ARTICLE OF THE MONTH: 12 Practical Ways to Motivate Your Staff
Employees aren't machines. It would be a great lapse in judgment to expect them to report several hours a day, do routine work, and deal with different kinds of people without eventually getting bored, disinterested and lost.

Demotivated employees
affect a company's performance. As their boss/leader, it falls on your shoulders to remedy this before it gets out of hand.
Here are 12 practical things you can do to bring back their enthusiasm.
The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player by John C. Maxwell
Book Review by a TLP Cohort #4 Member

The 17
Essential Qualities of a Team Player
is written by John C. Maxwell. This book explains the 17 qualities that are key in being a team player in the workplace. Maxwell touches on several qualities by writing about real life situations. I would recommend this book because it's an easy read and full of great stories and quotes.
