How to Reboot Performers who have lost interest at work?

When a performer or your best employee loose interest at work, the problem is mostly related to will not the skill. To reboot the confidence and motivation, a leader should focus on inheriting enthusiasm and offering support.

What can cause the best performers to lose motivation?

A lack of motivation can be because of some factors, including:

Lack of career progression


Lack of confidence in management decisions

Feeling under-appreciated

Unmanageable workload


Unsuitable working environment

Lack of communication and transparency

Signs of the best performers to lose interest at work:-

Lack of Focus 

Irregularity at work 

Spending more time away from the work desk 

To start working sometime after arriving to the office

A general change in moods towards colleagues or peers 

Inappropriate Comments or remarks

A distant from colleagues

Ways to Reboot your performers:-

1)Simply ask what the problem is:-

Avoiding an issue isn’t the way to deal with the situation. 

Asking an employee or performers if they’re having a problem, and if there is anything you can do to help him or her, will be appreciated and enough to begin resolving any issues. 

As a leader, you must look after towards your team or individual employees and establish a relationship that creates the freedom to express yourself to have open discussions about any issues.

The main problem is that an employee’s workload is too much for them to reach a specific deadline. 

     2) Take a special interest in your employees:-

If your employees respect you and know that you take a genuine interest in their wellbeing and career aspirations, then they’ll be more confident that their efforts will not go unnoticed.

Displaying a real and honest desire to help your team progress will encourage them to produce work that they’re proud of, and want you to be just as impressed with.

Regular ‘catch-ups’ with a manager are a great way for both parties to stay aware of each other’s projects, ideas, and any potential problems. 

These mini-meetings also help to strengthen the manager-employee relationship and build a cohesive team culture.

3) Set clear goals:-

If an employee knows and fully understands what it is they’re working towards, then it’s easier for them to plan and manage their time to achieve their goal. 

Not being given clear milestones and an ultimate goal is confusing and can make tasks feel pointless and a waste of time.

Having clear goals also helps employees to measure their success. 

Completing projects ahead of time, or achieving over-and-beyond the original target, can be a great boost to motivation.

4) Give employees something to strive for:-

Offering additional incentives in addition to standard pay and reward can be a powerful motivating tool.

Creating a sense of healthy competition is a management tactic that’s been successfully used by sales teams for years – and one that could be replicated in other departments, too. 

Organization-wide incentives to achieve specific goals should be used to improve employee well-being and encourage a sense of community and collaboration.

Using a company environment to create a community is very effective. 

To share employee news, competitions and incentives stimulate conversations and cultivates a happy and connected culture. 

Happy, cohesive employees are more motivated to do well and drive the business forward.

5) To Offer time flexibility to the Employee

Showing that, as an employer, you can be flexible and adapt to your employees’ needs improves motivation as well as internal relationships and wellness.

 Employees who are able, should they need to, to work remotely or work different hours will feel valued and respected by the organization – and, in return, they’ll be more motivated and productive.

6) Build trust as a leader:-

People respect others that they can trust: if your team members don’t believe you, you’ll have difficulty motivating them. Gaining trust requires time and transparency; a good leader is open, honest and shows respect for their whole team. 

Employees who know they can trust their manager will feel comfortable approaching them if they have any issues or feel unmotivated. 

It’s far better than they discuss their issues with you rather than look for a new job elsewhere.
