Keep monitoring your team member whether they are happy with their work, with their fellow members, and definitely with you. If they’re not, identify the reasons and find the solution ASAP!!!
Don’t punish for deficiency!!
Too err is human. We all make mistakes. But those are wise who take lessons from the mistakes. If your team mates make mistakes, don’t penalize them–instead, encourage them to try again and make things right. But never encourage unethical behaviors as well.
Impose a clear goal
As a leader, it’s your job to make a clear goal for your team member. And once you do that, make sure everyone knows about your goal and also let them know the pros and cons of your goal, what their relative responsibilities are, and what the team’s duty to reach the goal.
Eliminate useless meetings
Frequent meetings can be a colossal waste of time—it may waste valuable hours of productivity. Create a proper plan for your meetings and also be prescriptive and avoid descriptive discussion. Evoke only the people who really need to attend and need to learn, start the meeting on time, and then conclude the meeting as quickly as possible.
Everyone likes to be praised. Very often praise works better than money. Show your sincere gratefulness for the unique dedication everyone makes to the team. You can do that just by saying thanks or giving any gifts for their contribution.
If your team member is well organized, self-disciplined and creative enough for finding solutions to various problems, just don’t let them work alone. Support them as much as you can, and they will be inspired to do the same for you and for the team. Never let them feel that they are alone. Make them feel that they are in a team.
Don’t Let You’re People Become Effortless
Avoid hard and fast rules and routine. Being tough is the enthusiasm killer. Let people explore and discover. Make the work as interesting and enjoyable as you can. Always try to find an easy and pleasant way to do the work and make the work enjoyable for all.
Dignify Each Success
Even the smallest achievements should be celebrated and need to be proclaimed. A big achievement stars from thousand small steps. Hymn each and every goal achieved. Show to your team that all of you made one more important step forward and here is not just the end of your journey.
Never Criticize your team member in front of others

It doesn’t mean that they are ignoring their duties. So don’t let your mind to judge them quickly and criticize them in front of others directly or indirectly.
