Hey there! I am Eric Bailey, Global Motivational speaker and corporate workshop facilitator. I have customized presentations for people in 13 different countries with over 5,000 people in attendance at a session. 

As a leader, I know firsthand how challenging it is to keep your team consistently motivated and engaged. But I’ve figured out a few strategies that work well for me. 

When my team starts a project, I’m always with them, ensuring they’re excited about what’s coming. And as a motivational speaker, I’m constantly finding ways to create a thriving and productive work environment, motivating and engaging employees.

Chapter 1 | What Motivates My Team

Understanding my team’s motivations is critical to unlocking their full potential. Research shows that aligning their work with their passions increases happiness, inspiration, and engagement. This is why it is important to highlight employee motivation initiatives.

So, I collaborate with my team to sculpt their responsibilities and fine-tune their duties based on their unique interests. It’s a process of self-discovery that boosts participation and commitment from my team.

Chapter 2 | Creating a Culture of Appreciation

Appreciating my team’s efforts plays a significant role in maintaining their motivation and engagement. That’s why I implemented a culture of recognition, where we celebrate achievements and contributions. It boosts morale and creates a positive work environment.

Regular feedback and acknowledging accomplishments demonstrate that their work is valued, which motivates my team to continue giving their best. Also, it is a useful tip for engaging team members.

Chapter 3 | Enhancing Growth Opportunities

My team stays engaged when they see opportunities for growth and development within the organization. I encourage them to set personal and professional goals and provide the necessary resources and support.

Offering training programs, mentoring opportunities, and career advancement paths are some of the ways to keep employees motivated and enhance their skills and shows my commitment to their long-term success.

Chapter 4 | Fostering a Sense of Purpose

I genuinely believe that employees become more motivated and engaged when they feel that what they do matters. I prioritize communicating my company’s mission and vision to my team and helping them understand how their roles contribute to our goals.

When each team member feels that they are making a valuable contribution, it instills a sense of purpose and meaning in their work, leading to better outcomes for everyone.

Did you know? Employees who are invested in the firm are 87% less likely to leave the firm.

Chapter 5 | Promoting Work-Life Balance

One of my values is maintaining a balance between work and personal life. When I care for myself, I can better show up as my best self at work. I encourage my team to prioritize self-care, set boundaries, and maintain a healthy work-life integration.

My team can achieve a better work-life balance by offering flexible work arrangements and wellness programs and promoting a supportive work environment, resulting in higher motivation and productivity.


As someone committed to employee motivation and engagement, I know it takes consistent effort to create a culture that genuinely supports your team.

We can cultivate a highly motivated and engaged workforce by understanding individual motivations, creating a culture of recognition, providing growth opportunities, fostering a sense of purpose, and promoting work-life balance.

Remember, investing in your employees’ motivation benefits their professional growth and contributes to your organization’s overall success and productivity.
