A team can use influences strategies in many ways. However, if you want to know the most effective way, then you will have to experiment a bit. Here are some suggestions. 

First, you can ask the members of a group to see what they want to make them perform best. Do people want more days off or better hours or bigger bonuses, or something else. Taking a poll might help. 

Second, you will also have to experiment via trial and error to see what works best. In other words, see what incentives work best in a given situation. 

Third, you might want to talk to other successful groups or companies to see what they do. Time tested methods work for good reason.
