"How do you reinspire exhausted team members? First, recognize success; you need to recognize what people have done. Second, you need to give people a little bit of rest--maybe a day or two. Third, you need to challenge them with a new, important aspect of the work, something that is going to make a difference. People don't mind working hard and making a difference. Finally, you need to give them that responsibility and let them run with it." -- Dr. Joseph Folkman, PhD
