It's Not About The Money! (3)

What Next
This edition of TeamTips is concerned with the motivational side of Team Leadership. There are three things you can do if you’re interested in finding out more about this:

1. Read a Book
We recommend “The Harvard Business Review on Motivating People”, by HBR Paperbacks. This is a great collection of articles, including Frederick Hertzberg’s 1968 classic, “One More Time: How Do You Motivate Employees?”. It’s available from the Sevenrings book shop at in the “Management Books” section.

2. Read Our In-Depth Management Briefing Paper on team management.
We publish a series of more detailed papers - just visit and click on the ‘free stuff’ button.

3. Call Sevenrings
We’ve helped dozens of individuals and organisations improve their performance through improving team motivation, and we’d be happy to talk to you about your particular situation at no initial charge.
We specialise in helping people to get better results by changing the way they work. We can provide training from 1/2 day taster sessions focusing on just one aspect of the Team leader’s role, up to comprehensive programmes over several months.

Our phone number is 0191 2522 335.

    How do you try and tell adults who hate authority that everything you do is for their benefit and the companies at the same time. I run a section of 21 people and another one sometimes consisting of 6 people. I receive more criticism from the team of 6. This is due to the other teamleader trying to be friends with everyone. When I took this role I wasn't there to make friends, but everybody gets my respect. Teamleaders should know that no matter what you do, your the first person to be bitched about, go home and take the knifes out of the back, but if management are congratulating you for a job well done, that's something to be proud of.
