Cultivate a culture of effective communication, goal-setting, and empowerment.

As Manager, you need to build your employee’s oneness with the organization. Assigning them responsibilities gives them a sense of ownership in the company and develops a culture and climate where they feel concerned, committed and competent to serve customers exceptionally.
