money is not everything indeed.
One key is having a meaningful job : understand what I do, and what consequences it will bring to the team / to the client / to my company
Feedback is also fundamental : tell your team when job is well done and when you think there are some areas of improvements.
Giving perspective is also key : make your employees understand where they are know and where they could be in 6 months or 1 / 2 years from now. And what do they need to do to achieve a given goal.
Just a few insights to think about...

One of the key motivating factor is "Rewards and Recognition". Since you have already mentioned that you are looking beyond money - recognition would be the key. Recognizing the good work done by a good team/individual would not only motivate him but would also work as an inspiration for the rest of the individuals within the team/group to go that extra mile.

I don't think there is a one size fits all solution to motivating people. Get to know your employees and what is important to them and customize your approach to reward and motivation. Increased flexibility in working arrangements, added responsibility, public recognition, and customizing their job to include more customer interaction are examples. Taking the time to listen to their individual goals/needs and then customizing a recognition approach has been very effective for me.

Love them. Get to know their stories. Carry them in your heart and show it in little everyday expressions.

Communicating clearly, the goals, why or what difference does it make and defining each persons role. Insure and articulate there are no repercussions for mistakes of action; only inaction. Finally, make it fun and celebrate victories.
