Detoxify your office
Remember, small gestures as well as big initiatives will offer the most effective course correction. These tips will get you started. Constantly evaluate your company culture and try using the app Culture Amp. Make positivity a target – managers should be measured on staff engagement. Encourage staff to make decisions and hold them accountable for their results, but don’t punish mistakes. Embrace good ol’ fashioned manners – say hello, please and thank you. Reward and recognise top behaviours. Show empathy and respect – the more compassion you show, the more resilient your team will be. Encourage constructive confrontation. Nip backstabbing in the bud by creating a safe place where people can share their views constructively and positively without fear of retribution.
