There are many reasons a tech team might become demotivated: heavy workloads, tight deadlines, frustrating bugs and issues, or even the “repetitive” work of keeping internal systems up and running. After long hours of work, even new projects and releases that once elicited excitement can start to lose their appeal.
When a tech leader spots signs of low morale and demotivation, they owe it to their team members, their customers and the work itself to help rekindle the lost enthusiasm. From reminding the team of their impact on colleagues and customers to letting them set aside work and connect on a personal level, there are many ways a tech leader can reenergize team members who have lost their “spark.” 16 members of Forbes Technology Council share their favorite tips and strategies for doing just that.
Find out what Chris Strahorn, Executive Vice President, Healthcare and Insurance, Accolite Digital has to say:
Hold One-To-One And Team Discussions
Reenergizing a team has to start with understanding the root cause of their demotivation. One-to-one and team discussions help to get problems out in the open and allow people to identify the factors that contribute to demotivation for themselves as individuals. That can then serve as a basis to engage the team in how to solve those problems. - Chris Strahorn, Accolite Digital.
