40 Amazing Motivational Quotes for Employees

short motivational team quotes

Communication is the key to all relationships.

It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about personal or professional relationships here – no one can do without effective communication.

In order to build better relationship with your friends, family, clients or employees you must hone your communication skills.

Team communication in particular is important to master. For a team to function effectively, there must be open channels of communication.

In this article we’ve put together some of the best inspirational team communication quotes to inspire your team to have better conversations.

Alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much.
- Helen Keller

In almost any team that’s bigger than a few people, there is someone who prefers to work alone and have as little interaction with others as possible. This is fine as long as all the committed work as a team gets done. However, active participation from everybody spurs ideas and resources (team members effort) can be used more efficiently and therefore things move faster.

In teamwork, silence isn’t golden, it’s deadly.
- Mark Sanborn

#1 rule of team communication is that everybody should be able to voice their thoughts and ideas. When you feel like some of your team members aren’t contributing enough to the discussions, then try to understand the real reason behind this and possibly solve it. Collectively discussing ideas always brings more on the table than doing it solo.

If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
- Henry Ford

There’s nothing better than having your team on the same page and moving towards the same goal. That’s why we suggest keeping meetings short, concrete and frequent.

The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
- Babe Ruth

We see this a lot. People have their own preferences and some group of people and departments like to handle communication on their own terms. Often, e-mail is used for communication across teams. Fleep is built to help you manage all your team chats and cross-team conversations on one platform so that you could play together and play good.

The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.
- Peter F. Drucker

And not only hear. Only a small percentage of what we say is received via our voices. Nonverbal communication is the single most powerful form of communication.

Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Hopefully, every team-leader has had these moments where everything is moving. The wheels are turning and progress is being made. Getting people more effective is through self-motivation. Getting things done fast and off your tasklist is definitely satisfying and motivating for lots of people. This can only happen when information moves fast and between the right people. That’s something we aim to achieve with our collaboration software.

Communicate in a respectful manner – don’t just tell your team members what you want, but explain to them why.
- Jeffrey Morales

Having a sense of purpose in your actions is important. You’ll always come off as someone good to work with when you let people know your motives.

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
- Plato

One of the most powerful skills to master as a team player is to know when is not the time to talk about your dog or iterate thoughts of others just because sake of talking. We’ve all been to one of these meetings where someone just keeps talking about something that was covered already. Be wiser, listen carefully and respect the time of your team members. Complement each other, don’t compete for attention.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.
- George Bernard Shaw

Never assume people understand you the way you convey your ideas. This can be especially harmful in text-based environment, where there’s more room for interpretation. Additionally, if we’re talking about text-based group conversations, we cannot assume that everybody understood the message the same. If you don’t get a response to your idea, ask for feedback or try break it down to smaller pieces.

Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you now.
- Jim Rohn

We, humans often think with our emotions and feelings. That’s not a bad thing at all. If we speak with passion and great enthusiasm, we inspired others to follow. Having enthusiasm is contagious and gets your team going faster.

There is only one rule for being a good talker – learn to listen.
- Christopher Morley

Everybody has their own style, but nothing beats being respectful for your peers. Try to be someone who adds value to the conversations and not someone who grabs the attention.

I have always believed that technology should do the hard work – discovery, organization, communication – so users can do what makes them happiest: living and loving, not messing with annoying computers! That means making our products work together seamlessly.
- Larry Page

Well, the founder of Google sure knows what he’s talking about. Technology is a wonderful helper to make our lives more simpler. If you’re not using any project management and/or collaboration software for daily conversations a task management – you’re missing out.

Any problem, big or small, within a family, always seems to start with bad communication. Someone isn’t listening.
- Emma Thompson

Businesses and teams are like families. They need to co-exist, get along and generate outcome (in business it’s new products, revenue, campaigns etc). The closer together they work, the higher is the chance of success. That means having fluid conversations.

To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
- Anthony Robbins

We all come from different beliefs and have different perceptions. Therefore the way we send and receive information varies greatly.

10 Actionable Tips To Boost Teamwork

Motivational quotes to inspire your teammates are a great way to galvanize the troops, but they aren’t enough.

No team has ever been built on a proverb or a selection of team quotes and sayings.

What you need are actionable changes to your workplace that foster effective teamwork andcollaboration. Once you have a team-friendly workplace, you can use quotes about teamwork to maintain those levels of productivity. Here are 10 tips to create a dream work environment that’s tailor-made for effective teamwork:


1. Hire The Right People For The Right Roles

Poor communication isn’t the biggest roadblock to creating a dream workspace for team building. The biggest deterrents to effective teamwork are skill gaps.

