The key aspect in being successful in influencing and motivating is to make sure that your employees have a contribution to both the team process and the team result. By allowing them to contribute in te team process and have responsibility will usually encourage people and know that they are a part of the team. MOreover, this should tag along by good communication along with genuine interst in his/her thinking. Secondly, allowing them to contribute in the team result including opportunities for self fulfilment and personal development would highly motivate employees. The last and most imporatnt factor in motivation is trust. WIthout trust, the person you motivate will think you are manipulating which might end up demotivating them.
