Ways to Motivate your Team
By: Naftali Garber 05/26/2015
Motivating a group of people can be difficult, but motivating a group of people that you rely on can seem even more daunting. Once one has a team in place, the next step is to keep driving them towards progress. In an article from Forbes.com on “How Great Leaders Motivate Their Teams”, it is stressed that great leaders motivate their teams by giving them a “why” to believe in. This can mean a number of things, but the example given in the article is to connect employees with the end users (or customers). Here are companies that know the importance of motivation and how they apply it to encourage their employees. Their advice could give you the catalyst to inspire your team.

Venue Valet, LLC is a technology company headquartered in Austin, TX that provides a wide range of products and services specializing in transaction-based venue management systems that bring better data visibility to the venue owner and a better experience to the venue customer. Our flagship product, CallConnect, is a call button, venue management and digital signage system available for dine-in cinemas. CallConnect uses LED lit call buttons that allow customers to signal wait staff when they require service, integrated with an intelligent software system that pulls information from other theater management systems, such as ticketing, food and beverage & POS, and displays all data using a single, easy to read dashboard accessible to food service staff and management. Our digital signage system for your box office, bar area, and auditorium entrance also relies on the same information, so these two systems seamlessly work in concert with each other to bring your theater data to life.
