Some employees suffer from lack of morale or low morale. Leaders can help unsatisfied, poor performers with low morale become more disciplined, satisfied and willing to perform assigned tasks without a threat of job loss.
Leaders can improve employees’ morale by being clear about what they want to say, holding active interactive sessions, inviting group discussions, being mindful of how they reward employees, and boosting employees through modelling.
A leader’s behaviour helps others see the importance of their work, especially if leaders consider themselves part of the company team and work with employees to set company goals, instead of being strictly task masters.
The leader must also build a sense of “we” with employees so that they get a feeling of loyalty and belongingness towards the company and contribute to company goal-setting, objectives and resolution of disputes.
