Are you excited about what you do? We certainly hope so! While you are probably the biggest ambassador of your business, it's important to remember that tough times and difficult project do happen. When the lull comes, it can seriously impact the outlook of your company if you're not careful. Enthusiasm is easy when things are going great, but it's imperative you keep that high going even when times are slow.
Here are a few reasons enthusiasm should become a part of your company culture:
The End Is Near-ish.
The end is always just around the corner. You have a few development disasters to overcome, and there are some budgetary hurdles you will have to jump. Marketing and sales can't come to terms with finance. But, the end is near.
In truth, you're never going to find the finish line if you're focused on the fickle details and frustrations that tie down each project. Instead, it's important to continually re-focus your team and remind them the end is near. Everything they are doing is helping to draw an end to the story, and without them, too many chapters would be missing to complete the story.
Your team is important. Everyone's contribution matters. And they need to be reminded of this from time to time to keep morale up. The higher the weeds grow, the harder it can be to see the beautiful landscape on the horizon, so it's up to you to find reminders that can boost your staff's confidence and encourage them to keep going.
Something Good Happened Today.
In the midst of challenges, there's always a triumph. Check in with your team by asking what good things happened to them today (or yesterday.) When people are asked to focus on something positive that happened in their lives, they are more likely to translate that enthusiasm to the workplace (especially when they are focusing on it at work.)
Begin each team meeting by going around the table and having your team members talk about something great that happened to them recently. It doesn't have to be related to your project; it doesn't even have to be related to work. The intrinsic happiness you create with your team will undoubtedly translate to your projects and your customers will notice the difference.
Enthusiasm Exudes Confidence.Confident employees create successful projects, but they can also impede the flow of communication if they become overly confident.
Any great leader will likely acknowledge the importance of confidence in the workplace, but only the wisest of managers understands the role enthusiasm plays when building an entire team's confidence.
Enthusiasm is an enthralling quality, which encompasses your customers, brand and company. Creativity is born from enthusiasm, and in a fluid environment where ideas are allowed to be free, amazing outcomes can be realized.
