Do you what it takes to have a rockstar company? A rockstar culture! And how does that happen? When employees buy into having energy, good character and integrity, you’ll create a workplace culture that people WANT to come to work for!
- Don’t ask people to do things you wouldn’t do yourself. Handing off tasks like getting water, taking out the trash and doing dishes will make sure that your employees feel taken advantage of. Make sure that every person in the company can handle the menial tasks when necessary.
- Keep in touch. As companies grow, this is one of the first things to go. Be intentional about simply knowing the things that are going on in the lives of your employees. Know some of their likes and dislikes. It will make everyone feel valued and appreciated and cared for beyond simply the skills they bring to the office.
- Listen. Inevitably, your employees will come up with great ideas that you didn’t think of. One of the great things about working on a team is that you have multiple people thinking of a solution, rather than just one. Show that you are really willing to listen to your people.
- Admit when you are wrong. This one is simple, but not so easy. It will, however, guarantee that your employees trust you and will want to help you not make those same mistakes again.
