Motivate Your Team

By Direct Selling Women's Association
Posted Saturday, December 18, 2004


One simple word can benefit your team so much. It can help you encourage your team members’ commitment to business and keep them enthusiastic. It can help them envision their goals. In addition, when you share your belief in their ability to succeed, you will in turn help them build self-confidence. By exuding a positive expectation for their success, you will motivate them to overcome the challenges, which will inevitably come their way.

Here are some tips for motivating your team:

·Recognize success

·Celebrate achievement

·Shower your winners with praise and small rewards

·Offering your sincere congratulations through e-mails, phone calls, hand-written notes, greeting cards.

·Put them in the spotlight at team meetings. This will inspire them to accomplish even more! Praise and encouragement are two powerful tools for motivating others.

·Create leadership opportunities. Ask committed Consultants to assist you at trainings and meetings. By asking them to take part in these events gradually prepares them for even greater leadership responsibilities.

·Walk your talk. People follow leaders who go out of their way to lead by example. By living the attributes of a leader, you will encourage others to do the same.

·Above all – show your appreciation. Let every Consultant on your team know they are an important part of your "Business" family and that you are there to support and guide them.

As Napoleon Hill stated in his book Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success, "People will work harder for personal recognition and a word of commendation where it is deserved than they will for money alone."

This observation helps emphasize the power of recognition and praise your team needs for their achievements, big or small. It is a very strong motivational tool.

One of the greatest rewards of being in the Direct Sales industry is the feeling of community one has with fellow consultants. In fact, the bonds you form with customers, hostesses, and consultants often become lasting and rewarding friendships that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.

Set a goal to cultivate this same feeling of family among your own team of Consultants through the regular gatherings, frequent communication and the most important ingredient…love.
