Four Tips And Observations For Leaders
I really like these four leadership tips and observations from the book, 1001 Ways To Energize Employees:
- Nothing creates more self-respect among employees than being included in the process of making decisions.
- Decisions must be made at the lowest possible level for management at the top to retain its effectiveness.
- Hold an annual "Olympics" at your workplace that includes competition in the areas of sales, production, administrative support, IT, etc. It'll provide the opportunity for employees to show off their skills that will energize all employees and boost morale.
- Ensure employees know you've read the important reports they send to you. Get an ink stamp that says "Read by [insert your name]" and stamp each report you read. Then, route the report back to the applicable employee. The quality of reports will likely improve!
