Fyi, writing "I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!" on the memos you use to communicate with staff is not sufficiently motivating or encouraging, and I don't believe that you believe it especially when everything else you say says otherwise. It probably looks good when the DM comes to visit though.

I did try to motivate my staff with contests, but eventually I just couldn't afford it (since it was coming out of my pocket).

Or what about when your DM calls you and demands that you "Will do it". For example, calling me on a relatively slow day to demand that I sell two pieces of fine art. NOBODY wants the fine art.