You could have teammates that love working alongside each other, but talent wins in the end. As long as they’re in roles that don’t suit them, you’re going nowhere.

No amount of camaraderie is going to help an employee succeed in a role they’re not built for. Having the wrong employees in the wrong roles will drastically slow down your team’s progress. This will lead to widespread resentment and frustration among your employees. 

Not the ingredients you want when building a successful team, right? 


2. Use Top-Notch Project Management Software

A good project management tool can facilitate effective teamwork in your organization. It’ll give your organization the structure it needs to support a collaborative effort on all your projects.

3. Take Time To Get To Know Them Personally

A team is far more than just a group of people working independently. A good team of people is a collective unit that can trust and respect one another. And the only way to truly gain someone’s trust and respect is to get to know them personally.

Treating a group of people as cogs in a machine will only get you so far. It’s only when you start looking at them as human beings, will you take your team to the next level. 

It’s a great way to build a strong relationship with each employee and make them feel valued as a team member.


4. Use Each Employee’s Strengths and Weaknesses To Your Advantage

Once you know an employee personally, you’ll have a better idea of their talent and individual strengths and weaknesses. As each employee brings something unique to the table, it’s up to you to decide how to get those skills working together. 

Organize your team and company work processes to get the best out of each employee’s strengths and weaknesses. Once you’ve mastered this, your team will be working together like a well-oiled machine.


5. Create A Common Long-Term Job Goal

You need to establish clear-cut, long-term company and job goals. Without this, it’s impossible to keep all your employees on the same page. 

The best time to introduce these job goals would be during your hiring process or as part of their onboarding activities. Communicating this vision at the start is a great way for an employee to quickly adjust their personal goals to what’s expected at the company. 

This ensures that everyone is working on the same wavelength, which makes it easier to work alongside each other. As they’re all striving towards the same company goal, it’s easier for them to collaborate and accomplish things together.


6. Define Roles

While creating a common goal is important, good leadership needs to establish a set of employee roles too. This will dictate the path they take to chase your long-term vision. 

Without a clear-cut reporting structure, it’ll be impossible for your team to get anything done. 

If there’s a company work problem: 

  • Who will your team turn to? 
  • Who’s in charge of what? 
  • Who makes the calls?

Answering these questions ensures that your team’s progress won’t come to a grinding halt every time an issue pops up. Your team will know exactly what to do and can steer ahead easily.


7. Encourage Feedback and Communication

Your team needs to have the confidence and comfort to voice their opinions and ideas. You must create a work environment that encourages feedback and allows people to express themselves in a safe, respectful atmosphere.

Once your employees feel comfortable expressing themselves, they’ll find it far easier to work together as a great team. 

Another good tip is to specify the communications policy of a company during the hiring process. This should include the company’s preferred mediums of communication along with a redressal system. This gives them a reference point on how to channel their views and ideas in a way that aligns with the company’s preferences. 


8. Use Brainstorming As A Team Building Exercise

Brainstorming sessions are the perfect place for leadership to encourage teamwork and communication. Pay special attention to team members who have a hard time speaking up and voicing themselves. This is the perfect platform for them to build their confidence and to get them actively contributing.

Treat every idea in a brainstorming session with respect and never shoot anything down without a clear reason. Remember, you’re using this to encourage employees to speak up – dismissing their contributions without a valid reason is the quickest way to alienate them. 

When done right, a brainstorming session is a great team building activity to get your employees actively involved in a project and make them feel valued in your company. The more invested they are in a project – the better they’ll perform!


9. Don’t Limit Yourself To The Office

Building an open and inclusive workplace is an important part of fostering effective teamwork. However, it’s often not enough.


Because at the end of the day, it’s still a workplace. It’s uncommon for employees to let their guard down and get comfortable in a space they associate with work.

That’s why an out-of-the-office game or trip should be a core part of your team building strategy. Once you’re out of the office, your employees can loosen up and really get to know each other as common people. They can bond over things unrelated to work and forge a connection that’s far stronger than your usual group of people working together. 


10. Include A Teamwork Component In Performance Reviews

Including a teamwork component in your performance reviews is a good way to show your employees that you take this seriously. It lets them know that teamwork and collaboration are key parts of their growth in your company. 

Go over an employee’s teamwork contributions during their performance review and outline their strengths and areas of improvement. This gives them a teamwork-related target that they can work toward in the future. 



Never underestimate the power of teamwork. It has the capacity to be adetermining factor in whether your business succeeds or not. It’s important for leadership to create a dream work atmosphere that encourages healthy teamwork and collaboration. 

With that in place, use these teamwork quotes and sayings as a catalyst to motivate your team members and keep them committed to excellence. 

In the meantime, why not sign up for ClickUp and harness its team building potential for your team?
