Being ready to perform is the basis for all action
The M in D.R.E.A.M. Formula® stands for Motivation – which is first and foremost a leader’s willingness to perform. This is the bedrock of his position, regardless of personal sensitivities. A leader is a role model.
A leader must also ensure that employees discover their own drive for their deeds. All the better when combined with cheerfulness, humor and an inviting work environment. This has nothing to with making a spectacle of yourself. Cheerleading, juggling colorful balls and walking on hot coals is TV or theater entertainment, not leadership.
As a leader, the best way to motivate your employees is to let them take part in decision-making processes, let them be party to your vision. Praise, recognition and regular, two-way communication are integral factors, as well.
