Managers are integral when it comes to promoting productivity in the workplace. As a manager, you need to know how to balance being too lenient and being too hard. You need to know how to treat the employees so you can get the best work out of them.
Have a Positive Attitude
When addressing your subordinates, it’s always good to have a positive attitude. Don’t always look at their faults and assume the worst. If they have missed a deadline or have done something incorrectly, try to encourage them so they can do better next time.
Then again, you shouldn’t be too soft. If an employee keeps on underperforming, stops meeting deadlines and is hard to work with, it’s best to be hard on him or her. If you don’t he or she can take advantage of you and make your life more difficult.
It’s not an easy task when it comes to dealing with people. It takes a lot of experience to develop the skill of being a good manager. Even though it can be difficult, it’s good to read about how to manage people and get advice from others. Go to leadership training seminars if possible; this way you will learn strategies to improve productivity in your workplace.
