Want to Hire Your Dream Team? Offer These 5 Unusual Perks ?? ? ?

Did you know that people rarely leave Team Forleo? (Not in a Hotel California kinda way, just in a super happy employees kinda way ? ? ? ?.)

We have a phenomenal team and I love them like family. But getting here hasn’t been easy.

Over the years, I’ve made a lot of painful mistakes and learned even more about keeping your team motivated and inspired.

I’ve always been creative with my company incentives — because I had to. Today I’m sharing five unusual ways to motivate employees by giving you a peek inside the best perks we offer at Team Forleo.

One of the biggest lessons is this:

Motivating employees isn’t all about money. These 5 perks make for a happy, productive team.

If you can’t offer big salaries, but still want to grow and hire your dream team, this episode’s for you.

You’ll learn:

✓ The easiest perk almost every company is ignoring
✓ Why you’ll catch my team making wacky sounds at each other
✓ How to make employees excited to tackle big problems
✓ The one benefit everyone fantasizes about and how you can make it happen

Even if you’re not looking to grow a team, what you’ll learn in this video can help you re-think what it means to be an A-player at work.

Pay special attention to #5 — you can incorporate this in your office without anyone’s permission and it can radically improve the quality of your worklife, fast.

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

Thank you so very much for adding your voice to the conversation. The dialogue and connections that happen in the comment area are truly priceless (and yes, we read them all).

If you have friends, clients or colleagues who struggle to find the right people for their team, share this post. The world needs more happy, engaged and passionate teams!

What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid

This past weekend, I had friends over for a scary movie night. We screamed, jumped and ate more than our fair share of popcorn. That kind of fear can be exhilarating and fun.

But fear can also be debilitating. Especially when it holds you back from doing (or continuing to do) the big things you want to do. From tackling those important projects, tasks and changes that you know, in your heart, must be done.

All of us, no matter how experienced or accomplished we may be, have fears that can hold us back. It’s part of our shared humanity.

But the quality of your life and, ultimately, your destiny will be determined by whether you’re willing to continue to face those fears and move through them — or not.

And second, describe how your life will be different if that fear was a non-issue.

First, you’ll become aware of what you’re truly afraid of.

In this MarieTV, I’m asking two powerful questions that can help you continue to stay on a path of growth, learning and contribution, even if fear has kept you frozen in the past.

First, you’ll become aware of what you’re truly afraid of.

And second, describe how your life will be different if that fear was a non-issue.

You can’t change what you’re not aware of. You owe it to yourself and the world to keep growing.

Now I’d love to hear from you. In the comments below, answer both questions:

  1. What’s the exact fear that’s holding you back?
  2. What would you create or attempt to change about your life if that fear wasn’t an issue?

TEXAS WE ♥ YOU

You’re about to watch an episode of my vlog series called Marie Unplugged. These videos are totally different than my award-winning show MarieTV. Vlogs by nature are raw and off the cuff. So wear headphones if kiddos are around because adult language is likely. Enjoy!

The feedback on our latest MarieTV episode with Brené Brown has been spectacular! If you haven’t had a chance to watch it (or share it) yet — please do. It’s soooo damn good.

But there’s more to this story.

Once Brené and I got our schedules locked, I figured I’d see if I could interview even more people in the great state of Texas. We took our show on the road!

As you’ll see, we had the honor of visiting prior to Harvey. The strong people of Texas still need our support. If you’d like to help those affected by Harvey, here are two resources to consider: 

It’s hard to express just how energizing this trip to Texas was. I learned valuable lessons — about tacos, Buc-ee’s, bat poo *AND* about the undeniable power of trusting that still, small voice inside.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to know:Have you ever said “Yes!” to something that would typically be a no? What was the result?

Thank you SO very much for being here. Your comments and shares are everything

What to Do When You Feel Useless and Alone

This 15-year old girl’s email really touched my heart. What she’s struggling with right now is something many of us wrestle with — no matter what our age.

What do you do when you feel completely useless and alone?

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, how many friends you have or how “successful” you may appear to be.

We all feel disconnected from time to time. And if we listen to (and believe) the voice in our head, we can quickly spiral down into darkness.

In today’s episode, learn three ways you can get back on track anytime you forget your intrinsic value and question your worth in this world.

Extra credit! Comment below, or on social media, with the hashtag #5GreatThings and give a heartfelt shout out to someone you love. Tell them five great things you appreciate about who they are.

Did you ever feel like Ajah did when you were her age? Do ever feel that way now? Let us know how you deal with WKRAP of course – if you have something special you’d love to share with Ajah, comment below.

It’s a beautiful chance to connect more deeply with someone you appreciate and express things that you may often think, but rarely say.

P.S. This is an episode that you may want to share with your closest friends and clients — especially those who could use a little boost of encouragement as they’re building their dreams!

The Mental Exercise That Can Turn Wishes Into Reality

I’m always fascinated by a little “behind-the-scenes” action. For example, I’ve loved hearing about all the mechanics that went into creating the Oscar nominated movie,

(Shout out to photographer Duane Michals for the tweetable inspiration.)

In general, I just really enjoy hearing how people come up with big ideas. So today, I thought I’d take you behind-the-scenes in my own thinking process and share a simple but powerful tool we use on my team to spark our best creative ideas.

You can use this exercise for business or personal reasons (which is why I love it) and it’s especially fun to do with people you love.

In this video, I talk about how this tool helped us conceive of and execute something we’re deeply proud of — our Live Your Dream campaign. There are 40 + case studies and you’ll see how this one simple question created this massive initiative for us.
