Team Motivation

Here are some practical ways to increase and maintain a good morale and high motivation. To motivate a team, trust has to be established. Firstly, hire the right people! You can hire for attitude and teach for skill. Get the right people on the bus and let the wrong people off. Strive for an as transparent, non-hierarchical structure as possible, give ample of recognition and praise (praise in public, exhort in private). Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. Lead the troops from the front and show the way by your personal example.
