Culture is a vital component in every successful business. These six culture builders go a long way to help a business establish a good culture!
- Cultivating PHD
- Passion in execution,
- A heart that yearns to bring projects to fruition, and
- The desire to play a significant role in the organization’s continued growth and success.
These are value-adding qualities that leaders should first possess, then look out for in subordinates.
- Honouring all subordinates
Leaders should acknowledge and celebrate subordinates at all levels, not just top-performing members. Normal subordinates too want to know that their contributions, big or small, obvious or subtle, are meaningful and appreciated. Furthermore, they will be touched by their leaders’ sincerity and humility when all are appreciated for their efforts.
- Using I.T.
Get accounting softwares, customer-management softwares, logistics softwares, ERP systems and what not. Leaders have the responsibility to be forward-looking and up-to-date, so that productivity increases with advances of time. If subordinates have to slog and stress over something that could easily be solved with technology, all eyes are on you.
- Embracing the Pantry
Economists have conducted a study on the correlation between happiness and productivity. Statistics show that productivity raises by 12% in general when subordinates are happy. One way to make them happy is to create a comfy pantry/lounge!
- Minimising Meetings
According to a survey by OfficeTeam, a division of Robert Half International, 45 percent of senior executives surveyed said that their employees would be more productive if their firms banned meetings for a least one-day a week.
- Providing Constructive Feedback
Giving feedback to your colleagues and employees provides them with an observer’s insight into how their performance is progressing, as well as advice to solve any problems.
