Staff Incentive for Your Business
Time for a rally
Perhaps sports provides the best example of getting people to rally around a cause; your business is a cause. You take care of the many people who live in your area depending on your products and services, and it is the people working in your business depending on the business to provide an income for them.
In your business there should be sincere, vocal encouragement and confidence that each individual can perform the task you are asking them to do and what the business can accomplish because of the individual and group efforts. State it out loud for everyone to hear.
And my favorite? Its from Herb Brooks, coach of the US Hockey team in 1980.
"If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight, we stay with them. And we shut them down because we can! Tonight, WE are the greatest hockey team in the world".
We want to recognize A Carrot A Day by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton, whose book provides the basis for each month's incentive idea.
