The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors, and it’s finally football season. So how can you carry the team spirit into your office? Here are 4 ways to be the MVP of your office!
- Do your job. Ok, seems obvious, right? A team is only as strong as the weakest link. Work hard and go above and beyond. Offer to help out a teammate struggling with their workload.
- Every team needs a cheerleader! Have a good attitude. Boost morale by maintaining a positive outlook. According to the October edition of Shape magazine, the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that employees experience a 39% boost in work motivation after focusing on what they like about their job. Mentally list a couple perks you love – or share them with your colleagues to keep the positivity going.
- Speaking of team morale….bring in coffee or treats for your team. I like to pick up a jug of coffee or bake muffins to share. Especially if you’ve been working long, hard hours – sugar and caffeine always do the trick.
- Set goals and stick to them. Long term goals keep you motivated through your daily workload. Be sure to set up smaller tasks that lead you to the big prize. Rome wasn’t built in a day – but part of Rome was built every day.
