Is leadership and staff performance improvement a goal of yours this year? Creating an enjoyable work environment is one proven leadership skill you should focus on to create highly productive employees.

Being a business owner, executive or manager in today’s business climate is not easy. You can’t do it yourself, so the best way to exceed your business goals is to have a team of highly productive employees working for you.

How can work enjoyment help ?

A business executive must make the environment enjoyable to work in. Team members perform at their peak when they enjoy what they do and with whom they do it with. Enjoyment doesn’t mean you play cards all day long. Real enjoyment comes when the executive and team are deeply involved in working a critical problem and they persevere together as a complete unit.

The executive sets the tone for the team. Setting the tone for an enjoyable work environment is accomplished by showing that you enjoy your job, that you like the people you work with and that you appreciate their hard work. Thank team members for working through the weekend. Let them take a long lunch if they worked 12 hours the previous day. Praise them for new ideas. Never blame team members for mistakes, laugh and learn from their mistakes. Keep the team focused on winning instead of failing.

I look forward to hearing from you.
