Become A Better Boss With These 3 Tips
When it comes to getting the best from your employees, you really need to look at how you communicate with them as their boss. Staff members perform better when they feel respected and valued in their roles and reciprocate that trust in doing their job well.
However, there is more to getting the most out of your team than simply being a nice boss. You do need to keep your employees best interests at heart to see how this can benefit your company on the whole.
Sure they are there to work for you and do the job you pay them to do, but, there are ways and means to go about this and becoming a caricature of a horrible boss isn’t one of them!
If there are opportunities within your company for staff members to advance, the giving them the correct tools to do the job will not only help them to feel like a valued member of the team but also be beneficial to what they do for you on a day to day basis.
Can you send them for additional training or enrol them in higher education?
- If so, can you
for staff members can help them to go further in your company?
- If so, they will be able to feedback this knowledge and training as they carry out their jobs and deliver the quality of work and level of service you expect from your staff members.
Respect for their time outside of the job.
This is an important one. Employees respect bosses who appreciate they have a life outside of their work.
No one should be expected to put a job above everything else in their lives. This is important for everyone but especially those who have children or family members they need to take care of.
Finding that line between allowing them the flexibility to work from home if the job allows it, compassion for the unexpected issues that crop up, eg child illnesses or anything else and not being taken advantage of can boost staff morale.
Nothing brings a workforce down more than knowing their boss refuses to allow them some slack for those hiccups in life no one can account for.
Listen to Concerns.
Your staff members are the ones doing the work for you and with you. How often do you listen to them?
Not just office chit chat but on more serious issues?
Such as, if things aren’t working well or if you would benefit from a change in the way you work to be more efficient. It makes sense, that if they are the ones doing the job role, they will know when something isn’t working and can be done better.
Value their input, encourage it and see how you can become a more well-oiled machine and hone your collective skills to boost the company and boast a more productive, efficient and happier workforce.
