A great way to achieve success is to inspire. If your employees aren’t inspired, it will be a lot harder for them to achieve greatness. Here are three ways you can inspire your employees…
Share your purpose: Sometimes your purpose can get lost among your day-to-day responsibilities. Remember to periodically remind your employees of the bigger picture. You may get tired of processing loan applications, but you’re helping a family buy their first home. Everyone in the company has a role that is important to the credit union’s success. Remind your employees of the ways they help members’ dreams come true.
Show your appreciation: Your employees are what makes your company successful. Praise your employees when they deserve it, and encourage those who are making a great effort to be successful. Help them understand how their success positively impacts the credit union. If you’re a champion for your employees, they will be a champion for you.
Applaud innovation: No one knows your members better than your employees. If you want to be successful, you need to allow your employees to take what they’ve seen and heard from your members and use that information to come up with innovative solutions that will help improve their lives. By relying on your team, you’re giving them the opportunity to improve the business and their careers.
