Having a good relationship with your employees is very important. Your employees might sometimes need guidance, and if you can provide it, great! However, if you are not patient in listening and even brush off their concerns it is likely that they won’t properly voice things that might be important to hear in the future. For example, things that have been bothering them or hindering their performance.
In short, whether you have one employee or a team, having meetings, bonding exercises, and providing a comfortable environment are all good ways to promote a healthy and strong work culture environment. Strong foundations and a determined team may go a long way, but ultimately going the extra mile to ensure a positive work environment will yield better, longer lasting results when it comes to performance.
