Keeping engineers motivated so that they are able to meet the expectations of an organization and consistently perform at a high level is one of the key responsibilities of an engineering leader.

Here are 5 ways in which you can keep your team motivated.

• Make sure engineers understand the impact and value of the product that they are working in making the lives of customers easier.

• Make sure engineers understand how the product that they are working on contributes to the revenue of the organization.

• Keep them on their toes w.r.t providing them continuous opportunities for growth and development by identifying and aligning work items that could be sometimes 1 or 2 levels above their current level.

• Appreciate and provide recognition of their work across the team and other business functions within the organization.

• Understand their strengths and weaknesses and have open discussions around solidifying their strengths and working on their weaknesses.

I have just called out 5 ways from a vast number of ways in which team members can be motivated.

Proactive leaders will always find new and innovative ways of motivating their teams and team members based on their leadership philosophy, organizational culture and career path progression of team members.
