The first question: What can leaders and managers do to motivate their employees?

The first thing is to realize that all people are different. One person’s career goals and values can be completely different than the person sitting next to them. You should ask each employee what they want and gain an understanding of their personal motivators. This way, you will be on track when you want to inspire individuals to perform at peak levels.

The second is to express gratitude and recognize and reward employees’ achievements. One of the main reasons people leave their jobs is because they feel undervalued and underappreciated. Continually show your gratitude and celebrate employee’s successes.

The third is a simple but often overlooked motivator - food! In your office, if possible, have some food or snacks available for your employees and bring in breakfast for the team once in a while. One great way to increase employee attendance at optional meetings is to have a lunch-and-learn where free food is offered. People perform better with a little food in their bellies.

The forth is to offer a flexible work schedule. In today’s corporate environment, the 8-5 schedule is being replaced by flexible work schedules. To reduce lengthy commute times, some folks prefer coming in earlier and leaving earlier, or conversely coming in later and leaving later. Some people can work remotely from time to time, and some may prefer to knock out their work in four 10-hours days and enjoy 3 day weekends. Be open and work with your team on what accommodates their schedule and lifestyle the best – of course, production cannot suffer.

The fifth is to be respectful. Be open, transparent, honest and respectful with your team. Lead by example and be the type of leader who inspires their team with greatness instead of motivating them with fear.

The sixth is to give people the room to grow and offer a career path for them. No one wants to feel stagnant in their role, so continually check in and see what you can do to help them further their development and growth.

The seventh is to “gamify” your most important or redundant tasks. Make the everyday tasks fun. Pete gives the example of in his office having the sales team think of a word of the day that each person needs to use when leaving a voice message. This results in more activity and often more client call backs.

The eighth is to create stretch goals. Stretch goals with a reward incentive are a great way to motivate your team to do more. They inspire people to go above and beyond what is considered expected.

The second question: What is the difference between a resume and a CV?

A resume is a brief summary of your experience, credentials, and accomplishments. This overview is typically 1-3 pages and is the most common.

A CV (which stands for curriculum vitae) is more in depth and is more common for those with an academic or scientific background. A CV can be up to 10 pages and gets more into the details about what each of their specific previous roles entails. Pete’s tip is to always tailor your resume for the position you are applying for.

The third question: What is a good starting salary?

In Jacksonville, the average starting salary for college graduates is $41,000. This will of course differ based upon what job they get and what field they are in. The current mean salary in Jacksonville is $46,000-$47,000 and the salaries for all professions in Jacksonville have increased by 1% in this last calendar year. One thing to also consider is that the cost of living is 5-6% lower in Jacksonville then the rest of the country so the pay for people living in Jacksonville will also reflect this.

The forth question: What second language is the best to learn?

One of the best languages you can learn is Spanish. It’s versatile and most commonly used in the US. The second best language to learn would be French.

The fifth question: How do you recommend overcoming adversity at work?

We all deal with adversity at some point in our lives – whether it’s in our personal lives or business. The first thing to do is shine the mirror on yourself and ask yourself if you are part of the problem. The second is Pete’s take on the Serenity Prayer where he says when faced with adversity to accept what you cannot control and to look to the things you might be able to change. Finally, you may need to reset your goals or the steps to reaching those goals. Accept that failure is part of the path to success.

It's all there, now it's real

Now that you have me, do you want me still?

My kisses are history they go back a long time

Uh, and I'm tired of loving

Somebody that's not mine
