"I motivate my fellow team members by coming to work with an exceptional attitude every day. I won't allow anyone's bad mood to let me down. That influence alone has helped many of my coworkers get through their day on a more positive note."
"I motivate others by complimenting their work, asking them their opinion, and making them feel like a valued part of the team."
"I motivate my team by showing them the difference that their work makes. If one of my team members has made a customer happy, I share that feedback with the team. If someone is performing above all the rest, I will point it out. Recognition is a well-received motivation factor with my team."
"My team members and I are motivated by creative breakthroughs which happen when we are not tied to an idea or rigorous process. We motivate each other by actively participating in brainstorms and whiteboard sessions, never shutting down an idea, rather building upon it."
"I motivate my team members through kind words. If someone lost a sale or isn't having the best week, I will remind them of a day when they completely kicked butt. Words like that will often give someone the energy they need to succeed. I know it works for me!"
"My team members and I motivate each other through our friendly competition! We all love a bit of fire under us to get going and knowing that someone else is succeeding, makes the rest of us want to succeed too! We send kudos emails when a big sale is closed and help others with negotiations when they have a tough client to close."

"Positive reinforcement is my favorite way of motivating others. I try to find out at least one great thing about each person in my class and encourage them on that particular positive trait. I can find out this information by meeting with the employee's direct manager to get a sense of which skills are strong, and which skills need further development. Seeing the good in others is a safe way to help them feel comfortable and to build trust. It's also important that I understand their goals so that they have a target in mind when we begin our training. I enjoy encouraging others by reminding them of their strengths and their goals. It can be easy to get discouraged when you're working in a demanding, stressful work environment. I keep my trainees engaged and focused by praising their good work."
"I would meet with my team on a regular basis to ensure they are meeting all expectations, and that they are satisfied with the duties they have to perform. I would also occasionally reward them by using incentives, e.g., monetary incentives and/or the opportunity to move up the ladder by acquiring management skills."
"I motivate team members by asking them how they are doing and if they need help with anything. I think this allows people to feel like someone cares about them and makes them feel more like part of a team if another member is willing to help them with something they are struggling with to accomplish individually."
It's very important to show that you care about others, and it seems you know exactly how to motivate anyone who needs a little bit of encouragement. Nicely done!

"Providing positive feedback is extremely motivating. When the opportunity presents itself, I will take this to the next level by sending an email to that person and coping with my boss, HR, and our general manager on the email for them to see the good work as well."
Great! It's nice that you are so considerate. Try offering up a quick example of a time when you recently gave someone public accolades for a job well done.
