Set ground rules

• If there aren’t any ground rules on kindness and civility in your workplace, they might be necessary!

• Ask your employees for their input, and see what they want from their workplace

Lead by !example

• Even if you set ground rules, nobody will take them seriously if you don’t practice what you preach!

• Discipline “mean” behavior to set an example for your employees

Be fair and communicate well

• Make sure your decisions are fair and balanced !

• Employees want to know what’s going on at work, so make sure you explain the “why”, otherwise they’ll start to fill in the blanks themselves

Make time for your employees • Employee

morale will plummet if they don’t think their company cares about them !

• Try and aim for short, weekly one-on-one meetings to touch base

develop mix things up!• Change seating!• Look for ways to pair

employees who typically don’t interact with each other

Hire for !fit, not !just !skill

• If an applicant is extremely qualified but also a complete jerk, then you don’t want to work with them!

• Jerks ruin things for everybody!• You can often tell during an

interview if somebody is going to be a jerk
