When companies focus more on their bottom line than the happiness of their employees, they are actually making it more difficult to achieve the goals they set. The culture that great leaders cultivate in an office space is critical in ensuring its success. When everyone feels like a team member and working toward the same goal, bolstering the bottom line becomes that much easier.
This New Year, our business consultants at Connecticut Business Centers recommend following these resolutions on how to create the perfect office culture that’s conducive to growth and success.
Promoting a positive office culture with your team members starts individually with you as a leader. Your moods, whether they’re good or bad, can extend into the energy your team has, even in a virtual office setting. Make it a habit to become a beacon of optimism that your team can anchor to even during highly stressful situations. Of course, you don’t necessarily always have to be chipper 100% of the time, but it is important to be mindful of your moods.
Open Communication Lines
Problems tend to start with secrets and while information can be compartmentalized and distributed only to relevant hands, you can open up communications between your team members to promote a healthier working space starting this New Year. This means being honest but kind as well as being accountable for all your actions and decisions. Set an example to allow your employees to feel that they can be open with you about anything and will work with them to resolve any issue that they might be struggling with.
Smart Is Sexy
There’s a common office space culture trait that somehow finds smartness to be a nuisance. Of course, nobody likes being a know-it-all, but give your workers enough freedom to question the decisions you make as their leader. Welcome different insights that might shine some light to an unseen aspect of a project and surround yourself with individuals who can both see the big picture and understand the nitty-gritty of what it takes to achieve your goals.
