Listed below are some of the tips that you can use to motivate your colleagues, revive their spirits and cause them to rededicate and recommit their efforts to a stalled project.
Remind them of the goal of the project
Often, human beings tend to forget the purposes of pursuing certain goals. When these intentions get lost, the driving force in them dissipates and the project stalls. Remind your colleagues why the organization chose to pursue the project and see them come back to livelihood.
Appreciating individuals for the contribution they have made to the success of a project is the key to awakening them back to service. In most instances, appreciating a person is a greater reward to them than money. Use a unique way to recognize your colleagues for the contributions they have brought to the firm since the commencement of the project.
Celebrate every success
Whenever progress has been noted, slight as it may be, be sure to talk about it and assure them that you are on the right track. Take glory in each step made towards achieving the goal the project was designed for. Give your colleagues a treat, say during a meal time to celebrate the achievement.
When people know that they will get a reward for a job well done, the reward will serve as a motivator. Give prizes to people whose contribution to the success of the project can be noted by everyone in the organization. Rewarding is also important because it creates healthy competition among the workers.
Create a team spirit
It is hard for a team that is divided against itself to achieve a goal. Organize for team building outings for the workers and allow them to bond amongst themselves. Through such activities, support and love for each other grows, and the team comes back to work on the project together. Handle disputes that are likely to arise wisely and avoid taking sides for the sake of the unity of the team.
The joy of undertaking a massive project is to see it successfully come to an end. However, the journey that the project takes is likely to be full of challenges. These problems should be adequately handled and used as stepping stones to higher levels. When the project seems to have come to a standstill and your colleagues look worn out and bored, motivating them is the key to awakening their spirit and taking their focus back to the project.
