A little text can have a big impact. It can change a parent's engagement from reactive to proactive

I hold a BA in Child Development, with a minor in Psychology, and honed my teaching skills as a Preschool Teacher for nearly 10 years. In that time, I also was accepted into the Mentor Teacher State Program and trained early childhood education student teachers from the local community college. Then I took the leap into the biggest journey of all – Parenthood. My two children hone my parenting skills daily and it is because of them that I am able to relate so intimately with the parents I work with. You tell me your story and I will most likely say, "I've been there." In 2003, I became a Parent Educator working at a family resource center. I began facilitation toddler/preschooler playgroups and teaching part-time at a parent education preschool. I found I had a lot to say to the sleep-deprived, anxious, first-time parents who were full of questions. I was pulled to do more of this work. I became a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and now teach parenting classes and workshops.

Train your employees so they'd have a positive attitude. They're learning something and both the company and employee benefits from it.

A good way, if it were me, would be to provide rewards and make it fun like the way Google does it.

Why are most of us working? To earn an income and support our loved ones so I would say provide performance-based bonuses and incentives, that's sure to give them the urge to go over and above

Make them feel appreciated. It's always great to give praise and appreciation where it's due and recognize individual efforts

I always make it a point to have informal gatherings with my employees, be it in an expensive restaurant or just casual coffee down the street.

Relate to your employees. Have a good level of personal interaction with them. This would make them feel important and not just another dispensable person.

The best way is to motivate is to praise them when they are doing something good. The most impactful thing is to have employees discuss these contributions in positive changes so that they can feel their work is more than just a job.
