How do you improve team morale?

 

Institutions that can communicate a compelling historical narrative often inspire a special kind of commitment among employees. It is this dedication that directly affects a company’s success and is critical to creating a strong corporate legacy,” said author Adam Galinsky, Morris and Alice Kaplan professor of ethics and decision in management.

And:

when employees are asked to think about an alternative universe where their company did not come into being, they come to see their company’s current circumstance and future trajectory in a more positive light. This “near-loss” mentality increases their commitment toward the institution and overall morale.

As I posted here, a variation on this technique can be used for quickly increasing personal happiness as well.

For being more productive at work, I recommend the book Getting Things Done and this video about Inbox Zero.
