- Demonstrating and quantifying employee contributions.

A clear performance management strategy can be a great way to keep your team focused and motivated in a world that is constantly changing. Recognize the achievement of milestones and phases as a sign of progress toward project success. Remember what truly motivates. Finally, don’t forget that motivation is often not dependent on proximity. It is possible to motivate your team even if you’re not able to gather in the same place (or need to do it while being six feet apart). Although motivation can come in many forms, it is important to think carefully about how it will work. Find ways to keep work interesting. Avoid having too many rules and procedures. Encourage creativity and team members to have discussions.
