Let Them Enjoy Their Leave Of Absence

Make sure you let go of the nudge or habit if formed, to always involve team members who have decided to take out some time to rest off work. This helps them realize that you are particular about their health, and personal well being, above their ability to work and create profit for the team.

Verbalize Your Appreciation

Sometimes, all your team wants to hear is a “thank you” for times they went out of their way to make the team win, or for simply doing their job. Make it a habit to publicly affirm your team members, and also for them to do so to one another.

Give Them A Voice

Let each member of the team know that their opinions, choices and voice is appreciated. Evaluate their suggestions and contributions, no matter how it might seem and appreciate them for putting them forth. Study to know if the ideas are implementable and put them to action if so. Nothing gladdens a person more than knowing their ideas are being executed.

Give Mentorship

Monitor the growth and progress of your team by offering to mentor and guide them. This helps you to see the potentials in each one of them. But more, it helps them see it and know how to achieve it. Mentorship is one of the ways to prove your faith in your team and boost their confidence.
