Intelligent employees (a.k.a. the ones you want to keep) will always know the difference between safe and healthy versus unsafe and unhealthy.
The purpose of criticism and discipline is not to put anyone down after they do something wrong, but to help them learn how to do things right.
Sustaining morale at every level of an organization involves seeing and respecting the value in people, their accomplishments, their well-being, and their human nature as social beings.
If your strategies are well-considered and motivating, your people will be convinced to stay and become even more involved in the growth and progress of the organization.
Treating your employees like they are the most capable crew that can keep the ship sailing strong is a massive boost to their value.
Enjoying the break that you worked hard for is key to maintaining a positive outlook on your work.
If everyone feels that they’re being given leeway to perform in the best way they know how, they will feel valued as legitimate professionals.
If your employees feel like it only takes a polite “hi” to open a conversation with you at your desk, it would help them be more open – whether with feedback, ideas, or important concerns.
Knowing your employees goes a longer way than you might think. It establishes that you acknowledge their presence. It tells them that you know they exist in the organization. And of course, valued employees are productive employees.
