These 3 Terrible Office Habits Will Kill Morale at Your Company

Morale

Working in a healthy working environment is largely dependent on the efficiency and health of the leadership.  Even though it is sometimes hard to believe, executives and employees are human too and they it is easy for them to get lost in their busy schedule rather that actively finding ways on how they can address the needs of their employees.  After all, who can set the atmosphere of a working environment of an organization but the leaders themselves.

If you want to be respected, well liked and effective, you should avoid some of these common mistakes that can directly have an impact on the morale of your employees:

  1. Trying Too Hard to Be Everywhere

As a leader, you are held responsible for overseeing the progress of all projects your team are managing. When you have new people in a team, it can be hard to let go of the reins and trust them completely to get things done the way you want them. Although it can be easy to check in with them often to make sure everything is running smoothly, you can end up inhibiting the productivity and creativity of the team.

  1. Not having time to Listen

Your daily schedule is already filled with important phone calls, emails, and deadlines to meet.  Some days it is easy to lose track of time and you end up neglecting your own needs, as well as the needs of your team.

You need to make sure that you build an office environment that welcomes originality and is considerate to the concerns of your employees.  Giving your team the chance to come up with new and better ways of completing important tasks can save your company time, resources and money in the long run.

  1. Forgetting to Say Thank You

As human beings, we have a need to feel appreciated and needed.  When you forget to acknowledge the great work of a person or a team effort, you can end up making your employees feel underappreciated, and it won’t be long until they go looking for work for somewhere else in an environment who will acknowledge their value.

Remember: Follow through. Be accountable. Say it and then deliver on it.
