Sly Motivational Tactics

My project team members have been working very hard lately to complete our project. To motivate them through this rough patch, I gave them massages. It seemed a bit unorthodox for a Project Manager to be giving foot rubs and back squeezes, but that's what I did to relax them. Jay was initially a bit shy, but soon asked me to press harder on his foot. While I love to give and receive massages, I'm not an expert when it comes to massage techniques but I think it was a worthwhile try. They are already on their way to putting more effort into the project (I hope) so I have no doubt it will be a success!
