First let me explain what \u201cmotivational offer\u201d even means. The motivational officer (aka celebration officer) is always the one who looks out for a tonne of reasons to celebrate, like each achievement and milestone. But there\u2019s more to it than just a reason for a cold beer \u2013 as Uncle Ben would say, \u201cwith great power comes great responsibility!\u201d\r\n\r\nTo help lighten the load of that responsibility, below I\u2019ve listed 6 easy steps to help you become an awesome motivational officer.\r\n\r\n1. One should take out some time to know his team:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo motivate your people you should know what they like and what they don\u2019t! Try understanding their feelings and act accordingly. For example, our team loves cricket, so we decided to go to the beach and play cricket and we did the same thing for yoga as well!\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n2. Appreciation or gifts are strong motivators:\r\n\r\nAs you know your team members better, you can reward them with what they like! Not just with material gifts, but small celebrations of their achievements work well. This helps them feel motivated. My personal favourite is to surprise them with handmade gifts, like a letter or video.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n3. Unite the team towards a common goal and make the progress visible:\r\n\r\nOne thing that worked for us in achieving our financial goal last year was having a live counter for our revenue. We also added a bell in our office so each time we cracked a deal, our teammate would go and ring the bell and we would make some noise!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n4. Be the change you want to inspire:\r\n\r\nOnce you are a motivational officer, make sure you achieve your goals and model the way for others. If you don\u2019t take your goals and personal progress seriously neither will they.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n5. Create shared memories:\r\n\r\nCreating opportunities for your team to make memories together will help them bond and perform better. New experiences will be fresher in their minds and the shared experiences will create a common platform for everyone to come together. Instead of opting for team dinners that can get repetitive (and expensive), consider taking the team to a cooking class. Everyone gets to learn something new in a fun environment, and you\u2019re forming memories together.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n6. Team buy-in:\r\n\r\nI\u2019ve mentioned many tips for becoming an awesome celebration or motivation officer, but it's not possible without your team members agreeing with what you say. So, to get everyone\u2019s buy in, a brainstorming session is great place to begin. When ideas come from everyone there is a greater sense of ownership from the whole team.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAnd with this, I am off to celebrate my 1st blog!
