I always believed that bringing change is one of the key factors which develops people’s interest and keep them motivated. But I was surprised to see that how promoting another person in team can motivate others, specially where situation is worse and people are fed up. Bringing change can charge people up, but we have to see that what type of change is necessary. Sometimes a change can demoralize people, specially when people are already happy with something.
Another factor to keep your team motivated is to communicate with them and ask their problems, and try to solve it. Again, solving problem will bring change and your team will become more responsible, honest, and motivated.
