivational strategy to implement leverage. Now that you know what the best leverage is for your team, you can implement the strategy and move them forward with that motivation.
