Executive Leadership Strategies: Actively Create A Positive Work Environment

The best way for any business or organization to thrive and grow is to have a happy and fulfilled staff. As an Executive Leader, it is in both your and your company's best interest to create a positive work environment for yourself and your workers.

Consistency and communication. If you expect your employees to work together as a team, they (and you) must be on the same page. Make sure your message to your staff is clear and consistent, especially when it comes to your organization's goals. Whether short-term or long-term, be sure your workers know what they are working toward. Also, keep your workers informed of any changes that need to be made. A staff that is kept up-to-date on the state of the organization is one that is confident in carrying out its duties and responsibilities.

Be approachable and remember to listen. One part of communication that is particularly crucial to Executive Managers is listening. Your employees are an invaluable source of information about your organization, whether in regards to opportunities for future growth or areas that should be improved. Make sure your workers know that your door is always open for their input and constructive feedback. Fostering solid professional relationships with your staff will help everyone feel more at ease. It will also help to establish your organization as a cohesive team.

Acknowledge good work. Feeling appreciated is a wonderful boost to anyone's morale. It makes a person feel wanted and respected. Acknowledge your workers' contributions, skills and efforts, and try to be specific and personalize it as much as possible. Give credit for accomplishments and praise efforts that go beyond expectations. Recognizing your workers' positive efforts in front of others is a wonderful motivator. It can also help during the times you have to give constructive criticism. Keep in mind, however, that constructive criticism should always be done privately.

Trust your staff and take responsibility for your decisions. Nothing builds confidence like a leader who trusts his or her employees. Having the boss constantly looking over one's shoulder can cause stress that will affect an employee's performance. Refrain from nitpicking or hovering over your workers. Also, when things don't go well, take responsibility for the decisions you made and actions you took as the Executive Leader before criticizing your staff. Your workers want to know that you are in it with them and that success and setbacks belong to everyone.

Keep the workplace visually appealing. This may seem trivial compared with other organization-building skills, but simply being in a nice place can improve moods and attitudes. However, this doesn't mean an interior design overhaul. It can be as simple as keeping the workspace neat and tidy and, in other words, professional. If possible, give employees personal space, but require them to keep it clean and uncluttered.

If the workplace that you establish is professional and welcoming, everyone (from the Executive Leader to the newest rookie hired) will feel good about coming to work. By keeping the workplace positive, an Executive Manager gives his or her employees as well as the organization an even better chance for success.
