As a manager, you set the tone for creating a positive work environment for everyone in the office. Studies show that a positive work environment has a direct correlation to work productivity in the office. The more you give, the more your employees will respond to your efforts. Pretty cool, huh?
5 Ways to Build Your Company’s Positive Environment:
- Create (meaningful) conversation with your team –
One of the most important tasks of creating a positive work environment is getting everyone comfortable with the conversation in the room. Give individuals opportunities to speak up. Occasionally, even seemingly insignificant small talk can lead to more meaningful, engaging conversations down the road. So don’t be afraid to encourage conversation with your team!
- Show your appreciation –
Your employees don’t appreciate it when their hard work goes unnoticed. As manager, it’s your duty to make hard-working team members feel appreciated. A simple “atta boy” will go a long way. Not only will you be rewarding the team members who do a good job, you will also be incentivizing others to put in a little extra effort so they can be recognized too.
- Be open minded to everyone’s ideas –
This is crucial. Never let your authority stop you from listening to others’ ideas. Even if your way turns out to be the best way, you have nothing to lose by listening to your employees’ suggestions. Be genuine in your interest and give everyone a chance.
- Trust your team –
A little bit of trust goes a long way. If you want your team to do the best job they can, you have to give them some lee-way. Let them know that you are counting on them, and they will perform better!
- Most importantly, don’t forget to have a little fun!
It’s vital to make sure your office isn’t all work and no fun. Be spontaneous and unpredictable. Planning fun team building events and activities is also a great idea.
Making your workspace a more positive environment will make your team more productive and in the long run more successful.
