5 Ways to Be A Great Boss
If you’d like to be a better boss who’s able to produce better results while, simultaneously, increasing the morale and commitment of your team, then you’ll want to follow the tips in the latest Tower Group blog: 5 things great bosses do every day.
1. Find ways to motivate your people
Set high standards for communication, productivity, and professionalism throughout your company. Inspiration at work is about commitment and passion. If your employees love what they do, they will need only a little bit of help from your side to spread their wings.
2. Communicate clearly, professionally, & often
Employees expect their manager’s honest assessment of their performance. In order to credibly provide this feedback, excellent managers must thoroughly understand their organisations and accurately assess progress. Remember that communication is a tool that can (and should) inspire and motivate your people as well as raise and resolve problems.
3. Take time to develop employees & their careers
Set up your employees for success, not failure. Provide them with the tools and training they need to reach their full potential and to meet and exceed the standards you have set. Encourage them to identify their strengths and what motivates them. When possible, incorporate what drives them into their daily tasks.
4. Create partnerships with your people
Make your employees feel like their efforts are truly appreciated. Recognition in the workplace cannot be underestimated. Involve them directly in the success of the organisation. Create and cultivate a sense of camaraderie, where people feel it is fun to come to work because it is a positive and productive environment and they feel they are part of an efficient, skilled, and highly successful community.
5. Build bridges of trust
The most important part of being a boss is constant work on building a bond of trust in your team. There are several benefits to building trust: effective communication, employee engagement and better job performance. To establish trust, create a safe, positive working environment with open, honest, two-way communication. Trust that your employees will meet or exceed organizational goals when working in a productive, safe, and supportive environment.
