Motivation makes the franchisee: Get tips on staying motivated.

May 19, 2021

Motivation is the key to our output. If somebody isn’t motivated enough to perform their tasks, it can cause serious harm to the quality of their work. However, it is not always simple: what motivates one individual may not motivate another, because as human beings, we each have different goals and aspirations. Nevertheless, we flourish in a positive work environment, and it is important to keep spirits up in order to thrive at our jobs.

When it comes to franchising, there is a lot of emphasis on self-motivation. Working for yourself requires you to keep yourself motivated to complete daily tasks, but as you are your own boss, time management becomes much more flexible and allows you to work as and when you want to.

Below are a few examples of tips that you can take advice from. These will give you an idea of how to manage your levels of motivation, as well as encourage those you work with.

Different strokes for different folks

Various factors come into play when it comes to motivating others. What do they strive to achieve? Are they more interested in financial reward or simply being happy? Everyone goes to work with different goals in mind, and it is these points that franchisees must consider when they go about their jobs.

Learn what your employees want, and this will help you build the foundations that you can use to motivate the people around you.

Build self-esteem

It is amazing what we can all achieve when we are in a positive mindset. Those who have higher levels of self-esteem are more likely to continuously improve their output. They take risks that the more conservative of us would rather not take, because they exude confidence and relish the thrill of tackling new challenges.

It is their motivation that comes from this self-esteem, and when you have confidence in your ability to think and act effectively, you can overcome difficult challenges. This will lead to you succeeding more often than failing. Franchising can be a risky business, so building your self-esteem up as a franchisee can prove to be a vital cog in your machine.

Acknowledge yourself and your employees

Giving your employees credit and a pat on the back is one of the keys to successful employee motivation. It builds trust between the management and the workers, and this gives the employees confidence in their abilities, motivating them to continue working at the same pace.

When it comes to yourself as a franchisee, you are responsible for promoting your own personal growth and motivation. This can help you to overcome obstacles that you feel you are facing e.g. boredom, a lack of a challenge etc.

Maintain a positive relationship with your franchisor

The camaraderie between a franchisor and a franchisee is an important one. For each franchise to remain motivated and successful, the franchisor should maintain an open line of communication and build a strong relationship with each franchisee.

As an NIC franchisee, you will benefit from support across many facets of the business, but also open communication and honest feedback: if you are doing a good job, we will tell you! If insight is required to help improve operations, we also offer mentoring support to get you back on track.
