A Handful of Tips 88 – Relationships

The five best tips to improve your relationships with your staff

1. Never forget the golden rule

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

As a leader or a manager this rule is the key to your success. Treat people the way you would like to be treated if you were in their shoes.

Care for these people with respect, be sincere and show tolerance if they make mistakes.

2. Lead by example

People pay more attention to what you do than what your say.

Set a good example in your work and play and do what you say you will do and always be honest.   

3. Make the time to understand people 

Understand the problems and the pain of others.

Empathise with people in difficult times. Be compassionate and tolerant when things go wrong.  

4. Consider the welfare of others

People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

Show compassion in difficult times and offer help when needed.

5. Encourage and support people 

If you give people support and encouragement they will often perform at a higher level than everyone thought possible.
