Here are 7 things to avoid demotivation CEO or leader that can be avoided are:

Now is the time we tried to introspective, watching whether we are indeed motivate or demotivate employees. Here are a number of ‘symptoms’ that looks and often other people (employees) interpreted as a demotivating thing. When a leader / entrepreneur who listen input pitched below of the team members, it was time to make amends:

1. “We do not know what is important to you.”

You as a leader sometimes do this by changing the decision of a problem several times a day, or by making them confused with the decisions that contradict each other. The solution? Keep your team know your priorities. Give them certainty. If you as a leader is difficult to guess, you’re just going to make them psychologically and mentally exhausted. It is classified as a demotivation.

2. “You never explain why the actions you do.”

Just because you are leaders, business owners there, does not mean you are completely freed from the obligation to explain your actions. The people in your business you observe carefully, but they can not see what is in your mind. Referrals are not specific tends to confuse and less effective. Saying “fix it next time” or “do better for the next” not at all helpful.

These words provide less motivation and are often interpreted as “lip service”.

3. “You prefer to hire people who origin obey all commands.”

When you choose a more docile workers, you sometimes forget to provide sanctions for violators. Try to provide penalties for those who violate the rules. The people who work for you may appreciate the opportunity you gave to work in your business in the future as it is now difficult to find a job but they will not be motivated by any risk or wading competition filled with mines.

4. “You make demands of the employees threatened with consequences”.

It may be as simple as hold opportunities and benefits but people have to understand that you do not mess around about imposing sanctions for mistakes. Even a veiled threat demands can change demotivating but most supervisors often give threats.

5. “Meeting of the only teams to convey the decisions you’ve made.”

Many people are led by authoritarian. In the meeting they only deliver a decision that has been taken, without involving the people around him for contributing to the suggestions for that decision. It’s better if you invite all members of the team and make sure they give their views and listen to your views solemnly.

6. “You agree with the target set but then suddenly change it.”

Once you listen to the latest sales projections, you can not resist the urge to add a new target to make the staff more motivated. And that makes them shock, less burdened and can do their job wholeheartedly.

7. “You forgot to thank the employees for the little things.”

When they managed to do a little activity with some difficulty, you tend to underestimate and forget to say thank you with a sincere smile. It was not much but it is very valuable to them psychologically.

Now is the time to switch to a more positive side motivated from the perspective of the team. Motivation is one of the biggest driving force to the success of an entrepreneur. In an increasingly tight competition, you need all the help you can get. Do not try to do it with a lackluster team.
