How to make your employees happier and more productive in the workplace
Welcome to part four of four!
What makes good relationships at work? (part 2)
Avoid gossip in the workplace. Some people may have preconceived ideas about others based on hearsay or gossip.
A wise person will always realize that there are two sides to every story and act accordingly. Always apply the adage “treat as you find”, and you will avoid unnecessary bothersome situations.
Be positive in your dealings with people. Be a “glass half full “, rather than a “glass half empty”, person. Negativity tends to drag people down. Being positive is encouraging and uplifting and leads to good relationships.
Give praise where praise is due. We all like to be praised if we do something well. It doesn’t matter if you are six or sixty year old, praise gives you a sense of worth and wellbeing. A simple “thank you” goes a long way in the workplace and makes people feel valued for their contribution to the organization and therefore leads to better relationships as people have a sense of being part of the team working for the good of all.
