Hi Heather Uczynski, Business Psychologist and Executive Coach, with today’s Management Minute for great leadership. First make sure you share enough information. Don’t let your employees fill in the blanks which leads to rumors. There’s really no such thing as too much communication in the workplace. Adjust your style to the personalities on your team. Don’t assume you can manage everyone the same. If you don’t know how your employees like to be managed or rewarded, just ask. And it’s okay to have fun. Work and fun really aren’t incompatible. Your team wants to enjoy their work. Lead by example. When your employees see you working extra hours, they’re inspired to jump right in to help. And remember to say thank you for a job well done. A simple thank you doesn’t cost anything and can make a huge impact on your employees.
