4 New Ways To Motivate Your Employees On Monday Morning by Orunsolu01(m): 5:02pm On Nov 14, 2016
Well if you are a part of those successful professionals who is always hopping outta bed with a gaze of your mind fixed at your Monday morning rituals so that you can get to your work place on time before anyone else, fine but not everyone is motivated as much as that. In fact, a handful amount of workers are not interested in getting to work early or even make meaningful

Disengaged employees is one of the reasons how negativity permeates through an organization and bring down the morale and productivity of employees. So, it definitely is in your interest to motivate your employees on Monday morning, so that they have a reason to bounce into office like you and be at their productive best.

Here are 5 essential tips that will teach you how to motivate employees, especially on Monday mornings…

TEAM WORK

Nothing uplifts the spirits more than working together as a team. Instead of getting your employees to head straight to their desk on Monday morning, assemble them together in a room and divide them randomly into two or three teams. Give each team something fun that can be accomplished only as a team. Of course, you would have to use your gray matter a bit to come up with tasks, but it will be worthwhile. Keep this team work activity short, for about 15 to 20 minutes. Let it be something physical that gets people moving, so that it helps getting rid of the weekend lethargy and chases away the blues.

DROP AN INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE



There is no doubt it is tough to beat the Monday morning blues and get your mind focused on work. A person may be in the office physically, but his / her mind may be reminiscing about the wonderful time they had over the weekend with family and friends. So, there is nothing like a good inspirational message that you send your employees the first thing on Monday morning to elevate their mood and make them happy about being at work. Choose a message that reinforces the vision of the organization and lets each employee know how each one’s contribution helps take the company a little closer to its goals.

HELP THEM PLAN AHEAD

On Friday afternoon or evening, get employees to take 15 minutes from their busy schedule to plan for the week ahead. It will help them create a road-map of what they need to get done by the following Friday. It can take a lot of pressure off employees, as they will be able to prioritize important tasks. With everything planned, they will know exactly what they have to do on Monday when they come into office, making them more relaxed and happy to be at work. This increases productivity and keeps the morale high.

TEAM LUNCH

Everyone invariably gets late on Monday and many employees may not have had time to have proper breakfast at home. So, one of the ways to show that your organization cares about its employees’ welfare is to let employees enjoy catered lunch. It is a great way to show your appreciation and for all employees to sit together and enjoy a happy meal. A meal with the team is always welcome and having it specifically on a Monday is something for employees to look forward to. It will motivate them to come in with a smile and be happy and productive at the workplace.
Remember, employees need motivation to give their best and with a bit of ingenuity you can help keep your team’ spirits soaring and looking forward to a great work week, week after week.

Nice one...
Meanwhile


I love this joke: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump go into a bakery shop. As soon as they enter the bakery, Trump steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket. He says to Hillary: “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t even see anything, and I don’t even need to lie. I will definitely win the election.” Hillary says to Donald: “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same 3 pastries without stealing or lying, and also prove that I am much clever than you!” Hillary goes to the owner of the bakery and says: “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick?” Intrigued, the owner accepts Hillary’s offer and gives her a pastry. Hillary swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives her another one. Then Hillary asks for a third pastry and eats that, too. By this time, the owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks: “What did you do with the pastries?” Hillary replies: “Look in Donald’s pocket!”

If u like go and bring motivational speakers, nobody is ready to listern to ur tricks on how to make good use of them.
just surprise them with a good news of increment on their salaries and then discuss with them about issues like;
1. off days
2. There won't be work on Tuesday.
3. There won't be product by next week due to scarcity, meaning office will not open by next week. And you will see ur employees very very excited, and motivated. That will make them(especially the men among them) to map their plans for the weekend.

These ideas are good if the company is making good profits only. If not, even the boss won't be happy.
