Eight Easy Ways Executive Leaders Can Maintain Positive Workplace Morale

Maintaining a positive workplace atmosphere is vitally important to the success of any organization. While big changes and decisions require careful thought and planning, there are some small changes you can make to keep your work environment healthy.

Smile. This may sound a little silly, but a positive attitude starts with the leader. Giving employees a sincere, friendly smile starts any interaction in an open, engaging way. Even a rueful "we're all in this together" smile during challenging times can go a long way toward making employees feel comfortable and reassured.

Keep your door open, literally. Let your employees know that they are welcome to bring their ideas and concerns to you. Keeping your door open is a visible cue that you are approachable, available, and aware of what is going on outside your office.

Keep your space organized. Just as a smile is a visible positive gesture, a tidy workspace is a visible professional statement. If your door is open and employees are coming to you, the Executive Leader's sense of order and organization can serve as a good example for others to follow.

Watch what you say. When talking about future decisions, be careful about what your employees unofficially hear from you. Rumors can spread quickly and can cause confusion before (and even after) you make an official decision. Be consistent and keep control of what you tell your employees.

Put things in writing. When you do make a decision, it helps to have it in writing. Executive Leaders need their entire staff to be on the same page, and a written document, even email when appropriate, can go a long way to keeping employees confident that they are working correctly.

Make sure to address the appropriate people. Keeping the necessary people in the loop is key to ensuring a workplace runs smoothly. But it is also important not to distract people with unnecessary information. Make sure your communication is only with those employees who need it, and do not draw in unrelated employees or managers.

Answer employee inquiry emails promptly. The faster employees have the information they need, the faster they can proceed with their responsibilities. Answering emails in a timely fashion also makes employees feel that you as the Executive Manager take their concerns seriously. Extend the professional courtesy of promptness to both clients and employees.

Back up your employees. Most importantly, make sure your staff knows you stand behind them and their work. If you have concerns about an employee's performance or conduct, talk to them privately. Publicly blaming employees for problems or using them as an excuse for why something did not go well is not only very unprofessional, but will cause your staff to lose respect for you and your leadership. A team with a leader that backs them up is a cohesive, confident team.

Executive Leaders must be aware of workplace morale and be willing to adjust to keep their employees in a positive and productive state of mind. Even just a few small changes can dynamically improve the workplace atmosphere.
