How to be a great motivator The best resources you will ever have in a business are the people who work for you or with you. These people need to be treated with respect and given praise when they do well. We all know that when someone starts a new job they more than likely to be really driven to do well. Over time that drive may start to falter if you don't mix it up and make it interesting. So change stuff around and try new things while also sticking to the things that work. To do that simple, listen to your employee's or co-workers. Sometimes being a great motivator is just listening to what others have to say. This in return gets people involved. It's much easier for someone to stand behind a company decision if they are involved with the process. Cheers!
