The Great Commission Ministries in the Kingdom of Bahrain launches our yearly worker's Night in the Upper Room last January 19, 2018. The GCM brethren were encouraged and motivated in the Ministry. I would like to share the following motivational strategies to our GCM Workers.
Motivating yourself to get going and gain momentum is one thing, but inspiring others is another. It starts with your own motivation and continues with strategies that speak to your people. Use the following ideas to give those around you an extra boost of motivation:
• Communicate with Clarity. Before you try to motivate others to act, be sure you know exactly what to ask for. Then communicate it as simply and clearly as you can. After all, people cannot do what they do not understand. We have a strong group in Viber that spreads our information in seconds. We can communicate through this interface and share our thoughts with regards to the Church activities.
• Be Committed to a Purpose. The one common denominator of all great people in history is that they believed in what they were doing. They were dedicated and committed to their vision and purpose. People will always be persuaded more by the depth of your convictions than by the height of your logic. So, to motivate others, always show them your commitment.
• Give People Recognition. Few things motivate us better than praise. When you tell others that they are doing a great job, it makes them want to work even harder to continue earning your praise. We all have a desire to feel needed and important. For that reason, recognition can be the most dynamic of all motivating factors. During the Worker's Night, most of them were blessed and they were recognized according to their faithfulness and dedication in the Ministry.
• Believe in Them. How you see people determines at what level they will perform. If you see them as problems, that’s what they become. If you see them as successes, they’ll be successful.
Successful leaders are able to fulfill their vision not only through the contribution of others – because they understand people and know how to motivate them.
We are looking forward to have a dedicated and spirit-led workers in the year 2018!
